Spinach Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Pizza

Pizza is an ol' game companion. They go along incredibly well, especially when you have to feed a mini-stadium at home. Here is a healthy and yummy version for this weekend! Obviously, if sun-dried tomato and spinach are not big hits for the crowd, change it!(But try to be healthier and more creative than just replacing the veggies with sausage and peperoni).

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Pizza
Servings: 6 portions
  • 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
Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 475°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
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.
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.
Bake the stuffed pizza until well browned on top, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting.
