A tasty and unique pizza with a BBQ sauce base and topped with BBQ tempeh, pineapple, and caramelized onions. Makes two 12-inch pizzas.
Serves: 4-6
  • 1-8 oz. pkg. tempeh
  • 2 12-inch vegan pizza crusts
  • 1½-2 cups BBQ sauce
  • ¼ cup + 2 tbsp. vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 medium red onions (thinly sliced)
  • 2 tbsp. olive
  • 1½ cups pineapple
  • Vegan shredded cheese (optional)
  1. Caramelize the onions by heating the olive oil, onions, and 2 tbsp. vegetable broth over medium heat. Allow to cook for about 30 minutes, checking frequently and stirring to prevent burning.
  2. Preheat oven according to your crust's directions (usually 425-450 degrees).
  3. While the onions caramelize, slice the tempeh into quarter inch thick strips and then cut the strips into 1-inch long pieces. Add to a second skillet along with the soy sauce, ¼ cup vegetable broth, and ¼ cup BBQ sauce. Turn the heat to medium, cover, and allow to steam until all liquid is absorbed (about 8 minutes). Once, finished, leave covered, and set off to the side.
  4. Cut the pineapple into approximately 1 inch squares, about a ¼ inch thick. Mix in and cook with the onions for the last 5 minutes.
  5. Brush two pizza crusts with olive oil. Spread ¼-1/3 cups BBQ sauce over each pizza.
  6. Distribute the caramelized onions, pineapple, and tempeh evenly over the two pizzas.
  7. Sprinkle the pizzas with shredded vegan cheese if desired.
  8. Cook according to pizza crust directions (usually about 10 minutes).
