Puffy Pineapple Pizza

Happy Friday!  I know the title sounds weird but for some reason I love a little alliteration to start off a post. I did this for Pork, Peppers and Pasta as well as Top Ten Toast Toppings and it never seems to get old for me. I am easily amused, what can I say?

On to the pizza.  To sum it up in 3 words – it was delicious.  I picked up the fresh dough at my favorite bakery and went from there. I used some homemade tomato sauce and then proceeded to kick it up with some of my favorite pizza toppings.


What do you like on your pizza? In the comments tell me your three favorite toppings on the pizza. I would like to see how the toppings vary amongst the readers.

For me, thick pizza dough is a treat every now and again.  What I like to do is put down a little cornmeal on the work surface and have it work into the dough.  I love it.


  • Wholewheat Dough
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella/Provolone
  • Tomatoes
  • Swiss Pepperoni
  • Pineapple
  • Basil
  • Mushrooms


  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees.
  2. Prep dough using your hands and creating a shape of your choice.
  3. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce.
  4. Sprinkle some cheese.
  5. Add your toppings of choice.
  6. Top with cheese.

  8. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown.

  10. ENJOY!!

Zesty Tip: Using a pizza stone will allow the crust to brown evenly.  I like to preheat the stone in the oven and then slide the pizza on the stone.  I prep the pizza on parchment paper before sliding it onto the stone.

Today is the 3rd last day to enter into the clothing giveaway!  Make sure you get your name in the hat.  I will see you all on Monday with the winner announced and another zesty idea in mind.  Have a great weekend and keep smiling.

Take care
