BBQ Jackfruit 2

Makes: 2 medium pizzas or one large pizza.

Ingredients:

Crust:
Pizza Sauce:  
  • ½ cup of barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of basil
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of melted vegan margarine
Smoky Barbecue Jackfruit: 
  • ½ cup of barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon of chilli
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 can of jackfruit in water or brine
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
Other:

Method:

  1. Make the gluten-free & vegan pizza crust as per the instructions in the recipe.
  2. While the crust is pre-cooking, make the pizza sauce by combining all sauce ingredients in a bowl, set aside.
  3. Next, rinse & drain canned jackfruit. 'Shred' the jackfruit by pulling the stringy parts away from the core (the triangular part) and set them aside in a bowl. Discard the core & any seeds.
  4. Make the marinade for the jackfruit by combining the minced garlic, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, chilli & salt together in a bowl & mix well. Add the marinade to the shredded jackfruit and stir until all the jackfruit is evenly coated.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan on medium-high heat and fry the jackfruit for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Dice the capsicum and red onion.
  7. Remove the pizza crust after 20 minutes and increase the heat to 210 degrees celsius.
  8. Coat the crust generously with the pizza sauce. Top with jackfruit, vegan cheese, onion & capsicum. Drizzle with vegan garlic aioli.
  9. Bake for an additional 20 - 23 minutes, remove from the oven when the crust is crispy and toppings are hot.
  10. Cool for 5 minutes, then let your taste buds be overwhelmed with crispy, delicious, barbecue-y PERFECTION!
