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.

2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp rapid rise yeast

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.
