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 and baking the pizzas. For a pepperoni pizza variation that requires no chopping, use 8 ounces miniature pepperoni slices in place of the Canadian bacon and pineapple.

Yield:

6 servings (serving size: 2 pizzas)
