OMG……I can’t believe we haven’t posted a pizza recipe since April……we are really slipping!
But we’re ……..back ……with a Teriyaki Meatball Pineapple Pizza.
I love , love, love the aidell’s company. They make artisan chicken sausage and meatballs. I spied them a while back on one of my infamous, inspirational, grocery shopping trips. They are available in your local grocery store in the cold meat section….well, at least at my grocery store. If not ask for them….whole new world of taste.
I have wanted to make something with the Teriyaki Pineapple Meatballs for quite some time. Tim and I think that Hawaiian pizzas are the bomb……confession time…we always get them from our favorite pizza place…..Angelo’s. If you are ever in the Sterling, Rock Falls, Dixon, IL area stop in and have a pie….it is the best pizza this side of Chicago!
The Teriyaki Pineapple Meatballs sounded like a Hawaiian pizza to me……my mind runs in mysterious ways. On our Hawaiian pizza ,we normally get Canadian bacon, pineapple, and onion. The sauce is a traditional pizza sauce. Not where I wanted to go with this……teriyaki sauce…yea, but with a little somethin, somethin……bbq sauce, sweet and a little spicy. Perfect base for those slightly sweet meatballs made from juicy chicken and infused with ginger, soy and bits of real pineapple. Maybe a little more Asian than Hawaiian, but I liked the way this was going.
Pineapple…….buy fresh ones, nothing can compare to the taste….enough said!
Red onions….I like their sweet flavor, and even though the red color can be cooked away as fast as this pizza cooks, you still get a hint of that pretty red.
Italian blend cheese…….all pizza needs cheese and an Italian blend has the right flavors for our now global pizza. No matter the taste palate……. its tastes great, like a little trip to ……..somewhere. Use your own imagination!
The big bonus for this pizza is how fast and easy it is. The hardest part is cutting the pineapple, which isn’t really all that hard. A million YouTube videos can help you out.
A pre-made crust…you can always make your own of course. A quick mix for the sauce. Pile the toppings on….a few minutes in a hot oven …….. Teriyaki Meatball Pineapple Pizza!
