sauce for ham/pineapple pie ??
« on: March 21, 2007, 11:48:01 AM »
Hi,
been trying some newer ideas after a long winter of eating pizza every week.
Last week did a chicken on the BGE and made a bbq chix pie, quite good!

I want to try a ham and pineapple, does anyone have a recommendation for a sauce?

I was going to try to make a sweeter sauce using a tomato base and some pineapple juice in the sauce.  but rather than experiment if anyone has an idea to recommend why not start there!

thanks a lot ~~ !

Hi,

I think adding pineapple juice to the sauce will make for more problems, - it may just separate on you,
but you could try it and find out.

As for sweetness, just add a bit more sugar to your sauce.

I've made plenty of pineapple and ham pizzas, and honestly, I've used just my plain old pizza sauce, and it's tasted
very very good.

I drain off all the pineapple juice from the can, and then sprinkle on the chunks moments before the pizza goes into the
oven.  I've found that if I don't drain the pineapple very well, it make the pizza very runny, and my kids didn't like it,
nor did I.

Any way you make this pizza, it's going to be "hamn" good !  :-D  :D

My husband won't eat tomato sauces... and just to get him to eat pizza at all for him I've been experimenting with ham & pineapple.  Recently I tried a mustard based sauce and he liked it.

I'd stay away from sweet for the fact that the ham itself is sweet, and god knows the pineapple certainly is. Try going with "hot". Add red pepper flakes to your fav pizza sauce, black pepper, etc.
Or mix 1 can tomato puree or crushed,with a bottle of "Tiger Sauce"(http://www.redbagcollection.com/tigersauce.html), which I particularly like with seafood like shrimp on the pie.

BBQ Pizza Sauce for Ham & Pineapple pizza:

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to add the
recipe for the sauce I use on Ham & Pineapple pizza. I go with
a BBQ flavored theme.

BBQ Pizza Sauce for Ham & Pineapple pizza

1 (26 oz) can Hunt's Garlic & Herb Pasta Sauce
1/2 cup Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce
1/2 teaspoon Hickory Flavor Liquid Smoke, Wright's or Colgin brand
1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt

Mix ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally,for 20 minutes until the sauce is thickended.
