i’m a tofu newbie. in the spirit of culinary experiments, i thought it was about time to venture into the (wonderful) world of tofu.

i’ve ordered agedashi tofu at izakaya bars before, but somehow it’s never made its way into my kitchen. who knew that tofu is such a versatile ingredient?! i guess i’ve been missing out all this time… not anymore! :)

some organic tofu from the neighbourhood market and fresh pizza dough from itza bakeshop made for fantastic feature ingredients in this culinary experiment.

– preheat oven to 400F

prep the dough:
– sprinkle some whole-wheat flour on a clean surface before rolling out the pizza dough
– using a rolling pin, flatten out the dough into a thin, round pie
– sprinkle some more flour on the dough pie, flip over before applying the rolling pin again
– place the prepped dough pie on a pizza stone (at room temperature) or a lightly-greased, round baking pan

prep the toppings:
– 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (rough chop)
– 1 cup organic raw tofu (sliced into bite-sized chunks)
– 1 sprig of fresh organic rosemary (leaves removed from stem)
– 1 cup organic mixed greens
– 75-100g queso blanco (grated)

prep the pie:
– spread 1 tbsp low-fat, plain yogurt on the dough pie (instead of traditional pizza sauce)
– add organic mixed greens over yogurt sauce
– add tofu chunks & sundried tomato pieces
– sprinkle fresh rosemary leaves over tofu chunks
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– generously sprinkle grated cheese evenly over pizza toppings

bake the pie:
– bake pizza at 400F for 20min, or until crust is golden brown
– remove from oven & allow to cool on rack before slicing pizza

food styling:
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– serve w/ organic mixed greens on the side
– pairs well w/ your fave red vino

  1. I’m a tofu newbie as well–I’ve yet to cook with it. I don’t necessarily love it, but I also don’t mind it at all (especially when on a pizza. :)) Looks great!


    • i was looking for a new source of protein for my running nutrition. something other than the usual salmon, tuna, chicken, almonds, etc. trying out some tofu, just to mix it up a bit. :)


  2. I always have tofu in the fridge, but never do too much with it. Thanks for the idea.
