For the pizza dough:

  • 1 ¾ to 2 ¼ cups (217g-279g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope (7g) Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • cup (158g) very warm water 120° to 130°F
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) olive oil

For the Hawaiian Pizza:

  • ½ to 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 6 ounces Canadian bacon or ham diced
  • 4 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 8-ounce can pineapple, drained and diced


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Whisk together 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add oil to the water and pour into dry ingredients. Stir until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.
  • Knead dough on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
  • Cover and rest the dough for 10 minutes.
  • Stretch and pat dough with floured hands to fill greased 12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet.
  • Spread with pizza sauce. Top with cheese. Spread Canadian bacon, bacon, and pineapple over the top.
  • Bake on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
  • Cool just a minute or so before slicing and serving.


If you don't have an instant read thermometer, test your water temperature by thinking "hot bathwater".
