Grilled Hawaiian Pizza

Hungry for another grilled pizza recipe?  Here’s another gem from Branden and I’s collection of grilled pizzas we’ve created.  This one was inspired by our favorite Hawaiian pizza found only at Avalanche Pizza in Athens, Ohio.  There, they not only throw ham and pineapple on their pizza, but they also add irresistible, crunchy bacon to the mix!  So, in true Avalanche fashion, we’ve come up with our homemade version.  Not quite the same, but it comes close to the real deal.

  • Pizza Crust, homemade or refrigerated such as Pillsbury
  • Red Pizza Sauce (we really like Mid’s)
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
  • 1/4 lb. bacon, fried and crumbled
  • 1/4 lb. thick cut ham (we’ve used deli style for simplicity’s sake)
  • 2 c. finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Fry the bacon in a pan until crisp.  Set aside.
  2. Please don’t judge me for this next part…fry the ham slices in the bacon fat until heated through and beginning to crisp.  This adds a nice little crunch to the ham which we really like.  Drain on a paper towel and slice.
  3. Preheat your grill on low and place the pizza crust directly on the grates.  Grill crust until it starts to brown on the bottom and become slightly firm.  The key and pre-cooking here.  Once browned, flip the crust.
  4. Top with sauce, pineapple, bacon, ham, and finally the cheese.  Continue cooking until cheese is melted and the crust is toasted.
