A way to make lean pizza with broccoli and tofu
Making vegetable stuffing for pizza. Large broccoli florets cut in half, leave small whole. Throw cabbage into boiling salted water, cook for 5 minutes, then immediately transfer it to cold water to stop the cooking process and keep the color. We drop the cooled broccoli on a sieve.
We grease the pan with oil, fry the finely chopped onion and carrots grated on a large grater until soft, salt to taste.
Cherry tomatoes cut in half. You can fry the cherry slightly next to the onions and carrots, but this is not necessary.
Making pizza dough. In a deep bowl, sift wheat flour, mix with fine salt.
Dissolve fresh yeast in warm water (30-35 degrees). Make a well in flour, pour in the dissolved yeast.
Mix liquid and dry ingredients, pour extra virgin olive oil of the first cold-pressed variety.
Knead the dough with your hands until it stops sticking to your fingers (5-8 minutes is enough). Cover the bowl with a clean towel, set in heat.
When the dough increases by 2-3 times, and it usually takes 45-60 minutes at room temperature, crush it - “blow off carbon dioxide”.
Sprinkle the working surface with wheat flour, roll out a round cake approximately 7 millimeters thick. We shift the cake on a dry clean baking sheet, with our fingers form a small rim.
Fold in evenly cooled filling. First, roast carrots with onions, then add the blossoms of blanched broccoli.
Add cherry cut in half. Tomatoes put cut down - in the oven, the juice from the cherry will flow on the dough and replace the ketchup.
Hard tofu cheese rubbed on a large grater, sprinkle vegetables.
Pizza with olive oil. Turn on to heat up to 220 degrees Celsius oven.
Put the pan in a hot oven, bake for 15 minutes. Then we immediately remove from the pan and serve fast pizza with broccoli and tofu to the table hot.
Bon appetit! Cook with pleasure!
