  • Cooking spray, preferably canola or olive oil
  • 1 14-ounce package firm water-packed tofu, drained
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 cup chopped soft or reconstituted sun-dried tomatoes (see Tip)
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 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


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 475 °F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Finely crumble tofu; pat dry. Place in a large bowl and use your hands to combine with spinach, tomatoes, Parmesan, mozzarella, basil, onion powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Roll out 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.
  4. Bake the stuffed pizza until well browned on top, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting.
  • 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.

Great Blend of Food for Multiple Recipes My husband and I made this together. We used chicken instead of tofu, we also added some Italian seasoning and garlic powder. It tasted so good! I thought something was a little too punchy for my liking. IDK if it was basil or the sun dried tomatoes- haven't had those before. But it was really good. We had trouble rolling out the dough, haha. So we couldn't use all the fixings. We used some leftover seasoning in eggs, put on sandwich, with marinara sauce. Pros: Good flavor, healthy ingredients Cons: Lots of dishes, not good at rolling dough haha

Delicious! Very good! We had leftover cooked corn and broccoli from the night before and added that. also we used fresh chopped tomatoes b/c we didn't have any sundried, and substituted fresh parsley for the basil. I ate half of it by myself...delicious!!

It is ok... This was really easy to make, first recipe I have ever made with Tofu actually. I could really only taste the spinach, however, none of the cheese taste came through or anything. I don't think I would make this again. Pros: Very quick and easy Cons: Kind of bland...

These are just great I loved theses. They were pretty simple to make. The longest part was making the dough (will not use store made, sorry), and they came out great. Boyfriend loved them even though he is not a big tofu fan. He did suggest a little oregano, and used some marinara sauce to dip in, but loved it. Pros: easy, healthy

Delicious fast and easy recipe! This recipe is very versatile. It is easy to choose different ingredients to use inside the pizza. I chose fresh mozzarella chopped finely and also added some Italian seasoning and extra fresh basil. Also, I used olive oil instead of the spray and it worked perfectly. Mine turned out more like a calzone instead of a pizza, but still was delicious. I bakes at 425F for 30 minutes, so the inside had a chance to cook. I think next time I will add in some sliced black olives, artichokes, and grilled onions. It's a great recipe! Pros: Fast, easy to make

This recipe was fantastic! I added some fresh garlic and forgot the salt, pepper, and onion powder but it still had a wonderful. flavor. I would use more basil next time because I really love basil but other than that it was great. My boyfriend is a big fan of meat but he loved this vegetarian dish. I'll definitely make it again and it's so easy!

It was good! I forgot the basil though. My frozen spinach had a sandy, gritty texture to it and that was kinda crappy. I agree though. I think adding garlic to it would be good. It was my husband's first time trying tofu, and he was pretty pleased. Makes great leftovers!

Didn't taste cheesy at all. I probably won't make this again.

Delicious! The whole family loved it, even my husband who shudders at the thought of eating tofu. Will definitely make again and will probably add garlic as the other reviewer suggested
