1 pizza crust, store bought or home made
8 oz. package of tempeh, sliced thinly crosswise
Extra virgin olive oil
About 1/2-3/4 c. barbecue sauce, separated, store bought or home made
Pickled jalapenos, as many as you want
About 3/4 -1 c. grated vegan cheese (I like Daiya brand best)
1/2 a small red onion, thinly sliced
1) Preheat the oven according to the directions for the crust you are using. Spread a thin layer of barbecue sauce on the crust and thinly slice the tempeh.
2) Preheat a little olive oil in a saute pan and brown the tempeh on both sides. This will take about 5 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the second side.
3) Once the tempeh is done let it cool for a few minutes and then toss it in a little barbecue sauce to coat.
4) Add the tempeh to the pizza and place it evenly over the crust. Add the jalapenos evenly over the tempeh.
