For the Pizza:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 20-ounce can jackfruit (preferably in water), rinsed then chopped into smaller pieces
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 small naan bread (or half of larger naan breads, gluten-free if needed)
  • 3/4 cup vegan mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 small bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/3 cup pineapple chunks (thawed if frozen)

For the BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce (preferably less than 10 grams sugar per serving)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease the pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium pan, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add the jackfruit and saute for 3 minutes or until it begins to soften. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Stir in the tomato paste and BBQ sauce. Saute for additional 3 minutes to coat the jackfruit. Turn off the heat.
  3. Place the naan breads on the baking sheet. Layer evenly with the cheese then distribute the jackfruit, pineapple, and pepper for toppings.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  5. Drizzle with additional BBQ sauce, optional.
