hawaiian pizza style nachos

Hawaiian Pizza Style Nachos

(Trigger Warning) This is a recipe for nachos as if they were hawaiian pizza!
Prep Time 8 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 12 ounces of tortilla chips
  • 1/3 cup ham slices
  • 1 cup tomato sauce (or specialty pizza sauce) optional, spread underneath or into base layer of chips
  • 1/2 cup red onion sliced in large pieces
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese or mozzarella or whatever you prefer
  • 1/2 cup canned pineapple diced, if it isn't already
  • 1 jalapeno sliced {optional}


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Scatter chips in a single layer over aluminum foil coated baking pan/sheet and sprinkle thin layer of cheese over chips. Optionally, add pizza sauce (tomato sauce w/ spices)
  • Add ham, red onion, jalapeno and pineapple over chips. Add more cheese for good measure if you're not as lactose intolerant as me.
  • Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cheese melts.
  • Serve with napkins, and photograph the dish! Post on Facebook for an inevitable argument in the comments section with someone you hardly know who despises pineapple for some odd reason.
