Vegan Hawaiian Jackfruit Pizza
Hello & Happy Monday!!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been a fan of Hawaiian pizza! For whatever reason, the flavor combo just seemed so obscure to me and just didn’t mesh well.
However, looking back, ham always creeped me out and you’re typically experiencing this classic combo from your local pizzeria, which has the most pedestrian quality pizza around lol. (true story)
Fast forward to today, I was brain storming for fresh fun summer eats that incorporate jackfruit. I procrastinated for the longest time to finally work with jackfruit. It can be annoying to get your hands on some and also pricey, but it is so much fun to play around with!
What I did notice while breaking into the world of jackfruit is that its typically only used in the standard sandwich or taco concept, which makes no sense! Although I never really consumed pork, there are tons or recipes that incorporate it.
and the vegan Hawaiian Jackfruit Pizza was born!!
What I love about this pizza is that it’s effortless, modernized, packs tons of flavor with the addition of cilantro, a bit of heat with the jalapeño, a hint of sweet with the pineapple and is the perfect summer vegan eats!
