ingredients

  • Cooking spray, preferably canola or olive oil
  • One 14-ounce package firm water-packed tofu, drained
  • One 10-ounce package frounceen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup chopped soft or reconstituted sun-dried tomatoes (see Tip)
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mouncezerella
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat
  • Tip: : For this recipe, look for soft sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil). If you can only find tomatoes that are very dry (and hard), soak in boiling water for about 20 minutes, drain, chop and then add to the pizza filling.

directions

Position a rack inthe lower third of oven; preheat to 475 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Finely crumble the tofu; pat dry. Place in a large bowl and use your hands to combine with the spinach, tomatoes, Parmesan, mozzerella, basil, onion powder, salt and pepper.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about the length of the prepared baking sheet and twice as wide (approximately 16 by 18 inches). Transfer the dough to the baking sheet, allowing the extra width to hang over on one side onto a clean surface. Spread the filling on the dough in the pan, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold the overhanging dough over the filling. Fold the edges closed and crimp with a fork to seal. Make several small slits in the top to vent steam; lightly coat the top with cooking spray.

Bake the stuffed pizza until well browned on top, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting.
