Smarts: Make sure to watch our videos on how to work with pizza dough for the best results.
- Pizza dough - 1 lb
- Flour - 2 Tbsp
- Cheese, mozzarella - 5 oz, grated
- Green onions - 1 stalk, sliced
- Pineapple - 2 oz, chopped
- Jalapenos - 1, sliced ((remove seeds for less heat))
- Tomato sauce - 1 cup
- Leftover pulled pork (from Tue) - 1 cup
- Red pepper flakes - for serving
- Pineapple - 6 oz, chopped
- Apple cider vinegar - 2 Tbsp
- Maple syrup - 1 tsp
- Dijon mustard - 2 tsp
- Cooking oil - 3 Tbsp
- Romaine lettuce - 4 oz, sliced or chopped
- Cucumbers - 4 oz, chopped
- Pizza dough - Cover in flour and let rest for at least 30 minutes outside of fridge before rolling out. This is tip #1 to good pizza - resting dough gives gluten time to chill out, which makes the dough much more pliable.
- Cheese / Green onions / Pineapple (for pizza and salad) / Jalapenos - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
- Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees and position top rack so it’s at the very top.
- Brush or spray a sheet pan with some oil. Using hands, stretch out pizza dough to cover sheet pan - it should be pretty easy to do if you let the dough rest. Brush dough with a bit of oil.
- Bake dough on top rack for 3 minutes without toppings. This solo time in the oven gives the dough time to crisp up; if you put toppings on now, your crust may get soggy.
- Spread the tomato sauce over dough, cover in cheese, and sprinkle on green onions, leftover pulled pork, pineapple, and jalapenos.
- Bake pizza on the top rack for 8 to 11 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
- While pizza is baking, whisk together apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, Djion mustard, and cooking oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Chop romaine and cucumbers.
- When pizza is ready, toss dressing with pineapple, cucumbers, and romaine. Serve pizza with red pepper flakes and salad on the side!

I substituted the tomato sauce for a homemade BBQ sauce. My husband and I both loved it!0 Helpful
I didn't do the dough quite right. We like it a little crispier.0 Helpful
I've never considered myself a 'baker' nor have I worked with raw dough before, so this started out as a disaster. Flour everywhere and an uncooperative lump of dough sticking to everything. Finally figured it out and the recipe was a huge household hit. Glad I stuck it out...definitely worth the mess and trouble!0 Helpful
