As I mentioned earlier, I have an aversion reaction to the enzymes in fresh pineapple. Namely, I feel a burning sensation in my mouth and my lips swell. Not pretty.
But when cooked, I have no reaction (unless I chow down an indecent amount of pineapple).
So, when working with pineapple, I used to use the outer sides of the pineapple (less enzymes are concentrated here) or cook.
To start the unofficial start of the summer, I post a recipe for Hawaiian Pizza. But instead of taking the lead with pineapple, I am using the (cooked) pineapple crust!
