Ingredients:

3 cups bread flour (you can use pizza flour)

¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
7g dried yeast

300ml warm water
120ml pizza sauce
1 small tin, pineapple pieces
300g Australian leg ham, sliced
1 cup pizza cheese or mozzarella, grate

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 200⁰C.
  2. In a large bowl combine the bread flour, salt and olive oil.
  3. In a small bowl mix together the dried yeast, sugar and warm water allow mixture to sit in a warm place until it forms a sponge.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until a soft sticky dough is formed.
  5. Sprinkle a little extra flour on a work surface and knead the dough 2-3 minutes until smooth. Place the dough into a clean, oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Prove in a warm place until dough has doubled in size.

  7. Spread a little pizza sauce over each pizza base. Top with fresh pineapple pieces and sliced ham. Sprinkle over the cheese.
  8. Bake in the preheated 200⁰C oven for 18-20 minutes until golden and bubbling.
  9. Cut into serving sized pieces and serve immediately.

Notes:

Pizza dough may be made ahead of time and proved in the refrigerator overnight.
