If you don’t like Hawaiian pizza, then I think you’re crazy! I love the combo of ham and pineapple, plus a little cheese mixed in. My kids really wanted a Hawaiian pizza, but I didn’t have enough ingredients on hand to make a whole one.
Instead, I found a recipe for a dough you could roll out and make little pizza bite slices instead! The kids loved it, but I like that you could fill the dough with whatever you wanted to really. I don’t know what I ever did without the internet and Google.
I wouldn’t be here today with this recipe if it wasn’t for Google! Ha!
300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
90g butter, cut into cubes
160ml (2/3 cup) milk
Plain flour, to dust
60g (1/4 cup) pizza sauce (I used tomato sauce)
80g (1 cup) coarsely grated cheddar
100g sliced leg ham, coarsely chopped
1 x 225g can pineapple pieces, drained on paper towel
Extra milk, to brush
½ Cup grated cheese (optional extra)
Preheat Oven to 210C
Prepare oven tray with a quick spray of cooking spray and baking paper (best method for getting paper to stick!)
Prepare your grated cheese, drained and sliced pineapple & sliced ham and set aside.
Add flour and salt to a medium bowl.
Chop your butter into small pieces and add to the flour
Begin to rub the butter into the flour with your fingers, until the flour resembles fine breadcrumbs and no large pieces of butter remain – this can take a good few minutes so be patient (I am not….)
Pour the milk into the flour mixture and using a round ended butter knife begin to cut through the flour until the milk begins to combine.
Flour your bench and tip out the ingredients and gently knead to combine.
Roll out your dough into a rectangle approximately 1.5cm in height – approx. 40 x 30cm
Cover in tomato sauce, add cheese, ham & pineapple and any other vegetables or herbs you are using.
Begin tightly rolling from one of the longest edges ensuring the mixture stays in the roll and keep the roll tight until you reach the end – you can dab a little milk along the last edge so that the roll sticks to itself whilst cutting.
Once you have a log formed – begin to slice 2 cm portions and pop on the tray
Top with a little additional grated cheese
Cook for 18 minutes or until golden brown
Remove from oven, serve warm or cold. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.

Quick Tip: Before slicing the pizza rolls, you can refrigerate it to make it easier to cut.
