Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Tomatoes, broccoli, sweet peppers, and onions.

An easy tasty light pizza that is always a hit! You can make your own tomato sauce and pizza dough OR use store-bought ones if you don't have much time!


Ingredients You'll Need

DOUGH **** If you don't have much time, you can use a store-bought dough****
1 1/2 teaspoons traditional yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2-3 cups flour

TOPPING
1-2 sweet peppers, seeded and chopped
1 tomato, diced
1 head of broccoli, broken into very small florets
1 small onion, finely chopped
A few handful of chopped olives or your choice (optional)

ASSEMBLY
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
A few spoonfuls of tomato sauce
1/4 block of firm tofu, crumbled with you hands (optional)
A few basil leaves, chopped (optional)
A few arugula (or kale) leaves, chopped (optional)


Directions

DOUGH:

Mix yeast, water and sugar together in a bowl. Let rest for 15 minutes (to proof the yeast)

In another bowl, mix salt and flour.

Add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients. Knead 10 minutes, or till smooth and elastic, adding flour if necessary to keep from being sticky (if using a stand mixer, knead for 2 min at speed 2, adding flour if necessary, until the dough comes off the hook without sticking).

Form the dough into a ball. Pour a bit of oil on the dough and rub all over. Cover and let rise till doubled (about 1 hour). Note: A great place to let it rise is to put it in the microwave or oven (as long as you don't turn them on).

Proceed to making the topping.

TOPPING

Cut all the veggies and set aside.

ASSEMBLY

Preheat the oven to 450 F.

When the dough has doubled in size, punch down. Roll with a rolling pin and place the dough on a lightly oiled pizza pan.

Drizzle 1-2 tbsp of oil on top of the pizza dough and spread evenly. Add a few spoonfuls of your favourite tomato sauce and spread evenly. Distribute the topping evenly. With your hands, crumble the tofu on top of the pizza. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the pizza for 15 minutes until the crust is slightly golden. As the pizza comes out of the oven, add a few chopped basil leaves and/or arugula and/or kale leaves (optional). Enjoy!
