Pizza Dough: The pizza dough linked is the one I love to use, but feel free to use the pizza dough listed in the recipe below, they are similar and both are vegan friendly.

*Disclosure: some links may contain affiliate links. For more information on what this means, visit my disclosure page.

Marinara Sauce: Use as much or as little as you want. I love a saucy pizza, or saucy anything, but I have kids (and a husband) who doesn’t like things too saucy. So be sure to add the amount based on your own preference.

Vegan Mozzarella Cheese: Use the brand you enjoy the most for the top of pizzas. To be completely honest, I usually just grab the ALDI brand as that’s where I get most of my groceries, but it doesn’t melt the best, so what kind you get is up to you. I’d love to know what kind of cheese you like the most for pizza! Feel free to comment it below.

Pineapple: Fresh pineapple is best, or canned pineapple, just be sure to drain and dry it first. Don’t use frozen as too much liquid will release in the oven and might make the pizza soggy, and no one likes soggy pizza!

Jalapeños: These are 100% optional, just be sure to wear gloves when slicing them – having your hands burn for a day or so after chopping jalapenos without gloves is no joke…

I’ll list out the steps for you to make this below, but honestly, it’s as simple as making your pizza dough, adding the toppings, and then baking it.

Step one:  Warm the water and mix with the yeast, allow to sit for 5 minutes, it should start to foam a little.

Step two:  Add in the olive oil, salt, and flour. Stir well, with a spoon or paddle attachment, and then knead, by hand or dough hook, for about 5-10 minutes.

Step three:  Form dough into a ball, cover with a linen, and let sit in a warm place for about an hour to rise.

Step four:  Preheat oven to 450℉.

Step five:  Divide the dough in half and roll one of the balls of dough out to a 10-11 inch round pizza.

Step six: Cook the crust, on parchment paper on a cookie sheet or pizza pan,  in the oven for about 5 minutes, flip, add half of the toppings, then cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is as melted as it will get and the crust is a bit golden.

Step seven: Repeat with the second pizza.

Step eight: Allow to cool slightly, then slice and enjoy!

How to Serve Pineapple Jalapeno Pizza

Serve as you would any pizza, with you favorite drink, or maybe this blackberry lemonade.

How to Store Vegan Pizza

Before storing any leftovers make sure the pizza is completely cool.

Fridge: Store in an airtight container, if you need to layer the pizza then make sure there is parchment paper between the layers. Store up to 2-4 days in the fridge.

Freezer: Flash freeze on a cookie sheet then move to a freezer safe container or bag.

Reheat in the oven, air fryer, or microwave. My favorite way is to reheat in the air fryer as it gives it a nice crisp!

FAQ’s for Vegan Pineapple Jalapeno Pizza

  1. Is pineapple and jalapeno good on pizza?
    1. Absolutely! At first it may sound weird, but the two, very different, flavors actually balance eachother out perfectly.
  2. Can I make this pizza rectangle instead of round?
    1. Of course! You can make them any shape you want, they’ll still taste the same. You could even separate the dough into 4 or 6 pieces and make individual pizzas.
  3. Do I have to bake the crust before adding the toppings and flip it, or can that step be skipped?
    1. That depends on how you like your pizza. Pre-baking the crust without toppings and flipping it will give you a thin, crispier crust than skipping those steps. Skipping the pre-bake and flipping will result in a fluffier crust.
  4. Do I have to let the dough rise for an hour before baking?
    1.   For this recipe, for a crispier crust, yes. If you don’t allow the dough time to rise then the crust may also end up a bit chewier.
  5. Can I make this recipe gluten free?
    1. This recipe has not been tested with gluten free flour.
