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.

  • 2 c BBQ Sauce
  • Olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced thin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pizza dough

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.

Taco Pizza

This recipe comes from Eating Well with a few minor tweaks. I found that 1/2 c a water was not adequate to bring the dough together so I added another 1/2 c. I also added a few more ingredients to the vegetarian delight!

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 c masa harina
  • ½ c sliced scallions
  • ½ – 1 c water
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 can black beans, heated and mashed
  • 1 c shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 2 c shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • ¼ c slivered red onion
  • ½ c pico de gallo or fresh salsa
  • 1/4 c crema
  • Sliced olives

Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat eggs in a medium bowl.

Mix in masa, scallions, water, chili powder, garlic powder and salt. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet into a 9-by-11-inch oval. Bake the crust until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Spread beans on the crust and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Top the pizza with romaine, avocado, onion, pico de gallo, olives and cilantro. Drizzle with crema.

Serves 4.
