This vegan gluten free Chipotle Pizza with Pineapple and Onion is sweet and spicy. The homemade pizza crust takes less than 15 minutes to make, so this pizza recipe is perfect for a weeknight!
Pineapple and onion pizza is my favorite go-to pizza, so I thought I would turn it into my favorite flavor combination – sweet and spicy. This pizza is sweet, spicy, and smoky.
If you’ve never had chipotle in adobo sauce, they are smoked jalapeños in a spiced tomato sauce. Chipotle peppers are hotter than jalapeños because they are from fully-ripened jalapeños. As chiles ripen, the capsaicin (which cause their heat) increases. Chipotle peppers have a smoky taste.
I have been using them ever since moving to Tucson, about 18 years ago. Authentic Mexican cuisine is everywhere and it has influenced my cooking in a big way.
Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
This is one of the easiest pizza recipes that you can make. You just mix chipotle in adobo sauce with some marinara sauce to spread on pizza crust, and top it with chopped pineapple and onion.
I used an easy vegan gluten free pizza crust, which literally takes minutes to make, with no waiting time for it to rise.
There are times when I am feeling lazy and don’t feel like cooking, and I have a frozen pizza for dinner. Usually that happens on a Sunday, when I am tired from working all week. I call it my “day off”, but really I don’t take full days off. Having your own business (yes, a blog is a business) is incredibly time consuming.
I am always doing doing something for the blog on my day off. Even though I gravitate towards a frozen pizza or something easy on those days, it is never as satisfying as I imagine it to be.
So this recipe rectifies that. The dough takes minutes to make and the pizza is done in about 30 minutes total. I think I can handle that even on lazy days.
I like to make pizzas with brown rice tortillas too. I just need to buy them from Trader Joe’s, which sells them on the shelf instead of in the freezer section. One of the recent batches that I bought frozen were all crumbly when I opened them. Most of them weren’t usable.
Why does it always seem like the days that I don’t feel like cooking are the days that there is nothing to eat! Those are the days when all the leftovers are gone, and there is nothing in the pantry or freezer that can be heated up in minutes.
It’s not like I haven’t created a bunch of easy go-to recipes for the blog. They taste better than any frozen or canned meal, that’s for sure. I just need to remember to put them on my grocery list and keep those ingredients stocked. Silly girl.This vegan gluten free Chipotle Pizza with Pineapple and Onion is sweet and spicy.
