Recipe: SPizza

The favorite meat of the state of Hawai’i is Spam. It has been well documented the many inventive ways the island state incorporates this World War II surplus into its cuisine, everything from Spam poi to sweet and sour Spam. Well, the South loves its Spam as well and especially with BBQ sauce. So here’s one I came up with this weekend.

1 ready made 12” pizza crust (or use your favorite pizza dough)
1/2 cup of a sweet BBQ sauce
1/4 cup onion, diced
2 ounces smoked cheddar cheese, grated
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 can of Spam, 1/2“dice
BBQ dry rub
Olive oil

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees (or follow directions on package). In a skillet sauté the spam until slightly brown. Spread the BBQ sauce across the pizza crust leaving a small border. In order scatter 2 ounces of the sharp cheddar cheese, onions, diced spam, smoked cheddar, and finely the remaining sharp cheddar. Bake 7 to 12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is toasty. Remove to a cutting board and with a basting brush apply the olive oil to the edges of the crust. Sprinkle the entire pizza with dry rub especially the oiled edges. Slice and serve.
