  • 1 block of tofu firm
  • 4 slices of black forest ham
  • 2 champignon mushrooms
  • ½ bell pepper
  • 1 Roma tomato medium-sized
  • 4 tbsp ketchup
  • ¼ cup potato starch or cornstarch or flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil


  • Slice the tofu block into two equal slices. Place them on a paper towel to drain for 10 -15 minutes until most of the liquid leaves the tofu.
  • Stack the ham slices and cut them into small pieces.
  • Slice the bell pepper into small pieces. Then do the same with the mushrooms.
  • Slice the tomato into thin slices. Thicker slices will leave too much juice and make the pizza soggy.
  • Mix the starch or flour with salt and pepper.
  • Place the drained tofu slices into the starch and coat both sides well to seal in the remaining moisture. This helps prevent soggy tofu.
  • Grab an oven-safe skillet (you will put it in the oven later). Now hear up some vegetable oil and fry the tofu on both sides until golden brown.
  • Spread the ketchup onto the tofu, add the ham, mushrooms, bell peppers, and tomato.
  • Now it’s time to sprinkle the cheese on top.
  • Place the pan in the oven for about 5 or 6 minutes to broil the pizza. The cheese should melt and begin to brown.
  • Once out of the oven, plate the pizzas and garnish them with two basil leaves each. Now serve the tofu pizza while hot.
