Ingredients

Ginger Garlic Tofu

  • 14 oz. firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium gluten free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil + a little more for cooking
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Chinese Pizza - per 7" pizza

Instructions

  • Ginger Garlic Tofu: Press tofu with a tofu press or wrapped in a towel with a heavy object on top of tofu for at least 15 minutes to get water out.
  • Combine garlic, ginger, tamari, and sesame oil.
  • Slice tofu and put in marinade. Marinate overnight for the strongest flavor, or if you're in a hurry, marinate for at less an hour.
  • Heat sesame oil in a pan and add tofu. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, then flip and cook other side until golden brown.
  • Chinese Pizza: Preheat oven to 450°. Make / cook pizza crust according to directions.*
  • Chop red pepper. Set aside.
  • Spoon hoisin sauce on pizza crust. I used only 1 tablespoon because it is so sweet. If you like it sweeter, use 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons.
  • Spread Ginger Garlic Tofu on pizza crust. Sprinkle on red pepper. Cook pizza at 450° for 10 minutes, or until red pepper is crisp tender.*
  • While pizza is cooking, chop cilantro and green onion. Sprinkle on cooked pizza.

Notes

My pizza crust needs to be cooked twice, so I cooked it for 10 minutes before adding topiings. Adjust instructions according to your pizza crust.
