How do I make bbq jackfruit pizza?

This pizza is so simple, it doesn’t really need a whole lot of prep work. However, let’s go over some of the ingredients and see what we can swap out for those picky eaters in your life.

  • Flatbread crust – Store bought flatbread crust is being used in this recipe, however, you can use any crust you like! I make this using pita bread, french bread, pizza dough, pretty much anything you like! Just make sure it’s vegan if that is a concern of yours.
  • Sauce? – I did not use any sauce in this recipe, the bbq sauce in the jackfruit is enough to carry through. If you are a sauce lover, please feel free to add some tomato, pizza or bbq sauce to the crust before the toppings.
  • Cheese – You can use store bought or homemade vegan cheese, nutritional yeast or even omit the cheese.
  • BBQ Jackfruit – I use the young jackfruit in brine (canned). For the sauce, I used a sweet and spicy flavor.
  • Pineapple – I know, I know!!! Some people think it’s a sin to put pineapple on pizza, it can be the root of a heated conversation! Personally, I think it’s a great combination of ingredients, but feel free to omit or replace with some sweet peppers.
  • Red Onion Rings – I sliced my onion very thin on a mandolin slicer. You can use any type of onion you’d like, white, red, shallots or even green onion.
  • Pickled Jalapeno – These are not too spicy once they’ve been cooked. You could use fresh jalapeno for a bigger ‘bite’. Peperoncini peppers are another great option.

Description

This quick and delicious BBQ Jackfruit Pizza is sweet and spicy making this savory dish a winner!!! And did I mention jackfruit makes this a vegan’s dream! You will not believe how simple this is to put together, let’s get started:


Scale

Ingredients

  • flatbread pizza crust
  • 120 oz can of young jackfruit in brine- drained and rinsed
  • 8 oz your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 3 to 4 oz shredded vegan cheese
  • 2 oz pineapple chunks, or 2 rings- cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • handful pickled jalapenos, to taste

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 f. 
  2. Heat an oiled skillet over medium heat and add can of jackfruit and heat for 2 minutes.  Take your spatula and ‘break apart’ the jackfruit until it resembles pulled pork.  Add the BBQ sauce and heat for an additional 4 minutes, take off heat.
  3. Place flatbread on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Top with cheese, tablespoon size drops of the bbq jackfruit, pineapple, onion, jalapeno.  I usually top it off with a pinch more of cheese.
  4. Place into oven and bake for 8 minutes, then broil on high for an additional 3 minutes, watching carefully as to not burn the crust.
  5. Let cool, slice and serve!!!

Notes

This will keep in fridge for up to 3 days.  Best re-heated in oven to keep crispy.
