Prep/Cooking Time: 2+ hours, don’t get in a hurry on this one



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup water

Mix all ingredients, knead, cover, and let rise for 1 hour, 15 minutes. If you have a bread machine with a dough setting, this would be a good time to put that to use.


  • 14 oz your favorite pizza/marinara sauce
  • 8-12oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 oz Canadian bacon
  • 6 oz pineapple chunks. Canned works, but fresh is better

Preheat oven to 450F. Toss dough and spread into metal pizza pan big enough to fit in your oven. Spread sauce evenly over dough, stopping just short of the very edge. Spread cheese evenly over the top of the sauce. Add a little more if you’re feeling particularly cheesy. Finish with Canadian bacon and pineapple. Place in oven for 12-15 minutes, and keep a close eye on it the last few minutes. Let it get done, but don’t let it burn. Let cool for 5 minutes.

I’m enjoying this very recipe during the 2007 Rose Bowl game between USC and Michigan. This is one of two times of the year I pull for USC. The other is when they play Notre Dame.
