Tofu Broccoli Peanut Pizza

What you need: 

3/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/4 cups flour (I mix half white, half whole wheat)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1-2 cups cooked brown or white rice with coconut milk added to taste
1 block extra firm tofu fried in canola oil
1 1/2 cups steamed broccoli
PEANUT SAUCE:
1/3-1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3-1/2 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoon apple juice (could use orange, lime, lemon juice)
garlic clove/s to taste, minced
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
cilantro to taste (fresh or dried)

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 450 F.
Prepare dough by mixing water, oil, salt, sugar, and yeast. Stir in flour adding a little at a time until a sticky dough forms. Knead dough for about 3 minutes. Cover dough with olive oil and let sit covered with cloth in a warm place ~30 minutes.
While dough is rising, cook rice adding coconut milk to taste once fully cooked. Also, begin frying tofu and steaming broccoli.
Prepare peanut sauce by whisking together peanut butter, coconut milk and fruit juice. Add the spices to taste. This should NOT be very liquidy.
After dough has risen for 30 minutes, shape to fit a large flat pan. Bake at 450 Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully spread the coconut rice over the dough. Top with fried tofu, steamed broccoli and peanut sauce. Return to oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes depending on your oven. Check that it is done by lifting corner of dough.
Cut and enjoy!
Note, this is not a low-fat pizza but a very delicious knock-off Veggie Planet's (Cambridge, MA) tofu broccoli pizza!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I love, love, love this pizza at Veggie Planet.
So I definitely had to make this and it turned out wonderful!

To the sauce I added cayene pepper, salt, black pepper, onion, and garlic powder and used pineapple juice instead.

This is such a great imitation of the VP pizza.
I can't thank you enough for posting this.
I made four individual sized pizzas and froze three of them.
Putting some hot sauce on top when it was done also made it pretty tasty.

Made this yesterday for lunch... I thought it was very good, my husband liked it very much though he said it wasn't "pizza-like" at all, more like stirfry on flat bread.
I made my own multi-grain pizza dough and we left off the tofu (I just didn't want to stand there frying) and added ginger to the sauce.
If I make this again I will try to use some soymilk and maybe some kind of coconut essence or even coconut flakes because even though it was yummy, I just didn't feel the coconut milk made enough of an impact to warrant the extra fat.
