    Tempeh Taco Pizza Party

    What kid doesn’t love Mexican food—especially tacos? They’re fun; they’re colourful; and kids can choose from an assortment of tasty ingredients to make them unique to themselves. While some kids might just stick with sauce and cheese, others may be more adventurous and opt for all the colours.

    Tip

    For the adults in the group, jazz up an individual pizza with crushed dried chilies or a drizzle of their favourite hot sauce.

    Directions

    01

    Coarsely grate tempeh. In large skillet, heat oil until shimmering. Add tempeh and sauteu0301 over medium-high heat, stirring often and breaking up any large pieces so tempeh is fully crumbly. Mixture should look like coarse ground beef. Stir in garlic, seasonings, and tomato sauce until evenly distributed. Simmer briefly to marry flavours. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to bowl.

    02

    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Place tortillas on baking sheet and brush each with oil. For each pizza to be the same, divide tempeh mixture evenly among tortillas along with green pepper, cherry tomatoes, olives, and mozzarella.

    03

    Bake in oven until piping hot and cheese is melted. Remove and scatter with avocado and cilantro. Cool slightly and serve.
