I love Hawaiian pizza, so it wasn’t too much of a stretch to put some of the same ingredients on top of a grilled hot dog. Grilled Hawaiian hot dogs are a combination of sweet and heat, my favorite. You don’t need anything else on these. No sauce or anything like that. The juicy pineapple takes care of that.
The grilled vegetables would also be great on a French bread pizza. Add them along with some grilled or smoked ham along with cheese and sauce, and you’ll have a fantastic pizza.
Slicing your hot dogs before cooking helps ensure that the toppings don’t slide off. And that’s a good thing!
Also try my delicious grilled hot dogs with hot Creole blender sauce. They’re different.
