Never mind the haters. No one’s going to judge you if you want your pizza to be full of pineapples. In fact, read on and discover how to create a pizza inspired by Pizza Hut’s Hawaiian Pizza recipe.
For those who are not familiar, Hawaiian pizza does not have anything to do with the country. As a matter of fact, it was a Canadian pizza baker who we should thank for the recipe. Sam Panopoulos took a Hawaii brand can of pineapples and placed it on top of his pizza. And the rest is history. Hawaiian pizza became a rage, and many restaurants created their own renditions of it.
Our personal favorite? Pizza Hut’s Hawaiian Pizza of course! While their pizza, however, has just ham in it, we’ve leveled up ours with the addition of salty smoked bacon to balance out the sweetness of the pineapples and ham.
And if you’re worried about making your own pizza dough, have no fear. This easy Hawaiian pizza recipe uses pre-made dough so all you have to do is add the pizza toppings!

Commonly Asked Questions
How do I make my store-bought pizza dough taste as good as homemade ones?
Firstly, you should always buy quality pizza dough from local pizzeria instead of supermarkets. Yes, some pizzeria do sell raw dough. All you’ve got to do is call and ask! Next, when you’ve got some good-grade dough in your hands, make sure you give it enough resting time to rise. Remember that store-bought dough has been in the fridge for quite some time and would take longer to rise than freshly made dough. We recommend that you let it rise for twice as long as the package instructions. And also make sure you let it rest in a warm place such as under the sun.

The main toppings on a Hawaiian pizza are ham, pineapples, cheese, and pizza sauce. We combined bacon with ham for this recipe to add an extra smoky savory taste to it.
