Caesar Pizza Topping

Prep: 15 minutes (depending on sauce) Cook: 12 minutes

Serves:Covers one 15 inch pizza crust

Here is another unusual and creative topping for a pizza crust. There are a few variations included at the end of the recipe and this can be very fast to put together depending on what kind of sauces you have in your refrigerator.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Roasted Garlic
  • 1/4 cup OR Ranch Style Dressing or Dill Tofu Dip
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese substitute
  • 1/2 cup Baked Tofu, diced
  • 2 cups Romaine lettuce, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Caesar salad dressing

Directions

Spread the garlic paste OR one of the dressing OR dip sauces over the pizza crust. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the ParmesanCheese substitute and the baked tofu. Bake for about 12 minutes,as directed in the Pizza Crust recipe.

Meanwhile, toss the sliced romaine with the Caesar dressing. Set aside until crust is finished baking. Remove crust from oven, top with the dressed romaine lettuce and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese substitute. Slice and serve at once.

Variations: For garlic lovers, I recommend the garlic paste topping. It is smooth and creamy under the Caesar dressing. If you are not so much of a garlic lover, then try one of the other tofu-based toppings as a spread for the pizza crust. The baked tofu is entirely optional. "Chicken-style" seitan may also be used in this recipe. If you have some Caesar dressing and one of the tofu dips in your refrigerator, this can be put together rather quickly.
