Homemade pizza dough (or use store-bought)

If making your own pizza dough you will follow your own recipe and know how long you have to prepare it. You can also use store-bought dough.
Make sure your oven is preheated at 360°C.
After you have brushed the dough with olive oil and pricked it with a fork, add the toppings. Start with pizza sauce, then the cheese, bacon/ham, pineapple, and oregano. You can adjust the topping quantities, but don’t overfill it, as this can make the pizza soggy. Important: Thoroughly pat dry the pineapples before adding them in order to prevent excess moisture.
Make the melted butter by combining the melted butter with garlic powder, oregano, and salt. Brush the borders with melted garlic butter.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until bubbly and the edges are golden brown. Cut into 8 slices and serve.
