Cook's Hideout: Thai Tofu Pizza on Spelt Crust

Thai Tofu Pizza on Spelt Crust

Blogging Marathon# 66: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Pizza
Dish: Thai Tofu Pizza on Spelt Crust
For the last day of this week's marathon, I have an interesting pizza recipe. The base is a No-rise spelt flour crust and the topping is spicy peanut sauce with crumbled tofu. I was in an experimenting mode and found these recipes -- crust recipe from Vegan Richa and Thai tofu topping recipe from Nasoya -- and wanted to give them a try.
No-rise Spelt Pizza with Thai Tofu Topping
No rise instant pizza crusts seem to be the common theme for all three days this week (check out the instant-pizza crust and chickpea flour crust). This spelt flour pizza base doesn't need any rising time and is ready to roll once you have the topping done. Richa's original recipe has BBQ tofu topping, but I used the Thai style peanut-Tofu instead.

I was skeptical how the family would react to this quite unusual pizza. To be on the safe side, I made a tomato and cheese pizza for the kids on the same spelt base. They loved the crispy thin crust and my son wanted me to make it again very soon. So the crust is a keeper.

As for the peanut topping, my husband loved it a lot. It's spicy, sweet and well peanutty :-) I can see myself making this topping very often now. There's far less guilt-factor eating this pizza than eating a regular one. So this recipe goes straight into my favorite folder :-)

Crust recipe from here and Thai Tofu recipe from here:
