Spicy Hawaiian Pizza

This pizza recipe is so simple that it’s not really a recipe so much as it is an idea: put a delicious combination of toppings on a frozen cheese pizza.  Frozen pizza doesn’t have to be sad pizza.

Why you should make custom frozen pizza:

  1. It is way easier and faster than making pizza from scratch.
  2. It’s less expensive and more convenient than buying from a pizzeria or even Papa John’s.
  3. You can use up leftover fresh produce and herbs.
  4. If you find a brand you like, add fresh ingredients then cook it properly, it tastes pretty darn good.

The key is to cook it thoroughly; I would suggest cooking pizza directly on the oven rack so that the crust gets crispy.  I also like broil it for the final few minutes so that the toppings are slightly scorched and have a nice texture.
