  • ¼ teaspoon dry yeast
  • ½ cup lukewarm water
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz chunked pineapple, drained
  • 3 tablespoons tomato or pizza sauce
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices vegetarian bacon or ham
  • A few sprinkles of cornmeal


  1. Mix together the yeast and lukewarm water. Let the yeast foam up for about 8 minutes. Put in the flour and salt in with the yeast-water mixture and stir. You want to get the dough to a smooth, not sticky, phase and then turn it out on a lightly floured surface. Knead it with your hands for 5-10 minutes and then oil a bowl lightly. 

  2. Put the dough ball in the bowl and cover it. Set it in a warm location and let it rise until it's twice the size it was originally. Punch it down once and then knead it for a minute. Roll it out on a lightly floured surface when you are ready to prepare the pizza.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400 – 450 degrees Fahrenheit. You want to make sure your oven is really hot to cook the pizza well. Cook the vegetarian bacon or ham according to the instructions on the packet. Set it aside to cool – you will need to cut it into chunks once it is cooked.

  4. After you have rolled out the pizza dough, sprinkle cornmeal on the pizza pan or pizza stone, and transfer the dough to it. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the dough. Be careful not to use too much or you will risk getting a soggy pizza.

  5. Layer the mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce and sprinkle the onion slices on top of that. Next, put on the pineapple chunks and the fake bacon on top of everything. 

  6. Cook it in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling and has turned a golden color as well.

Most of us know the regular Hawaiian pizza – a pizza with pineapple, ham, and cheese – but not many of us know about how to make a vegetarian version of it. Why should vegetarians miss out on all the Hawaiian pizza fun?! They do not have to now! If you love the classic Hawaiian pizza, but want to know how to make a vegetarian version, keep reading.

You can make a Hawaiian pizza vegetarian by taking out the ham and substituting something else for it. Nowadays you can easily find vegetarian ham or bacon in your local grocery store to substitute normal ham or bacon for this pizza. You may be able to make a bacon-like substitute with tofu and seasonings as well. Everything else will be the same – if you wanted to do a vegan Hawaiian pizza, you would need to get vegan cheese as well. So without further ado, here's the recipe for vegetarian Hawaiian pizza for you.

It is obviously an incredibly versatile food, so you have plenty of freedom to choose your toppings, cheese, and sauce.

Meat lovers will love a barbecue chicken pie with cheddar cheese instead of the traditional mozzarella. For a unique vegetarian pie, try adding zucchini, eggplant, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, and olive oil.
