Pizza - Swiss Chard, Onion and Tofu

(To enlarge the photos of the pizza, click on the photos or link)

Pizza Dough

2 lbs Swiss Chard, chopped
1 Onion, large, sweet, chopped
1-2 tbsp. Garlic, crushed
Red Pepper Sauce (to taste)
1 lb Tofu, firm, block
1/2 cup Lemon Juice
1 Carrot, large, peeled
1/2 cup Nutritional Yeast
1/2 tsp. Salt (optional)
2 tbsp. Corn Starch


Follow our Pizza Dough recipe or use your own.  The pizza dough recipe we selected is one made with spelt and barley flour, but a dough made with whole wheat flour will work just as well.

While the pizza dough is rising, wash and peel the onions and garlic.  Slice and dice or cut the onions into the desired size pieces.  Crush the garlic.  Cook the onions and garlic with a little red pepper sauce until the onions begin to become translucent.  We prefer cooking in our microwave oven, using a large covered baking dish.

Wash and chop the Swiss chard, or shred in a food processor, and place in the cooking container with the the onions and garlic.  Cook until the Swiss chard becomes tender.

While the chard is cooking, prepare the tofu "cream" in a blender.  Wash and peel the carrot.  Place the lemon juice, tofu, carrot, nutritional yeast and corn starch in the blender container and blend at high speed until the mixture is "creamy" smooth.

While the pizza dough is pre-baking in a 400 degree F. oven for 15 minutes, mix together the cooked chard and tofu "cream" from the blender, and cook for another 10 minutes.

When the pizza dough is pre-baked, remove the pan from the oven and set on a wire rack.  Quickly top the dough with the chard-tofu topping.  Smooth out to the edges with a spatula, and place back in the preheated 400 degree F. oven for another 15 minutes.

Remove the baked pizza from the oven and set on a wire rack.  Let cool for about 5 minutes before cutting.  Enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-14)
