Candy Corn Pizza

Thursday, October 9, 2008

Don't panic, there is no candy corn in this pizza. It just looks like a big piece of candy corn when it is cut into slices. This is such a simple recipe and the idea can be applied to many other kinds of pizza, depending on your family's preference. If you wanted a plain cheese pizza your stripes would be cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese covered with marinara sauce (so it looks red), and mozzarella cheese. If you wanted a pepperoni pizza your stripes would be cheddar cheese, pepperoni slices, mozzarella cheese. Well, you get the idea. You can't go wrong with pizza; just make sure the crust is a good one.

Serves: 4
Start to Finish: 30 minutes
Recipe By: Amber Brunson


1 (6-oz) can pineapple tidbits
4 slices of ham, cut-up into 1-in squares
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1 pre-made Boboli pizza, or your favorite pizza crust (I tried a refrigerated crust for the recipe in the pictures, I like Boboli better)


1. Preheat oven to according to pizza crust package directions.
2. Slice ham into 1-inch squares.
3. Spoon marinara sauce evenly across your pizza crust.
4. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese in a circle in the center of the pizza crust. (Make this circle bigger than you would expect.)
5. Add ham squares in a ring on the outside of your mozzarella cheese circle. (You are going to want to layer the ham on pretty thick. It shrinks when cooked which allows the white mozzarella cheese to show through.)
6. Using cheddar cheese, sprinkle a border around the outside of the pizza crust; getting right up to the edge.
7. Add the pineapple tidbits to the top of the Cheddar cheese.
8. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until edge is lightly browned and cheese is melted and bubbling.
9. Cut into slices and serve.
