Sweet and Sour

It is a sweet and sour day.

It is sweet because it was my last day at work for the week and I look forward to a nice, long three day weekend.

It is sour because New York City has yet another snow storm and tomorrow I am supposed to spend the day with my nephew and now I am worried we will all be snowed in. It is also sour because the snow made me miss a Peking Duck dinner tonight with my team from work! I came home in the slushy mix of weather cranky and upset, too tired to cook but not wanting take out.

So, sweet and sour is the inspiration for this recipe. I absolutely love Hawaiian Pizza and decided to try my own twist on the recipe tonight! Success, indeed, though next time I will add less sweet and sour sauce...a little goes a long way and I used a cup and would halve it...but it was absolutely a sweet dinner for such a sour evening!

Hawaiian Pizza
1 premade pizza dough crust (I used Boboli thin crust)
1/2 cup of Sweet and Sour Sauce (I used World Harbors)
4 slices of deli ham, torn into bite sized pieces
1/3 cup sweet corn kernels
1/3 cup diced pineapple
1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese
2 stems of diced green onion, white and green parts only

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Place pizza dough crust on a pizza pan. Spread sweet and sour sauce with the back of the spoon all over the crust. Top with ham, corn, pineapple, cheese, and onion.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
