I may have mentioned a few times in the past that my husband is Portuguese. You know what that means right? he likes sweet rolls. That was all the inspiration I needed to whip up this recipe using King’s Hawaiian Hot Dog rolls and I figured if we were going to use sweet rolls, we were not going to top it with ketchup and mustard.
Therefore, I developed this citrusy and slightly spicy salsa that plays off of the classic Hawaiian pizza recipe (ham, pineapple etc.) and pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the rolls.
Although I am not normally a big hot dog fan, there is something about the summer that makes one crave a hot dog or a hamburger right? Amen!
