For some reason I was craving BBQ pizza. Sometimes I get weird cravings. So this is what I made! You can make or buy your favorite BBQ sauce. If you like, mix it up and throw some pineapple on top! HMMM
Jackfruit BBQ Pizza
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 can jackfruit in water
3/4 c. BBQ sauce, 1/4 c. reserved
1 pizza crust-partially cooked if completely raw
1/2 c. diced red bell pepper
1/4 c. Daiya mozzarella style shreds (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Light spray a pizza pan or you can use a pizza stone-no spray required. Sprinkle the pan with cornmeal.
-Drain jackfruit. Fill a medium bowl with fresh water. Soak your jackfruit for at least one hour. Drain and squeeze out the remaining water.
-In a medium saucepan with a touch of water, saute your red onion on med-low heat until fully cooked and starting to caramelize. Add a little more water when needed so the onions don't stick to the pan. When finished, put onions in another bowl and set aside.
-In the same saucepan, combine the jackfruit and 1/2 c. BBQ sauce. Heat on medium, shredding the jackfruit with a couple of forks. Easier to shred when heated. Turn heat on low for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Turn off heat.
-Spread the remaining 1/4 c. BBQ sauce over your pizza crust. (may add more sauce if you like) Add the onions and then the shredded jackfruit on top. Top with red bell pepper and sprinkle with Daiya mozzarella shreds if desired.
-Bake for 15 minutes or until your pizza crust is fully baked.
