Spicy Jackfruit Pizza

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 2nd of January 2024

I like pizza, so I learned how to make a simple base with no oil.  Making the sauce is easy and then all you need to do is add a few toppings and sprinkle with vegan cheddar alternative.

Makes 2 pizzas

Time, 22 minutes


  • 200 g of plain white flour
  • 110 ml of warm water
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp of vegan red pesto 
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste 
  • 1/4 tsp of chipotle chilli paste
  • About 15g of jackfruit per pizza
  • 15 g of grated vegan cheddar alternative per pizza


  • Heat the oven to 180 C fan.
  • Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl with the whisk.
  • Add the water and stir with a wooden spoon until it comes together as a shaggy dough.  If to dry, add more water.  
  • Use your hands to pull it together.  You are looking for something that is soft.  If it is sticky, add a little more flour. Transfer to a work surface.
  • Knead on a surface for 3–4 mins.  Divide in half and roll into 2 balls, then flatten them with your hand and roll out to about 25 cm in diameter.  
  • Carefully fold about a cm over around the edges to make the crust.
  • Mix the red pesto, tomato paste and chipotle chilli paste together to make the sauce. Spread over the pizza while avoiding the crust you just made.
  • Add toppings and bake each on a baking sheet for 15 mins.
