Unexpected Hawaiian Pizza Topping of the Day: Cinnamon

Our favorite pizza place in San Diego had some delicious pizza flavors. In addition to their sumptuous Thai Chicken and Barbecue Chicken pizzas (you really should click those links there), they make a mean Hawaiian.  Last night as I was sprinkling cinnamon over our homemade Hawaiian pizza, I realized I’ve never written a post about Leucadia Pizzeria’s not-so-secret-secret ingredient.

That’s right, that brown stuff sprinkled over the cheese?  Cinnamon.  Trust me, it is delicious.  Sprinkle a bit  over your next Hawaiian pizza and you will be thanking me.

Quick note: I’m going nuts. The battery on my good camera died and my charger has gone AWOL. I’m stuck with my point-and-shoot.  I’m doing my best to make the pictures look good, which is HARD.  For example, yesterday’s photo of bagged chicken left much to be desired.  Granted, it’s a picture of raw chicken, so how good could it be? Oh, with my Canon Rebel and the 50 mm lens, I can make anything look beautiful.  BOTTOM LINE: I’m desperately searching for my battery charger.  Everyone cross your fingers it magically reappears. Until then, if anyone has a Canon Rebel XT battery charger lying around that you want to give away for a good cause (that cause would be pretty pictures of food for you to look at), I’ll pay shipping and give you my secret hot fudge recipe. 😉


  1. What is it with chargers, we can’t find our video camera chargers, and the camera hotwire to computer is MIA.

    By the way, my husband’s favorite pizza is pepperoni and pineapple, his brother was the original “inventor” in case you ever want to try that. Not sure how it would be with cinnamon, which sounds yummy.

    Have you been to Pizza Port in SD – awesome pizza and beer.

    I lose my cell phone charger alll the time. I think it’s the same person/thing/whatever that steals socks 🙂

    I just tried this, and I gotta say I’m just not a fan. But I was thinking that a close relative, nutmeg, wouldn’t be a bad thing to try. If you’re like me and find that cinnamon is too strong, try just a dash or two of nutmeg to toss with the cheese separately. It add’s just a bit of depth to the flavor.

      sorry you’re not a big fan of the cinnamon…it’s funny, just the other day I was eating some hawaiian pizza wishing it had some cinnamon 🙂 it’s definitely a preference thing!

      I like the nutmeg suggestion – good idea!
