Cheeseless Tofu Pizza

  • 3/4 cup Alaska Sam's sourdough starter sourdough
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cake or packet of dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
Topping Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup FF Tomato Pizza sauce
  • Tofu 1 full size cake of Soy Deli low fat Tofu
  • 8 or 9 stalks of asparagus
  • 3/4 Tbsp fake fat
  • 1 can Creamed corn
  • Italian spice mixtures, mixed Oregano, etc.
  • Paprika image placeholder

Prepare the sour dough starter as per instructions. Each is different, but Alaska Sam's must be originated with several days of "sitting." After it is done, you can leave it in the refrigerator and "feed it" occasionally with some sugar. After it has had a chance to get ready, you can use some of it for this Pizza crust.

Prepare the pizza crust with either a bread machine Set to dough-mode, rising in about 2 hrs, 35 min. OR you can do it yourself. it is easier in the bread machine. If you do it yourself, you should let the dough rise twice, each time about an hour. (Self: Mix warm water, and fake fat. Take 1/4 cup of warm water and mix it thoroughly with the yeast

Set aside for about 5 minutes before mixing it in the water. Add flour TO the water mixture slowly. Knead thorough. You might have to add more flour to the mixture in order to get it quite sticky and gooey. Cover and let rise in a warm place for an hour. Re-knead it with some more flour if necessary to keep it from getting too sticky, and re-rise it for another hour)

Sparingly spray Pam into a Pizza pan. Flatten dough out, making a nice large "spare-tire" on the outside perimeter. Sprinkle some extra cornmeal on the dough. Paint the tomato sauce on to the pizza. Chop the asparagus on to the pizza, throwing away the fibrous ends, or carefully peeling away the outside fiber. Partially drain the creamed corn and spread it on the tomato sauce. cut up the tofu and spread it around. Dust with Italian spices and paprika.

Bake in 400° F oven for about 20 minutes. Watch carefully, oven times vary extremely with pizzas. You must get to know your oven before you dare leave it alone with a pizza baking in it.
