Yoghurt-Marinated Tofu Pizza

Yoghurt-Marinated Tofu Pizza

Tender spiced tofu chopped up and slathered all over a pizza base. Yes, we did.

  • Roughly chop up some tofu into cubes and put in a bowl with some yoghurt, salt and pepper, paprika, cumin, coriander seeds, turmeric and cinnamon - quantities to taste. Stir to coat, and set aside to marinate for at least 20 minutes. Once done par cook the tofu by frying or grilling it for about 5 minutes until golden. 

  • Heat your oven to maximum (really turn up the heat). Those wood-fired pizza ovens are even hotter, so don’t be scared. Make sure your oven tray is in the centre of the oven heating up. 

  • Thinly spread or brush the pizza base with some tomato pizza sauce, leaving a bit of space around the edges. 

  • Evenly sprinkle some fresh and finely chopped herbs of your choice (oregano/thyme/rosemary would be great here but optional), and, most importantly, cheese! We always recommend a heavy hand when adding the grated mozzarella cheese. Scatter over the tofu. 

  • Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes, but make sure you keep an eye on it so that it's cooked perfectly – cheese lightly melted and bubbling and the edges are golden.

  • Serve hot, topped with thin slices of fresh tomato, and sprinkled with some fresh rocket.


Replace the tofu with any alternatives such as: seitan, chickpeas or sweet potato cubes!
