Grilled Ham and Pineapple Pizza

Close up of an almost fully cooked ham and pineapple pizza on a pizza stone that is sitting on a grill in a BBQ.

This is a grilled ham and pineapple pizza, which is sometimes referred 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.
