Pizza might just be the greatest food ever created. It’s carbs, sauce and cheese, plus a variety of delicious toppings all combined in one dish!

Starting a pizza recipe with a delicious dough and scrumptious sauce is the key to a great pizza. I love experimenting making different pizza sauces. The Three Cheese Jalapeno Ranch sauce that I created for this Jalapeno Sausage Pizza is an all time favorite. But this Sriracha Pizza Sauce is now tied for first!

Growing up, one of my favorite pizza restaurants in Oklahoma was Hideaway Pizza. I would always order their “Maui Magic”, a pizza topped with pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and Canadian bacon.

This recipe is my adaptation of that delicious pizza! In this version, I added homemade Sriracha pizza sauce and swapped out the Canadian bacon for prosciutto.

The spiciness of the sriracha pizza sauce pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the pineapple and mandarin oranges. If mandarin oranges on a pizza is just too weird for you, they can always be left off. Already have ham at home? Use that in place of the prosciutto.

But for the love of Sriracha, take a little time before preparing the pizza to make this sriracha pizza sauce! The recipe makes enough for 3 pizzas. Save extra sauce in the fridge or freezer to make delicious pizzas over and over!

How to make Sriracha Pizza Sauce

Pour olive oil into a large stock pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add minced garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sriracha and honey. Sprinkle salt, oregano and crushed red pepper into the pot.

Stir all of the ingredients together and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Immediately add the pizza sauce to a pizza recipe. Or store it in sealed containers in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use.

Pizza sauce can be store in the refrigerator for up to one week. It can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

I like to store the sauce in pint size mason jars, which equals two cups of sauce. This is the exact amount needed for a pizza, so you only defrost what you need per pizza.

Now let me be honest with you, two cups makes for a pretty saucy pizza. I LOVE a saucy pizza! If you want to go lighter on the sauce, store the pizza sauce in half pint mason jars. This equals exactly one cup of sauce per jar and is also perfect for making smaller pizzas.

Always make sure when freezing liquids in glass jars to leave 3/4 inch open at the top of the jar. This allows the liquid to expand without breaking the glass.

While this recipe makes the perfect Hawaiian pizza sauce, it’s also great on other types of pizza as well. This is my go-to pizza sauce recipe. I always have it around and use it for homemade pizza all the time with a variety of different toppings!

How to make Hawaiian Pizza

Spread pizza dough out into a circle or rectangle and place on a baking stone or sheet pan. Place in a 425° F preheated oven for 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven. Top the pizza crust with two cups of pizza sauce, mandarin oranges, thinly sliced prosciutto or ham and pineapple. Top with fresh sliced mozzarella cheese and grated parmesan cheese. Place back into the oven to bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

What kind of pizza dough to use for Hawaiian Pizza

I’ve used both homemade pizza dough and store-bought pizza dough to make this recipe. For the homemade pizza dough, I use this Thin Crust Pizza Dough recipe. For store-bought, I buy a refrigerated can of Pillsbury pizza dough.

Why do they call it Hawaiian Pizza?

Hawaiian pizza isn’t actually from Hawaii, it originated in Canada. They called it Hawaiian pizza because of the Hawaiian pineapple being used on the pizza.

Does Hawaiian pizza have pork? 

Yes, Hawaiian pizza is traditionally topped with ham, either cubed or thinly sliced. I topped this pizza recipe with prosciutto, which is Italian ham.

The ham or prosciutto can be left off for a vegetarian pizza.

Can you reheat Hawaiian pizza?

Yes, Hawaiian pizza can be reheated in the microwave. Or for a crispier crust, reheat it under the broiler in the oven on low for 5 minutes.
