Hawaiian pizza is a nice change from the usual pizzas. When you are tired of eating plain pizzas with regular toppings like cheese, pepperoni, sausage or veggies, what you need is to make the hawaiian pizza using this super-easy Hawaiian Pizza recipe. What makes Hawaiian pizza so unique is the use of the chopped pineapple as a pizza topping!
