Great combination of flavours
Once a year, canned pineapple goes on sale in my local store, here. Last year I bought some fifty cans or so, and I’ve just used the last one today. I’m sure you’re wondering what in the world I did with fifty cans of pineapple tidbits. First of all, I made several of this easy to make Date and Pineapple Loaf. My Kids love it. Then I made several of this Pineapple Banana Loaf. During summer, we drank lots of pineapple smoothies. My most favourite was the Blueberry Pineapple smoothie.
We also make homemade pizza at least once a week, sometimes, twice. Our most favourite is the Thai Chicken Pizza, but we also love this Bacon Pineapple and Sausage pizza. We made it twice last week. So you see, fifty cans of pineapple tidbits is a drop in the ocean. This pizza tastes really nice. I’m glad I finally managed to take photos and post it.
Slice and enjoy…
We demolished it in less than ten minutes!
