Quick & Easy Homemade Tropical Pizza Recipe

Our kitchen is where many memories are made and a lot of family bonding time takes place. We have made it a point to get our kids excited about making their own meals. Some mornings, my seven-year-old son is making his own scrambled eggs while his older brothers are prepping biscuits and gravy.

It is to the point where every time my husband goes to make any meal, he always asks who is going to help. Nine out of 10 times, all three kids run in ready to take on any task he may give them.

One of their favorite things to see on our weekly menu board is DIY pizza night. We let each of the boys make their own pizza, start to finish. When we let them do that, they tend to try new things and be more adventurous with their toppings. Nothing is better than baking from scratch and getting to enjoy the deliciousness.

Homemade pizza includes homemade pizza dough. I know hearing the word ‘homemade’ with ‘dough’ can be intimidating, but let me tell you, it shouldn’t be. With Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast, the pizza only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. Last week, for a fun new adventurous pizza, my youngest made a tropical pizza.

Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.

Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.

**To knead the dough, add just enough flour to the dough and your hands to keep the dough from sticking. Flatten dough and fold it toward you. Using the heels of your hands, push the dough away with a rolling motion. Rotate dough a quarter turn and repeat the “fold, push and turn” steps. Keep kneading dough until it is smooth and elastic. Use a little more flour if dough becomes too sticky, always working the flour into the ball of dough.

Let dough rest for 10 minutes.

While the dough is resting, strain pineapple tidbits over a bowl. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the pineapple juice for the cheese mixture.

To make the cheese mixture; combine shredded cheeses, pineapple juice and dry seasonings. Set aside.

Seeing my son’s face light up when the pizza comes out of the oven is priceless. He loves seeing his creations, getting the first taste, and then offering me a piece.

With Fleischmann’s® 150 years of experience, we can bake quality, yeast recipes we are all proud to share. Because offering what we’ve baked ourselves expresses more than words can say and I love that we are instilling that in our little ones.
