Ingredients

Healthy Delicious Pizza with Tofu

  • 1 spelt pizza base (I used Biona Organic Spelt Pizza Base)
  • 3 tablespoons organic tomato puree
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme and oregano
  • ½ pack of mori-nu firm silken tofu
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • A few squeezes of lemon juice
  • ½ green pepper
  • 1 mushroom
  • 1 tomato
  • A few marinated artichokes
  • A handful of black olives
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Fresh basil leaves

How to make Healthy Delicious Pizza with Tofu

1. First, pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6. To make the ‘mozzarella’, carefully slice the silken tofu into thin pieces and then, using a shot glass, cut out small round moulds. Slice these into little half moon shapes.

Never mind the shot glass! It’s from my recent trip to Norway :)

2. Spread the tomato puree over the base, using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle over the thyme and oregano. Sprinkle the tofu slices with nutritional yeast and garlic powder and add to the base. Drizzle over the lemon juice. Spread the sliced pepper, mushroom, tomato, artichokes and olives evenly over the top.

 

3. Now drizzle over the olive oil, making sure the tofu and veggies are well coated. Place on top shelf of a pre-heated oven and cook for about 8 – 10 minutes, depending on your base. Keep your eye on it. Once baked, finish off your masterpiece with fresh basil leaves and freshly cracked pepper! Enjoy!

Tofu is well-known for its high protein levels, and as it is good protein, this has been found to lower high blood pressure, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
