Base Ingredients

Recommended Toppings

  • ½ block smoked tofu (100 g)
  • ½ medium bell pepper (70 g)
  • ½ small red onion (50 g)
  • 1 cup corn (160 g)
  • 1 Roma tomato , sliced (80 g)
  • Pickled hot peppers (optional)


Step 1: Prepare Ingredients

  • Begin by preparing a batch of avocado sauce, then prepare a batch of BBQ chickpeas.
    1 batch avocado sauce, 1 batch barbecue chickpeas
  • Thinly slice some smoked tofu and cut each slice in half (or smaller if desired).
    ½ block smoked tofu
  • Thinly slice the bell pepper, red onion and tomato.
    ½ medium bell pepper, ½ small red onion, 1 Roma tomato
  • I use frozen corn and defrost it in the microwave (about 2 minutes).
    1 cup corn
  • If using pickled hot peppers, remove them from their jar and place onto paper towel to drain excess liquid.

Step 2: Assemble pizza

  • Cover 2 baking trays with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • Lay pita breads on the baking trays.
    4 medium pita bread
  • Cover the pita bread with a layer of avocado sauce. You can use all the sauce on the base or save some to drizzle on top later.
    1 batch avocado sauce
  • Next, assemble the pizza by adding the prepared toppings. If using smoked tofu, I recommend putting this on first so it doesn’t dry out. It’s also best to put the tomato and pickled hot peppers on top.

Step 3: Bake and Serve

  • Place your pizzas into an oven preheated to 350 °F for 12-15 minutes.
  • Rotate the pans halfway through cooking (move the pan on the higher rack to the lower rack and vice versa.
  • The pizzas are done when your pita bread is crisp. Remove from your oven at this point.
  • As an optional step, drizzle extra avocado or barbecue sauce onto the pizza before serving.
  • Serve using a fork and knife to eat this protein-packed, topping-loaded pizza!
