Hawaiian Pizza - Yes, It's AMAZING!

It's pizza and movie night at our house.  I always knew I'd be able to do movies, but I never thought I'd be able to do pizza after surgery.  The trick is finding a whole wheat crust and just eating enough of it to give it that "normal" feel.  We liked Hawaiian Pizza (Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza) before surgery, so this is our version now.

1 whole wheat, pre-made pizza crust (we use Boboli Whole Wheat Pizza Crust)
1/2 - 3/4 cup of tomato sauce
Italian seasoning
4-6 slices of provolone cheese
1 - 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
4-6oz. of thin sliced deli meat ham
4 oz. can of pineapple chunks (in it's own juice - no syrup!)
1 sweet red pepper (cut into chunks)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Take crust out of package and place on pizza baking pan.  Cover crust with sauce and top with 4-6 slices of provolone cheese.  Dab a bit more sauce onto of the slices of provolone and then top with sliced ham, chunks of pineapple, Italian seasoning and sweet red pepper chunks.  Cover the entire pizza with shredded mozzarella.  Bake for 12 minutes and serve while hot.

So good and very economical.  We easily get 2 meals out of this for both of us.  2-3 slices for Ryan per meal and 1/2 or 1 slice for me.

Now it's time for the movie!
