As the person who invented this pizza back in 1999, it is so very cool to see someone liking it enough to make this recipe. Originally I designed it with crumbled Italian sausage, not sliced. Most people preffered it that way, me included, but Boston pizza international had just decided to phase out crumbled sausage when they released the pizza. I also originally designed it with mozzarella cheese on the bottom and the cheddar was placed on top. The cheddar has a slightly different taste when crisping on top, and it helped to keep all the toppings on.and lastly, the chicken breast should be coated in Cajun seasoning ( you can do without of course, but the flavour works so well with everything else, especially the pineapple which tones down and balances all the spicy components.)

A quote that my Dad thought was fitting to both himself and me. <br> <br>A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into any dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don?t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own! <br> <br>My need to experiment and want to cook tasty meals came to me after being diagnosed Celiac in December of 1999. <br>What would I have done without the Zaar? <br> <br>I love to create tasty meals that are either already GF or modify to make them so. I love to make GF meals and desserts that my guests ask are you sure you can eat this? Then I know I have a winner! <br> <br> <br><img src=http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/eageremus.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket></a>
