I Love Pineapple!
and on Pizza!
This is so simple and great fun to make with the children, children enjoy the helping and the eating of the tasty result.
This is a ping back to my childhood when pineapple and cheese on sticks was a must at all picnics and buffets, sometimes made to look like a hedgehog on an upturned grapefruit.
Just like this!

I used bought vegan puff pastry from Lidl, I can’t guarantee that all pastry are vegan so check the label. I bought pineapple rings, I prefer the ones in juice but syrup ones are just as good, then I used Pizza Melty cheese which is my favourite vegan sub, but something with a bit of bite is good, if you eat cheese a mature cheddar would work really well too.
I preheated the oven to 200 degrees and put a little spray oil on it.
I cut in the pastry into squares ( sort of) with kitchen scissors, could be safer than a knife if you are assisting youngsters, that the pineapple ring would fit on and put them on the tray and also sprayed them with a little oil to make the pastry crisp up in the oven.
I drained the pineapple rings and gave them a dab with a piece of kitchen roll so they were not too wet and put them on top of the pastry , then filled the centre with the cheese.
Popped them in the oven till the pastry had risen and was golden brown, I served them with Alpro custard and they were divine!
I hope you find time to make this simple but gorgeous pudding!
Have a wonderful one!
