Who knew that potatoes were so amazing? Here they are turned, very cleverly, into a fabulous pizza crust. This snazzy crust is topped with lightly saut Eed vegetables and tofu, and then layered with cheese and tomato sauce, and finished with tomato slices
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 4 potatoes, shredded
- 1 medium onion, grated
- 2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Coat a 12 inch pizza or baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, shredded onion, eggs and flour. Mix well and press into the prepared pan.
Bake for 15 minutes. Spray top of shell with cooking oil and bake for 10 more minutes. Place under broil and broil for 3 minutes, until golden and crisp. Remove crust from oven but leave oven on.
In a large bowl combine the zucchini, yellow squash, green pepper, thinly sliced onion, garlic and tofu. Toss to combine.
