I could hardly wait to dig into this mouthwatering pizza. While the base wasn’t as crispy as store-bought pizza—it’s made of bread, after all—the edges and crust were firm enough.

Depending on the depth of your baking tin, the centre of the pizza might be a little soft. I’d recommend baking the pizza base for a few minutes more if you’re using a slightly deeper baking tin.

Texture-wise, I was slightly disappointed that the centre wasn’t as doughy as I thought it would be. It just didn’t hold as much bite. But considering that the pizza base was super easy to make, I suppose I shouldn’t complain.

The toppings were the saving grace; the pineapple chunks caramelised nicely, adding sweetness and a hint of tartness. Add that to the generous portion of ham that I layered on the pizza, and you’ve got the perfect Hawaiian pizza. Lots of cheese and tomato sauce didn’t go amiss, either.

Of course, for those of you who are more creative, you can come up with even more innovative pizza toppings. Curry chicken? Thai basil pork? You can put almost anything on this DIY bread pizza.
