Canadian Bacon and Pineapple Mini Pizzas

With preshredded cheese, pineapple tidbits, and prepared pizza sauce, the only thing adults need to be responsible for is chopping the bacon. For a pepperoni pizza variation that requires no chopping, use eight ounces pepperoni in place of the Canadian bacon and pineapple.
