Spicy Buffalo Tempeh Pizza

I never liked buffalo wings - the bones and the skin and the fat grizzle turned me off even when I was a chicken eater. But I sure do love that spicy, tangy sauce. So why not turn it into a pizza that doesn't have any bones or skin? You could put carrots and celery on this since they usually serve Buffalo wings with sticks of those. Personally, I don't like carrots and celery on pizza so I do red onions and cilantro instead. This is for people who like spicy food.

I was all out of cilantro this time.
1 8 oz. package of tempeh, sliced widthwise into thin strips
Louisiana hot sauce or Tobasco
Vegan cheese (such as Daiya cheddar style)
1/2 a small red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 c. cilantro leaves
1 pizza crust, home made or store bought

1) Heat a little oil in a saute pan and add the tempeh slices. Cook the first side until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Then flip and cook the second side for an additional 3-4 minutes until browned. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a bit. Once it has cooled add several dashes of hot sauce & toss gently to coat but avoid breaking up the tempeh.

2) Spread a thin layer of hot sauce on the crust you are using and then place the coated tempeh on top and spread it out evenly.

3) Add the cheese and then top with the onion slices and bake according to the package directions for the pizza you are using.

4) Once the pizza is finished baking sprinkle the cilantro on top (if desired) and serve.
