That looks great @Captains!   That's a great idea @MaryB should I tape down the parchment so that it doesn't slosh around as I'm rolling?  Baking is so different to cooking, I need to start learning these tricks.
Good luck with your dish. We don't cook men here.

You can try cooking the pineapple before putting it on the pizza.  
Here's my belly as promised
