250g fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, finely chopped
80g shaved ham, finely chopped
1 spring onion (shallot), thinly sliced
1 tbs pizza sauce
80g (3/4 cup) coarsely grated mozzarella

Pizza dough
125ml (1/2 cup) warm water
2 tsp (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
Pinch of caster sugar
250g (12/3 cups) Anchor Lighthouse Bread & Pizza Plain Flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs olive oil

To make pizza dough, combine the water, yeast and sugar in a jug. Stand for 10 minutes or until foamy. Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Stir until a soft dough forms.
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 8-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and set aside to prove for 40 minutes or until the dough doubles in size.
Combine the pineapple, ham and spring onion in a bowl. Season.
Preheat oven to 200C. Punch down dough. Knead until smooth. Roll out to a 42cm x 22cm rectangle. Spread with pizza sauce. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Top with the pineapple mixture, leaving a 2cm border at 1 long side. Starting from the other long side, roll up to form a log. Trim ends. Cut into 24 slices, about 1.5cm thick. Place slices on 2 lined trays, with room for spreading. Insert soaked bamboo skewers into each slice. Spray with oil.
Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 14-15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool slightly.
