Vegan Tofu Bruschetta Pizza!

What you need: 

1/2 cup thinly sliced tofu (firm)
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 small onion
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 tomato
balsamic vinegar
olive oil
your favorite fresh pizza dough
vegan mozzarella (optional)

What you do: 

Marinate tofu in balsamic vinegar for up to 1 hour beforehand.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare dough by flouring liberally and stretching (and tossing if you're feeling lucky).
Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with chopped garlic. Place in oven for 10-15 minutes (until crust and garlic pieces begin to turn golden).
While crust is baking, over medium heat, sautee onions and mushrooms until caramelized. Add tofu and diced tomato.
Top crust with onions, mushrooms, tofu, diced tomato, and spinach. Drizzle additional balsamic vinegar on top. Return to oven for additional 15-20 minutes. MmmMmMmmm!
Tips: Making the crust as thin as possible makes adding toppings easier and ensures the dough will cook all the way through. If you have any doubts about done-ness use a spatula to check the bottom of the pie...it should be a golden brown.
Variations: Try roasted red pepper instead of tomato or sprinkle your favorite vegan mozzarella on top! For dough variations try kneading in some dried rosemary or oregano!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Thanks for the recipe! Some great ideas for toppings here - have never tried balsamic marinated tofu before - which I did enjoy. I don't like mushrooms, so I substituted & used orange pepper instead. The ingredient list did not mention spinach, but that was mentioned in the preparation section. Didnt have that, but added some fresh basil instead. Also sprinkled some seasoned salt on top, with some vegan mozzarella.  :)

this was really really good.
i normally make boring pizza with fake cheese and some sauce and some spinach and some olives.
then i found this and it was wonderful.
i added the vegan mozzarella, and i would recommend putting the pizza directly on the rack the second time in the oven so the bottom gets crispy and yummy :)
anyway, thumbs up and thanks for the recipe!
