Impress Them On Your Children

Here's a barbecue tofu pizza I created with leftovers. Made from Pioneer Woman pizza dough, homemade barbecue sauce( recipe coming up), mozzarella, firm tofu and arugula.  This is a meatless pizza with tofu as a substitute for chicken.

This pizza not only looks so awesome but hearty and tasty as well.  I had two pieces of these for my dinner and younger son finished the rest within seconds while I was cooking his pasta.  I love the tangy taste of this pizza and it was delicious with the melting mozzarella. The tofu do taste a little like chunky chicken breast to any unsuspecting carnivores.  It could have been nicer if I had left the pizza longer in the oven to brown the crust longer but I was too hungry and impatient.

 Tofu Pizza


I pizza dough
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1 cup mozzarella or more
1 firm tofu
1 tsp cajun seasoning
salt to taste
ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoon flour
olive oil
half a bag of arugula


  • Cut tofu into small cubes and season with cajun seasoning, salt and ground pepper. Dredge tofu in flour and pan fried in hot oil. Set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 200C. Roll and pull  pizza dough thinly, Brush olive oil on a pan and lay pizza dough. Spread the barbecue sauce and toss tofu with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella and add tofu pieces. Sprinkle more mozzarella and bake in lower rack of hot oven. Bake till crust is golden brown and cheese is completely melted, about 10-15 minutes. Serve with arugula leaves.

Sunday School

Sunday School celebrated Children's Day last week with the theme Let's Go Japan. The speaker was the church missionary to Japan. She spoke to the children about the geographical background and climate of Japan.
 She also shared about the culture and custom of the Japanese children and their spiritual beliefs. The children later learnt to sing in Japanese and played games at various games stations. They were also given goody bag with Japanese snacks. The children enjoyed the day and there was even a request to "go" China next year. Praise God!

Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
