I got the idea to make this from a Hawaiian pizza the bf ordered at 21st Amendment one night before a Giants game. I tasted some of his pizza and they really did a nice job here. Small pieces of jalapeno give it some heat. At once I wanted to re-create it at home and finally got around to it this week. Off topic, this place is famous for it's watermelon beer, which I highly and enthusiastically recommend. It's really refreshing. They have a beer garden before every game and it's p-a-c-k-e-d.
Makes 1 pizza (serves 4-5)
Raw pizza dough (you can get this at TJ's)
Handful of cornmeal
1/2 thinly sliced onion
Ham (I used thin deli slices which I like better than thick Canadian bacon)
1 diced jalapeno
**Disclaimer: I didn't measure anything.... just went with the flow....
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Get out a cookie sheet and spray it down with Pam. Sprinkle generously with cornmeal.
Dump the pizza dough on the cookie sheet and use your fingers to flatten it into a square-ish shape. The cornmeal really helps to keep the dough from sticking to your fingers. And, it leaves a nice crunchy texture on the crust. AND it's not as messy as flour :)
Once you are happy with the dough, ladle generous amounts of pizza sauce on top. Spread evenly. Add the sliced mozzarella cheese, onions, ham, pineapple, and oregano on top.
