If you had asked me a year ago if I ever thought I’d be big into pizza making, I’d tell you no.

Making homemade pizza has never been my thing or something that interested me.





However, I am now an avid homemade pizza lover and it’s regularly on our menu.

It all started with pesto.

I had purchased a large jar of pesto from a bulk store.

It was getting close to the “use it or lose it” date and I did not want to lose it.





I decided on a whim to make a Pesto Chicken & Spinach Pizza and HOLY COW it was amazing.

So amazing that I made it again the next night and several times since.

However I’ve never photographed it.




I really need to get on that.

However, that one moment of trying to come up with ways to use up pesto is what jump started my love of making homemade pizza.

Since this night we have experimented quite a bit with pizza.

We keep coming up with various combinations that we love.





One of which is this Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Pizza.

No matter how you got to this recipe {search engine, email or social media} you must have clicked on it because you love pineapple on your pizza too.





There is such animosity about pineapple on pizza that I do not understand.

Why can’t we all just accept each others differences and get along?

Why do we have to point out, pick on or ridicule another persons choices just because they are different than our own?





I say we put an end to that nonsense and we start today.

Right here with this pizza that has pineapple on it.

As the Minnesotan’s say, For Pete’s Sake, if you don’t like Pineapple then don’t put it on there.





However, for the record, pineapple belongs on pizza.

I firmly stand behind that statement.

This Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Pizza is a new favorite of ours.





Instead of spaghetti sauce, we use barbecue sauce and add some of our favorite toppings.

Homemade pizza is a quick and easy meal that is often times cheaper {and better} than take out.

We love making it for a weeknight meal as well as when we have friends over for a simple no fuss meal.





It also makes for a great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken OR swap it out for leftover turkey!

Everyone needs a few good recipes on the menu for leftover turkey and this one seems like a no brainier to us!

We love the sweet flavors of the barbecue, pineapple and red onion in this Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Pizza and hope you will too!
