Vegan Tofu Pizza

Pizza Crust

Follow one of our bread recipes for making the crust. For this recipe we used spelt bread. For a thick crust use the 4 cup mix, or cut back the recipe for a thinner crust.


1 28-oz can Tomatoes, crushed
1-2 tbsp. Garlic, crushed
1 tbsp. Oregano, dry
Cayenne Pepper, to taste

Tofu Layer

1 lb Tofu, firm, block
1/2 cup Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
1 tbsp. Corn Starch


Tomatoes, Italian Roma
Onion, red
Black Olives, sliced


We suggest starting with the preparation of the pizza dough.

While the dough is mixing, place all the sauce ingredients in a covered glass pot or microwaveable bowl and simmer the sauce until it thickens (about 1 hour on the stove top). By the time the dough is ready for the sauce, the sauce should be thickened.

We bake our pizzas on a pizza stone or terra cotta baking pan, which has been lightly dusted with corn meal. When the dough is mixed, roll it out on a thin layer of flour. Dust the upper surface with additional flour until the dough is the size of the pizza pan. Transfer to the pizza pan and let rise in a warming drawer or in your oven set at 110 degrees F.

While the dough is rising, add the tofu layer ingredients to a blender, cover, and blend until the ingredients have a smooth creamy texture.

Thinly slice the tomatoes, onion and olives.

When the dough has risen, pre-bake the pizza at 400 degrees F. for about 10-15 minutes or until the top surface is firm to the touch.

Remove the pizza dough from the oven, gently spread on a layer of the tomato sauce. Next, gently spread on a layer of the tofu cream. Cover with tomato slices and onion rings, and sprinkle on the olive slices.

Return the pizza to the oven and continue baking at 400 degrees F. for about another 15 minutes. Check to make sure it isn't burning. When the edges of the crust are crisp and lightly browned, the pizza is ready.

Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool slightly for a few minutes. Slice and serve.
