  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (398ml) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp tamari sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out pizza dough into a circle with a diameter of about 30 centimeters. Bake for 10 minutes without garnishes.
  2. In the meantime, heat oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic. Sautee for 5 minutes or until the onion has become translucent.
  3. Add tomato sauce, garlic powder, smoked paprika, tamari, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and Manba. Mix to incorporate. Lower to heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, squeeze out the excess liquid from the jackfruit pieces by pressing it into your hands. Remove any tough pieces.
  5. Use your hands to shred the jackfruit into pieces and add it to the simmering sauce. Mix until it is well coated.
  6. Remove the pizza from the oven. Top with the jackfruit mixture, red onions, sautéed mushrooms, cheese and black pepper.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh coriander.
