Tempeh is browned and seasoned spicy before being paired with red onion to top a hot sauce covered crust. Blue cheese’s pungent flavor bounces off the spicy crust, but is mellowed when blended with mozzarella. This recipe comes to us from Jamie of A Healthy JD.
- pizza dough, rolled out on a floured surface
- 1 low fat premade pizza crust, thawed
- a little canola oil, for preparing the tempeh
- 1 8 ounce package tempeh, diced bite size
- 6 tablespoons hot sauce, divided
- 1/4 red onion, diced
- 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
- 1/2 cup part skim mozzarella, shredded
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, or the temperature instructed on the pizza dough package. Prepare a skillet with a light coating of canola oil.
Place the prepared skillet over medium-high heat and ad the tempeh. Sauté for 5 minutes on each side, or until the tempeh has browned on all sides. A minute or so before the tempeh has finished browning, douse it with about 2 tablespoons of the hot sauce until the tempeh is fully coated.
Brush your crust with a little canola oil. Spread the remaining 4 tablespoons hot sauce over the prepared pizza crust, leaving room on the edges for the crust.
Place the browned tempeh and diced red onions on top of the hot sauce coated crust. Sprinkle the blue cheese and mozzarella over the tempeh and onions.
Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, or according to package instructions, until the crust is golden brown and enjoy!
