A pizza that you can enjoy with tofu? Sure, let me have a slice!
Pizza is one of those meals that you can sink your teeth into any time of year. Summer pizzas are especially fun because you can scatter so many different combinations of in-season ingredients over a crust and enjoy a unique pizza variation after every visit to the farmers market or your own home garden. This pizza is made simply — onions, bell peppers, olives, tomato sauce and tofu seasoned with fresh herbs.
