    1 cup dry polenta (see glossary)
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon dried thyme
    teaspoon dried oregano
    10 sun-dried tomato halves
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    9 - 10 large garlic cloves, chopped, divided
    lb. mushrooms, chopped
    12 ounces roasted red peppers, finely chopped
    1 cup tomato sauce
    3 teaspoons dried basil, divided
    1 lb. firm tofu
    1 tablespoons white miso
    1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed butter)
    2 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
    2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
    ⅛ teaspoon black pepper


Whisk polenta into 5 cups water, then add salt, thyme, and oregano. Simmer over medium heat, stirring often, until very thick, about 25 minutes. Spread in an even layer, about 1/4-inch thick, on a large baking sheet. Cool.

Soak sun-dried tomatoes in boiling water until soft, about 10 minutes. Chop and set aside.

Heat 1/2 cup water and cook onion, 6 cloves garlic, and mushrooms until soft, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, roasted peppers, tomato sauce, and 1 teaspoon basil. Simmer 5 minutes.

Place tofu in a clean dishtowel and squeeze to remove some of the water. Transfer to a food processor. Add miso, remaining 2 teaspoons basil, and tahini. Process until completely smooth.

Heat 1/4 cup water in a large skillet, then add remaining 3–4 cloves garlic. Cook 1 minute, then add spinach, vinegar, soy sauce, and black pepper. Cook, stirring often, until all the liquid is evaporated.

Preheat oven to 350F.

To assemble pizza: spread tofu mixture evenly over polenta. Top with spinach, then sprinkle with tomato sauce. Bake for 20 minutes
