Pineapple, Ham & Basil Pizza

This is an adopted recipe that I found to be an incredible blend of flavors. The basil is so fresh with the sweetness of the pineapple and saltiness of the feta and ham. I used a refrigerated pizza crust, but homemade would just make it better.

Good! Everyone in the family enjoyed this. An interesting and delicious combination of ingredients. There's not enough pineapple to make it too sweet, and I was hesitant about the walnuts but they did add another layer of flavor and an interesting crunchiness. Used Pizza Dough for Thin Crust Pizza. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Absolutely delicious! A very light flavor; I really enjoyed the sweet and salty, and didn't even miss the pizza sauce. I did use shredded real ham (not deli ham). I'll definitely make this again.

Very good! Balanced flavors, a unique pizza that was easy. I did use tomato sauce just because I didn't notice the recipe didn't call for it, and I did not use any olive oil for health purposes.
