- 2 cups Pineapple Salsa
- 2 cups Low-fat Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
- ¾ cup Sweet and Sour sauce
- 1 cup Gouda or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- 2 pcs. Medium onions, thinly sliced
For the Jerk Sauce
- 2 – 3 pcs. Red Chili or Habanero pepper
- 1 pc. Ginger, small
- 2 pcs. Garlic Cloves, small
- 3 pcs. Green onion stalks, chopped
- 1 ½ tsp. Tomato puree
- 2 tsps. Roasted Cumin seeds (crushed)
- 1 tsp. Black peppercorns, coarsely crushed
- 2 – 3 tbsp. Lemon Juice
- ¼ tsp. All-spice
- 2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
- 1 tbsp. Vinegar

- Prepare the tofu first by slicing it into small cubes and cooking it in an oil-greased pan until it turns light brown in color before setting it aside.
- Using a blender or food processor, grind the habaneros along with tomato puree until it becomes a thick paste. Cook the paste by heating it in a pan along with some oil for one minute. After that, mix the rest of the jerk sauce ingredients and cook until the sauce becomes thick. Add tofu and mix until everything is well-blended.
- Next, prepare the pizza dough by setting it on top of a baking tray before poking some holes in its base by means of a fork. Spread the jerk sauce in its base before sprinkling it with some gouda cheese. After that, add the pineapple salsa, jerk tofu and mozzarella cheese.
- Transfer the pizza in the oven preheated 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake it for at least 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese bubbles and becomes fully-melted. Remove from oven and slice using a pizza slicer before serving.
