Tofu, a great source of soy protein, also boasts significant calcium and magnesium. Research shows that soy-based meals that also include fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts can help fight hypertension, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and some cancers. Tofu is a great flavor sponge. And because it readily soaks up seasonings, it’s a wonderful choice for marinating. It is convenient and filling and a great source of protein.
Can you think of a better way to use tofu than to make fantastic vegan pizza? Maybe you can, but this recipe is great neverheless 🙂
Cooking tofu is easy and so is preparing pizza. There are so many different ways of making pizza. In vegan version there is usualy tofu instead of cheese. And lots of different veggies.
Here is a little different recipe than my usual pizza. What you do is prepare dough and let it first bake for 5 minutes. Then you put tofu pesto with basil, roasted tomato sauce (with garlic) and caramelized onions. Simple, looks great, is vegan friendly and delicious.
