For the filling:

  • 1 can red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 3/4 can chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp chili paste (optional)
  • 350 g tofu
  • 2 small beetroots
  • 300 g closed cup mushrooms
  • 1 Clove garlic
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp nut milk

  • 7 g dry yeast (1 sachet)

If using whole cup mushrooms, pan fry them first, on both sides. You will top your pizza up with them before baking it.
  4. Once your dough is ready, turn it out on to a baking parchment paper (same size as your baking tray) and knead again for couple of minutes, then roll in into a circular shape, should be few mm thick
