Quick Super Thin Crust BBQ Pineapple Pizza

Updated on January 1, 2015

It's pretty hard to find someone that doesn't like pizza... And who doesn't like pizza fresh and ready to eat in 20 minutes?!

OK, so we're cheating the system here. It isn't exactly a pizza in the "traditional" sense. But, considering the size of the serving, the carb count is pretty low.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: One Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 large Mission flour tortilla
  • 1 tbsp Bullseye Original BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cup (2 oz) Tillamook Colby Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place one tortilla on pizza pan (baking sheet works just as well). It isn't necessary to oil or otherwise "treat" the pan. You're welcome to cover the surface with foil for easier clean-up, if you like .
  3. Apply 1 tbsp BBQ sauce to tortilla, spreading from the center to the edges. Cover tortilla with sauce as evenly as possible. Try to spread the sauce as far to the edges as you can while leaving a reasonable amount of crust for handling the finished pizza.
  4. Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese over sauce, distributing evenly.
  5. Add pineapple over cheese, also distributing evenly. Try not to overload the center, as it will remain rather soft when baking. Not much worse than an unevenly cooked pizza, is there?
  6. Apply second 1/2 cup shredded cheese over pineapple. This layer will be the first to melt when baking, giving the pineapple a nice cheesy appearance.
  7. Bake on middle oven rack at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. The edges should turn a light brown color as the "crust" crisps up. You may bake for 12 minutes if you prefer your pizza to be a bit crunchy.
  8. Remove from oven, let rest for a minute or two on a cutting board.
  9. Quarter and serve. :)

Cutting Pineapple

A single "round" of fresh pineapple - roughly 3 1/2" in diameter, about 1/2" thick - equates to 1/2 cup when diced.  Split as shown, discard center, dice as you please.

Diced pineapple for this recipe should be about 1/4" to 1/2" on each side.  Honestly, this isn't an exact science.  Just cut it up so it cooks evenly.  Big pieces don't work well.

      Nice one Eddie! I'll add some peperoni to mine, although I know that will sending the calorie and fat content shooting up. Good recipe. Thanks for sharing. Matt

      Thanks, Matt! I plan to expand a little with more ingredients... maybe turkey will be a bit more forgiving. ;)
