BBQ Pineapple Pizza

This is such a yummy vegan pizza! It does take a bit of work – so plan ahead! Next time I might grill the tofu then brush with BBQ sauce.

  • 14 oz tofu, drained and patted dry, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 c BBQ Sauce
  • Olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced thin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pizza dough
  • 1 c diced pineapple
  • Jalapeño slices
  • Vegan mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 c cilantro, chopped

Preheat oven to 325. Toss tofu with 1 c BBQ sauce and bake for 45 minutes, tossing a couple times.

Turn up oven to 450.

In a large skillet heat 2 tbsp olive oil, add onions and cook over medium heat and cook until caramelized. Set aside.

Roll out dough. Top with BBQ sauce, pineapple, onions, pineapple, jalapeños and cheese.

Bake 15 – 20 minutes until crust is crispy and cheese is melted.

Serves 4.
