Soy Pizza

For those of us who have stomach issues where it seems like everything we put in it hurts, I have developed a way to eat pizza and not have a stomach ache after. This is for when even the gluten free pizza crust upsets your stomach.

1 container of extra firm tofu drained and water pressed out
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup whey protein (I just use vanilla because that is what I have)
1/2 cup to 1 cup of dairy free cheese
1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
parchment paper
baking sheet, as big or as small as you want

-I did use cottage cheese as a topping with the onions and peppers. Just make sure your cottage cheese is not too watery.

Preheat the oven to 350

-Mash up the tofu and then add the whey and tomato sauce. Mix very well. I add the whey because the tofu cooks better.
-Add the tofu mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use the palm of your hand to press down and spread out the pizza into any shape you want. You can make the pizza as thin or as thick as you want. Thicker pizza will need more time to bake. Mine is usually on the thicker side.
-Bake the pizza for about 35 to 40 minutes. Make sure to check it often, the tofu will burn. You may want to turn the oven down to 325 so the pizza bakes slower helping to get rid of the moisture in the tofu.
-When the pizza is brown add your cheese and oregano. You may add any topping you wish.
-Bake until the cheese is melted.
-You may need a spoon or a fork to eat. Sometimes it does fall apart.
