Pumpkin and Tofu pizza

This is a pretty simple pizza which me and Mr. Monster love, if you love pumpkin... and you love tofu... give it a try!

You will need (per pizza):
1 pizza base of choice - I prefer thin
1 cup of bite sized pieces of butternut pumpkin
1 cup of shredded fresh spinach
1/4 cup of extra firm tofu, crumbled
1/4 cup of sliced red onion

Tomato Paste for base (I usually get one with garlic added... or add some minced garlic)
oil for roasting
1 teaspoon of dried mix herbs

Place diced pumpkin in a bowl and lightly drizzle with oil
lay out pumpkin on an oven tray and roast at 180C for 15-20 minutes or until pumpkin is roasted nicely
While pumpkin is roasting, throw crumbled tofu and spinach into the same bowl with mixed herbs - very lightly drizzle with oil and toss to coat - set aside (it should look like the picture below)

Cover pizza base with tomato paste and top with red onion
gently place cooked pumpkin on pizza and throw spinach mixture on top
bake in oven at 180C for roughly 15 minutes or until spinach has wilted.
Crack some sea salt and pepper over the pizza
slice and serve - enjoy!
