Home-made pizza has become almost a weekly dinner staple in our house. It's cheap, quick, easy to make, and tastes so good! Plus, the variations are endless. I can't remember the last time we ordered a pizza. Although I've eaten variatons on "Hawaiian" pizza I had never made it before. My kids love ham and pineapple so I thought it would be a winner. It pretty much was, although we discovered that our daughter who loves pineapple, does not like it warm, on her pizza. My son really liked it. I ended up making two pizzas, one for the adults with the crushed red pepper, and one for the kids without.
