Homemade Hawaiian Pizza
The other day, when I made the pizza dough, I got two pans of pizza base. That time I only made 1 pizza - the mushroom,sausage & tomato pizza and I kept the other 1 pan nicely wrapped with plastic foil and kept frozen.
I was thinking about Hawaiian Pizza of Pizza Hut and wanted to make something like that. I didn´t really remember what was the topping ingredients but I know there´s pineapples slices, salami and shredded cheese. So i decided those were the things I would top my pizza with. For the sauce, I used the leftover from the spaghetti meatballs sauce.

For the shredded cheese, I used the Emmentaler cheese which I guessed is not very suitable for making pizza because when it melts, it doesn´t spread widely over the topping eventhough I thought I had spread generous amount of it. And then I didn´t get the gummy effect when you pull the cheese from the topping (something I like to do when I ate pizza at Pizza Hut). Most pizza recipes recommend the use of Mozarella but at the time I only had Emmentaler in my stock. Maybe next time I would Mozarella and see the different.
However, the pizza still delicious!
