favourite ever flavour flavour pizza is a tropical one, with pineapple
and ham, and loads of cheese. whenever i eat out at a pizza restaurant
i love eating
them, but this recipe that i make at home is probably just as good! so

(obviosly not just that though!!!)
500g strong white bread flour, plus a little extra for
1 tsp easy-blend yeast
½ teaspoon salt
1 tbsp olive oil
Basic tomato pasta sauce- I
got some in a jar from the
supermarket but you could

A packet of thin ham, just
like the ones you have in a sandwich
A small tin of pineapple chunks

cheese on last to form a protective layer. You may want to sprinkle on a
few herbs at this point.
in the oven for 8-10 minutes until golden and the base is cooked through.
