The other day, my kids and I didn’t know what we wanted for dinner. I had forgotten to take something out of the freezer so I decided to do a pantry meal. I first created pizza dough from a homemade pizza dough recipe I had from years ago. I looked in the pantry and found canned pineapples and I had bacon and spinach that needed to be used so I decided to make pineapple bacon spinach pizza.
Pizza with Leftover Ingredients
2 Pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
1-2 cup Tomato sauce ( I add more parsley and basil with the jarred tomato sauce)
1/2 – 3/4 cup canned Pineapple chopped
4-6 pieces of cut Bacon chopped (I used low sodium)
1-2 cups of Mexican mix shredded cheese (I used Kraft)
1 cup of baby spinach shredded
1 Tbsp cornmeal for pizza stone or cookie sheet
First pizza dough, place some flour down on a clean surface and roll out the pizza dough. Be sure to get out as many bubbles as possible. Make it any shape you like. Then add the cornmeal to the surface of your baking sheet or pizza peel. This helps the pizza not stick to the baking sheet or stone.
Add a thin layer of tomato sauce to the pizza.
Then add the shredded Mexican mix cheese or whatever shredded cheese you like.
This is pizza #1.
This is pizza #2.
Add the chopped pineapples and chopped bacon. Then add the shredded baby spinach.
If you use a pizza peel, slide the pizza onto the heated stone.
Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until cheese melts and the crust looks golden brown.
Here is the second pizza pulled out of the oven.
This is that pizza cut into squares. I like squares because you can control the portion size better.
Here is a recipe to print:
