I’m a huge fan of pizza. In fact, we have a weekly pizza night. It’s something that not only I look forward to, but the kids and of course the Mr too! There are so many amazing options, from classic pepperoni to unusual twists. There’s something for everyone!

With the holidays upon us, I figured, what better way to use up leftover ham than pizza?! A super easy 5-minute dough, topped off with leftover holiday ham, salty bacon, pineapple chunks and three varieties of cheese!

This is the perfect homemade pizza dough for anyone scared of yeast or just new to dough and bread making. It’s truly 5 minutes of hands on time and offers the perfect crisp and chewy texture! Using Fleischmann’s® Pizza Crust Yeast means there is zero proof and rise time! Just mix, shape and stretch! It’s that easy!

Here are my favorite tips for baking with yeast…

Don’t be scared of yeast! It’s really not scary. What’s the worst thing that happens, it doesn’t proof or rise? Start over! No biggie.

When heating water or other liquids, until you’re comfortable, don’t judge by finger temperature alone! Use a thermometer. But my general guideline for the finger test – it should be hotter than room temperature but not so hot it hurts to touch. Most recipes will call for the liquid to be heated to between 115-120°F. So pretty warm, but not painful to touch.

Store your yeast in the refrigerator. Trust me. It will help keep your yeast fresher longer.

Let me show you just how easy this dough is to pull together…

First you’ll need your essential ingredients.

(*See recipe for full details and instructions) After adding yeast and liquid ingredients to the flour mixture, you have a wet and sticky dough. Add additional flour and continue stirring with a spoon or your hands until it firms up.

Transfer to a floured surface and lightly knead, incorporating additional flour until a smooth ball forms! And now it’s ready to stretch and shape into your desired size! Seriously, just 5 minutes! Add your toppings and bake until crisp and golden.

    I recently came across a Hawaiian Pizza recipe that I tried and loved. It starts with all the “normal” stuff, ham and pineapple, but takes it a bit farther with coconut, caramelized onions and slivered almonds. When caramelizing the onions I used some juice from the canned pineapple. I guess if one wanted to go even further they could use Spam instead of ham…Me, I’ll stick the meat from the deli, not from a can!

    Pizza night is the greatest. I love making homemade pizza – although my favourite pizza dough is an overnight rise, and generally I’m not organized enough to remember to make it the day before! I’ll have to look for this yeast so I can have a backup plan, I’ve never heard of pizza dough yeast before!

      A quick last minute dough is always great! You can always prep ahead too and freeze, but that would require remembering to thaw the dough too.

    When we have Hawaiian pizza it means his and her pizza. My husband won’t touch it but it is one of my favorite pizzas. This is mouthwatering.
