TOFU PIZZA



The Tofu Pizza  is inspired by my son's love of bird's eye chili. It is now a staple in our household. We are now shifting to using them almost in all our our dishes.

This is especially made to his liking that includes bird's eye chili and tofu as its topping. Addition of chili really enhance the taste of this healthy pizza but this is entirely up to your preference.

You can also include other veggies such as bell pepper or mushroom. Despite its simplicity this turns out fabulous and very tasty. They are now become my family favorite pizza.

TOFU PIZZA
Yield   1-12 in pizza

DOUGH
2  cup all purpose flour
1 1/4  tsp rapid rise yeast
150 ml  warm water
1  tablespoon  dry milk
2  tablespoon oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

TOPPING
1 tomato  thinly sliced
1 onion  thinly sliced
1/2 cup sliced bell pepper
5 bird's eye chili minced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 cup firm tofu crumbled
2 - 3  tablespoon mayonnaise
2  tablespoon  tomato sauce
2  tablespoon  chili sauce
1  tablespoon  oil
salt to taste

METHOD
DOUGH

Place flour, salt, yeast  and sugar in a mixing bowl, stir well. Gradually add water and oil until a soft dough is formed.

Flour your board, knead by hand for 5 minutes. Place in a covered and oiled bowl, let rise for 1 - 1 1/2 hours.

While waiting for the pizza to rise, prepare the topping. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 190 C.

Heat the oil, fry the garlic until fragrant, add the bird's eye chili, cook for a minute.

Now add crumbled tofu, salt, chili sauce and tomato sauce, cook for 2 minutes. Remove and cool.

Roll out the pizza dough to fit into a baking pan. Spread the mayonnaise then the cooked tofu.

Arrange tomato, bell pepper and onion slices on top of the tofu.

Bake the pizza until the crust is crisp and golden brown for 15 minutes.

Transfer onto rack to cool. Cut into wedges to serve.

That is a lovely looking pie. I found the use of mayonnaise very interesting. I'm relatively new to your blog and don't comment often. I did, however, want you to know how much I appreciate your site. You've created a lovely spot for your readers to visit and I always enjoy what I find here. I hope you are having a great day.
