What’s in a name?

If you’re not comfortable calling something containing pineapple and ham a pizza (and believe me, there are plenty of people who aren’t), then let’s just lovingly refer to this as a savory Hawaiian skillet pie!

Anything that gets you to try this recipe (no matter what it’s called) is good in my book!!

How long will this double-crusted pizza take from start to finish?

Since it’s a yeast dough crust, there will be two proving times; the first one is for 60 minutes, and the second one is for 20 minutes.

Combine that, along with the actual hands-on prep time of about 15 minutes, along with the bake time of approximately 45 minutes; this recipe will take about 2 hours and 20 minutes from start to dinner, so please plan accordingly.

Additional add-in cautions and suggestions:

You can go wild with this part if you like.

Just remember that the more fillings you add, the longer the bake time for your double-crust Hawaiian pizza will be.

Another important thing to remember when adding additional ingredients (like meat) is that they need to be fully pre-cooked before adding them to the filling.

  • shredded pre-cooked chicken
  • shredded pre-cooked pork
  • pre-cooked bacon
  • pre-cooked ground beef or turkey
  • green onions
  • red bell peppers
  • green bell peppers
  • chopped broccoli
  • mango chunks (why not?)
  • blueberries
  • red pepper flakes
  • caramelized onions
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • shredded pepper jack cheese

You get the idea.

What will you add to YOUR sweet and savory Hawaiian Skillet Pie?

Can this pizza dough be made in advance and refrigerated?

Yes!

Feel free to make this dough (to the first rise time) up to 5 days in advance, and keep it well covered in the refrigerator.

Allow the dough to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes after refrigeration before dividing it in half and continuing with the recipe.

Can this pizza be frozen after baking?

Sure thing!

Once fully cooled, pop the pizza out of the skillet, and wrap it well in several layers of plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.

The step-by-step photo instructions for making the dough:

  • In a large bowl, combine 1½ cups all-purpose flour, active dry yeast, salt, and dry ginger. Whisk to combine.
  • In a measuring cup combine water and pineapple juice and heat in a microwave until warm (110-115 degrees on an instant-read thermometer).
  • Pour the water/pineapple juice into the flour mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Add the additional flour to the bowl and stir to form a soft dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and hand-knead in additional flour (for 5-7 minutes) until the dough is no longer sticky.
  • Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, and cover with plastic wrap to rise in a warm draft-free place until doubled (approximately 60 minutes).

The step-by-step photo instructions for making the double crust Hawaiian pizza:

  • Oil the bottom of a large skillet and sprinkle with cornmeal.
  • Dived the risen dough into two pieces, with the bottom dough being slightly more than the top dough.
  • Press the larger of the two doughs into the skillet, covering the entire surface.
  • Top the dough with your choice of prepared BBQ sauce, chopped ham, pineapple, red onion, and shredded mozzarella cheese, making sure to leave a ½” border around the circumference of the dough.
  • Roll or press the second dough out to a 12″ round disc, and gently place the top dough over the pizza fillings in the skillet.
  • Cut a small vent hole in the center of the top dough and firmly press the top and bottom dough together to seal (I used the back of a measuring spoon).
  • Beat one egg and gently brush over the entire surface of the top dough.
  • Allow the pizza to sit and rest for 20 minutes before baking.
  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Bake the Hawaiian stuffed pizza in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the crust is puffed and a deep golden brown.
  • Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
