1 package yeast
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cups of chopped onion
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/4 cup of olive oil
1-1/2 tsp of dried basil
1-1/2 T of freshly ground black pepper
2 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes
1 cake of shredded tofu
1/2 cup of chopped fresh parsley
2 cups of feta cheese

*To make the crust, disolve the yeast in warm water in a bowl & let it rest about 5 minutes. Add salt and olive oil. Stir in 2 cups of flour & beat well. Gradually add enough of the additional 1 1/2 cups flour to form a soft dough. When dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, turn it onto a lightly floured board. Knead for 10 minutes, adding extra flour as needed, until dough is smooth & elastic. Place dough in oiled bowl, turn it over to coat with oil, and cover bowl with damp cloth. Let dough rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours.
*While the dough is rising, make the topping. In a skillet, saute' the onions & garlic in the olive oil until the onions are translucent. Add the basil, black pepper, and chopped tomatoes & saute' for 5 minutes. Stir in the grated tofu & cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the chopped parsley & set the topping aside.
*When the dough has doubled, preheat the oven to 400. Punch down the dough & knead it slightly in the bowl. Oil two 12" round pizza pans for thin crusts or one 9 X 13" for a thick crust pizza. I like to sprinkle the pan with parmesan before I press & stretch the dough into the pan.
*Bake the dough for 10 minutes. Remove it from the oven, spread the topping evenly over the dough, sprinkle it with the grated feta & return it to the hot oven. Bake for another 15 to 25 minutes.
