Grilled Ham and Pineapple Pizza

This is a grilled ham and pineapple pizza, which we usually refer to as a ‘Hawaiian pizza’. It is both sweet and savory and it is better than anything you can achieve in your home oven.

Grilling it in a closed barbecue or very hot smoker provides a very high dry heat creating a perfect crust. The slight smoke flavor that comes from a barbecue also helps boost the flavor.

The instructions use a pizza stone. Without this there is a risk of burning the bottom of your pizza. If you use a thin tray to avoid this burning, make sure that it is placed in a space in the barbecue where there is no direct heat underneath it.

Ingredients

Pizza Sauce

1 can (8oz | 227g) tomato sauce or tomato puree

1/4 onion very finely diced

1 clove garlic diced

2 teaspoons Italian herb blend

Making the Pizza

1 tablespoon corn grits

1 pizza base, homemade or store-bought

10 ounces (285g) grated cheese

10 ounces (285g) smoked ham, diced

1 can (8oz | 227g) chunks pineapple, drained

1 teaspoon herb rub

Equipment

small bowl

Pizza stone

grill

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat a closed BBQ or smoker to its highest temperature with the pizza stone inside.

  2. In a small bowl add the tomato sauce, onion, garlic, and Italian herbs then stir well until well combined.

  3. Sprinkle the corn grits on a large chopping board or tray. Place the dough already shaped into a large thin disk on top.

  4. Cover the pizza dough with a layer of homemade pizza sauce. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese over the base, then add the ham and pineapple. Top with the remaining cheese. Springle with the herb rub.

  5. Slide the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone in the preheated BBQ.

  6. Bake in the BBQ or smoker until the dough is cooked through and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes to 15 minutes depending on the heat of your BBQ. Serve immediately.
