I need to find a cheesecake recipe that has a pineapple layer between the cheesecake filling and the graham cracker crumb bottom.

I found this in a search for pineapple cheesecake, which sounds like what you were originally asking about a cheesecake with a layer of pineapple b/t the cream cheese and the crust. Hope this helps.
Pineapple Cheesecake Recipe
Mix 1 cup sugar with 2 cans crushed pineapple in heavy syrup in a pot. Heat with 3 tablespoons cornstarch. Bring to a boil, stirring until thickened. Turn off and remove from heat while mixing cream cheese mixture.
Mix 2-8oz bars cream cheese, 1 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons salt. Mix in 4 eggs and stir well. Add 1 cup milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla.
Spread pineapple mixture into a pie shell lined 13X9 pan. Pour cream cheese mixture on top of that. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Bake in preheated oven at 400°F for 10 minutes, then turn down to 325 degrees for 50 minutes more.

Years ago, I had written and made many times a recipe for a "Pineapple Cheesecake", the recipe came from a bag of Gold Medal Flour. The base of the cake was actually a cake batter made from scratch with the chunks of pineapples placed into the batter, it used cream cheese with some of the pineapple juice.
