  • 2 20 oz. cans of jackfruit, packed in brine
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp. hot sauce (like Sriracha)
  • 1 tsp. cumin (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika (optional)
  • salt and peper, to taste (optional)
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup sliced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 pizza crust (Whole Foods Market and other health food stores may carry ready-to-buy vegan dough and/or pie crusts)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Thoroughly rinse jackfruit (in a colander), use a fork to tear into shreds. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine BBQ sauce, hot sauce, tomato paste, cumin, paprika, and salt and pepper. Mix and then set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in frying pan over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add onions and garlic, saute until translucent.
  5. Add the jackfruit and saute until most of the liquid from jackfruit is gone. Mix in prepared sauce mixture, lower heat to medium-low, cover and let cook for about 10-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mix in sun-dried tomatoes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Place pizza dough on prepared pan and spread jackfruit mixture out evenly. Top with pineapple chunks and bake for 10-15 minutes until crust turns golden. Remove, top with sliced red onions, and serve.
