Hawaiian Pizza

Pineapple on pizza may be one of my favorite toppings, I feel like people either love it or hate it! Homemade pizza is where it’s at, of course, you can order it but truly nothing compares to homemade pizza! The best part is you can top it as you please.

Next, gather your toppings:

  • pizza sauce
  • canned or fresh pineapple chunks
  • ham or Canadian bacon, I prefer Canadian bacon
  • sliced red union 
  • bacon crumbles

Pizza Pinwheels with Homemade Dough

Pizza Pinwheels are everything you love about pizza rolled up and baked to perfection. The dough can be stored in the freezer for future pizza cravings, nothing beats homemade pizza!

I never realized what I was missing till I made my own pizza dough, wow, what a difference! Never buying store-bought dough again. This dough can be used for a regular pizza too, not just pinwheel pizzas. Pinwheels are a fun idea, the kids loved them and they would be a hit in lunchboxes, that is whenever we will be heading back to school…

For these pizza pinwheels, I went with the standard pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni. You could use whatever pizza toppings you love, get fancy, or keep it simple. Garden veggie is my favorite however the kids think otherwise, haha. You can store these rolls in the fridge for up to 1 week or freeze up to a month. 

How to make Pizza Pinwheels with Homemade Dough

Pizza dough needs time to rise and this can take anywhere from 25 – 45 minutes. It will rise faster in a warmer climate. To make the dough you will need a food processor, flour, olive oil, salt, cane sugar, warm water, and instant yeast. 

  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Start by adding flour, oil, and salt to a food processor, then process for 30-45 seconds till combined. 
  • In a small bowl combine your cane sugar and 1 cup warm water, stir till sugar dissolves. 
  • Sprinkle in your yeast and let sit till the top looks foamy about 5-7 minutes. 
  • Turn your food processor back on, with the motor running feed your yeast mixture through the feeding tube. Continue to process until dough ball forms, could take up to 1 minute. 
  • Flour a clean surface and knead your dough until smooth and elastic, the dough will be very sticky when removing it from the food processor. 
  • Oil a large bowl and add in your dough, cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place. This will take about 45 minutes to rise and double in size. 
  • Roll dough out on a clean floured surface, roll into a rectangle, about 14 x 8- inches.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Spread the pizza sauce leaving a 1/4-inch border along the edges. 
  • Arrange pepperoni over the sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. 
  • Start rolling up the dough on the long sides, ending at the clean edge, pinch ends to seal. Cut dough into 14 even rounds and place on a prepared baking sheet. If the top of your rolls looks uneven gently press down on them. 
  • Bake for 13- 14 minutes, until golden and crispy. Enjoy
