This Pepperoni, Pineapple, and Jalapeno Pizzas will quickly become your favorite pizza combo and with under 300 calories for a whole pizza, it's a guilt-free meal that tastes indulgent. Pizza lovers should also try these Zucchini Pizza Boats and Eggplant Pizza Bites.

There are no words for how delicious these pizzas are. The combination of savory from the pepperoni, sweet from the pineapple, and spicy from the jalapeno is magic. As someone who normally prefers a straight cheese pizza, I was shocked at how much I loved this combo.

Lately, I just haven't had any energy to cook a big dinner. I blame it on the fact that it is HOT outside and we don't have air conditioning. Anything that will take more than 15-20 minutes seems like a daunting task and we have been living on quick and easy recipes. And since we all love pizza, it has been on repeat lately with a big salad. Usually, I like to make a pizza bar where everyone can make their own. I spread out a bunch of toppings and everyone builds their own pizza. And this delicious combination came out of that. What originally was going to be a Hawaiian pizza, except we ran out of ham, turned into this amazing combo. Seriously - it's so good, you need to make it as soon as possible.

Why Pepperoni and Pineapple Pizza Works?

I was shocked to hear about how many people questioned the decision to put pineapple and pepperoni together when I first made this pizza. It's not a far cry from a standard Hawaiian pizza with ham and pineapple, but pepperoni brings so much more flavor. It's saltier and spicier and really balances out the sweetness of the pineapple. Honestly, sometimes I feel like ham is a little too sweet, so this is a better combo in my own opinion.

And then adding the jalapeno, it's even better! Sweet, spicy, salty, savory. So so good.

Tips for Making Pepperoni, Pineapple, and Jalapeno Pizza

  • Usually, I use a flatbread or low carb wrap for the crust to keep the pizza light, but any pizza dough would work. You could make your own or use a store-bought pizza dough if you prefer a thicker crust.
  • When it comes to pepperoni, you have three choices for this pizza - traditional pork pepperoni, turkey pepperoni, or vegetarian pepperoni. The turkey and vegetarian pepperoni are lighter options and you would be surprised at how delicious the vegetarian version can be.
  • If you can't handle spice, replace the jalapeno peppers with thinly sliced green bell peppers. They will add a nice crunch and earthy element to the pizza but will keep things tame when it comes to heat. You can always sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top if you find you want a little bit.
  • My preference for this pizza is fresh pineapple since it has more texture than the canned variety. However it will work with canned pineapple as well, just make sure to remove any excess moisture so that the pizza doesn't get soggy. This is especially important with a flat bread or low carb wrap.

Looking for more pizza recipes?

Here are some of the products and tools I used to make this recipe:

  • When it comes to low carb wraps and flatbreads, Flatout Flatbreads are definitely my favorite for a healthier option. Most of their wraps and flatbreads have between 90-130 calories (2-4 SP) and they taste great.
  • Lately, I have been obsessed with these Sweet and Spicy Pickled Jalapenos from Trader Joe's and they taste amazing on this pizza.
  • If you don't like to place the pizza directly on the oven rack, then I recommend using a pizza stone to ensure a crispy crust. They truly make a difference when cooking a pizza and work in the oven or on the grill. If you are using traditional pizza dough, this will help you make a restaurant quality crust.
