Vegan-ize Delivery Pizza and Tofu Feta Recipe!

Monday Monday. . .So good to me. . .

Hey hunnie bunnies!

I am a pizza fanatic.  I could eat it for every meal of the day!  I make it all the time at home but sometimes (particularly in the wee small hours of the morning apres a crazy night out) I just have to have delivery pizza.  For Winnipeggers, late-night pies are as easy to acquire as dialing the number '2' seven times (Pizza Hotline, anyone?) but regardless of your locale, you can vegan-ize delivery pizza no problem!

Simply order a vegetarian pizza with no cheese (at which point the order taker may repeat 'no cheese?!' as if you've lost your mind) maybe double sauce if you're a saucy gal like me, and add on whatever extra vegetarian toppings you like.  Extra spinach, spicy eggplant, garlic, banana peppers, pineapple, artichoke hearts, olives, bell peppers - whatever you like/they offer! 

Once your pizza arrives, you can add a little extra flare by drizzling it with extra virgin olive oil, maybe a few drops of balsamic vinegar, fresh basil or a sprinkle of dried oregano, some vegan cheeze (if you use vegan cheeze, then just broil it a little to make it melty), some white or black beans, toasted pine nuts, a pinch of chili flakes and some chopped sun dried tomatoes - again, whatever your heart desires!  My new fave is to top the 'za with some home made crumbled tofu feta and give it a little drizzle of olive oil before broiling it for a minute or two.  Tofu feta is DELISH and so easy to make.  Add it to salads, wraps, bruschetta, pasta dishes, vegan chili, the possibilities end only with your imagination :)

Tofu Feta
- 1 pkg extra firm tofu, cubed or roughly crumbled
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 heaping tbsp nutritional yeast
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tsp shoyu
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp oregano

- 1/2 - 1 tsp salt (start with 1/2 tsp then season to taste, real feta is quite salty)
- fresh group peppa

Whisk together all ingredients except tofu in a glass dish.  Add the tofu and toss to coat.  Let the tofu marinate for at LEAST an hour, tossing every now and then.  Taste and season accordingly.  The tofu and marinade can be stored together in a sealed container in the fridge for 3 - 4 days and the flavour will intensify, woo hoo!
