Veggie Tofu Pizza

Today I have a fun and exciting new recipe for you! And it involves tofu. Silken tofu to be exact. While I have used silken tofu in smoothies and desserts before, I have never actually cooked with it. But this pizza turned out so wonderful that I cannot wait to cook with it again. It added such a wonderful creamy, silky texture to the pizza!

The silken tofu (just like regular tofu) doesn’t have any flavor on it’s own. So to compensate I loaded up this pizza with toppings galore! The ‘za was piled high with veggies like butternut squash, bell peppers, green olives and jalapeños.

And for a little extra flavor I spiced it up with cinnamon, nutmeg, tarragon and chives.

Topped it off with goat’s cheese. Perfection!

Veggie Tofu Pizza

Makes one pizza

Pre-made crust

1 tbsp olive oil

Half a block of silken tofu

As much cinnamon and nutmeg as your heart desires

1 cup of frozen, diced butternut squash (defrosted)

1/2 cup chopped frozen bell peppers (defrosted)

1/2 cup of green olives

1/8 cup diced jalapeños

Plenty of chives and tarragon

Goat’s cheese

To make this pizza, start by pre-heating your oven to temperature indicated on the package (if using a pre-made crust).

Then, start assembling your pizza! Begin by spreading 1 tbsp of olive oil, followed by the silken tofu, all over the crust.

Next, sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg over the tofu to your heart’s desire. Don’t be shy here, these two spices help add a lot of flavor!

Then, place the butternut squash, bell peppers, olives and jalapeños on the pizza.

Now sprinkle on the chives and tarragon. Again, add as little or as much as you want. Sorry for not including measurements, but it’s the best way to experiment with the intensity of flavors you enjoy the most.

Finally, crumble some fresh goat’s cheese on top and bake on a baking sheet per package instructions (probably around 10 minutes). Enjoy!

Soak up the sun while you can,
