Simple Hawaiin Doughnut Pizza Recipe

I saw a pizza star recipe idea on Facebook last week and immediately wanted to try it out! So I've put my own twist on this method and turned it into a Hawaiian pizza doughnut delight! This recipe is a perfect fit for the Fire & Smoke Flame Grilled Ham, which adds a lovely smoked flavour to the pizza! Read on for the straightforward recipe and process...

What you'll need: 

For the dough: 
375g (13 oz) plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon caster sugar
7g (1/4 oz) dried active baking yeast
2 tablespoons olive oil
225ml (8 fl oz) warm water (45 C)

For the fresh tomato base:
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes 
1 handful of basil leaves
3 tablespoons of tomato puree/paste
1 teaspoon oregano
1 garlic clover
A pinch of salt
A dash of pepper
A splash of olive oil 

For the topping:
300g Medium cheddar cheese
1/2 can of pineapple slices/pieces
75g mushrooms
Fresh basil leaves

Method:

In a large bowl, mix in the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast.
Add the oil and warm water. 
Mix until a springy ball and then roll out on a dusted (with flour) surface. (No need to wait for the dough to rise with this recipe)
Once rolled out into a circle shape, mark a star shape in the centre with a pizza cutter (pictured above)
Add the tomato base (recipe below) leaving a gap between the edges and the star shape.
Add some basil leaves to bring out the flavour of the tomato base.
Add a layer of grated cheese.
Add some pineapple chunks.
Add the chopped mushrooms.
Add the Fire & Smoke ham.
Use the points of the star and bring them inwards, over the toppings, join them to the edge of the pizza (pictured below)
Once all points of the star are joined up to the outside of the pizza you should have a sort-of doughnut shaped pizza ready to bake!
Place it in your pre-heated over for 20-25 minutes at 190C/Gas Mark 5.

Tomato base:
Add all ingredients into a bowl and blend with a blender, or if you don't have a blender just crush the tomatoes and garlic and mix as smooth as possible in a bowl.
Creating a doughnut style pizza means that the pizza base is hard on the outside but doughy on the inside, mixed with the cheese and you've got yourself a heavenly combination of gooey goodness! The slow cooked fire grilled ham from Fire & Smoke adds a delicious full flavour and because they are nice thick slices, it doesn't lack on texture either which compliments the cheese and dough perfectly! The pineapples are bitesize pieces of juicy sweetness, and the mushrooms make it that slightly bit more filling (not that you'll be feeling hungry after this pizza...!)

Let me know if you give this recipe a go!
