Hawaiian pizza

Ben of What's cooking has a great food blog event called "Food for plastic" which I was wanting to take part in before but never got around to it. Well this month the theme is Kid's because Tupperware is celebrating this month as "Children's Month" and are donating some of the money earned in sales to Boys and Girls clubs. So the idea is to share a recipe you make for your kids or a recipe you loved from your childhood. I have fond memories of nights when my dad was working or whatever and mum would get some Goodfellas pizza (normally hawaiian) and some garlic bread for us (mum, sister and me), so I decided to use this as my entry for this event. I suppose it's cheating if I buy frozen stuff and stick it in the oven, also it takes away all the fun of actually making the pizza dough and assembling the toppings yourself.



It's not really a recipe for this post seeing as I used the pizza dough and tomato sauce recipe I posted about before, but it's made me fall more in love with this pizza dough. I topped the pizza with the tomato sauce, wafer thin ham, pineapple pieces, mushroom, mozzarella cheese and oregano. I also bought a small ciabatta loaf and filled it with some homemade garlic butter before cooking in the oven.

It all turned out great and had me reliving those nights when my mum, sister and I shared a pizza and garlic bread.
