1 lb brown tofu
3 Tbs tahini
1 tsp garlic powder, or fresh garlic
1 Tsp salt
1 Tsp onion powder, or fresh onion
soy sauce to taste
Cashew Cheese Sauce:
1 16 oz can sweet red pimientos, or yellow pepper
2 Tbs. Tahini
1 Tbs. Yeast flakes (opt) or flour
1 cup raw cashews
½ cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cup water
Tofu: Slice tofu into pieces (or try breaking up into texture of ground beef). In a saute pan, brown tofu with tahini, salt, onion and garlic until almost brown then add soy sauce to taste.
Cashew Cheese Sauce: Blend until smooth (Note: this “cheese” sauce can be used with macaroni and cheese).
Fixing the pizza:
Use your favorite pizza crust, we used Bobili. Layer the pizza with tomato sauce, tofu, and your favorite pizza toppings and then the cheese sauce. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
