So, you may notice a trend lately. We have been buying pre-made pizza crust and coming up with all sorts of delicious concoctions. If you missed the Curry Sweet Potato Pizza or the Supreme Pizza, go back and check them out. I'm telling you, though, this is the best one yet! I was inspired by my killer zucchini salad, and it went perfectly on a pizza!
Tofu Thai Pizza
- 1 block extra firm tofu
- 1-2 tbs peanut oil
- 3 stalks green onion
- 3 medium size zucchini
- 1 large carrot
- 1/4 tsp salt + 1 pinch
- 2 tbs peanut butter
- 1 tbs tamari or soy sauce
- 1 tbs sriracha
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup daiya cheese
- 1/3 cup blanched almond slivers
- more sriracha for topping (optional)
- fresh cilantro for topping (optional)
- Drain water from tofu package. Slice into 1/2" pieces and press under a dish towel.
- Cube tofu.
- Put a pan on medium/high heat.
- Add peanut oil to pan. When hot, throw in tofu cubes and a pinch of salt.
- Cook for 10 minutes, flipping the pieces halfway through.
- Drain on a paper bag or paper towels. Let cool.
- Chop green onion into small slices.
- Use a mandoline to slice zucchini and carrot into slivers.
- Add green onion, zucchini and carrot to a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, mix peanut butter, tamari, sriracha, salt and olive oil. It should be more of a paste than a sauce.
- Mix paste in with vegetables.
- Spread paste on pre-made pizza crust.
- Top with tofu, daiya cheese and almond slivers.
- Swirl on sriracha for extra heat.
- Brush crust with olive oil. Cook per package instructions.
- Optional: Sprinkle with cilantro after it comes out of the oven.
The almonds give the pizza a nice crust, and the Thai flavors are really beautiful.
I like to swirl the sriracha, but you can get creative and make all sorts of patterns!!
This would be great even without the vegan cheese, but it definitely tied all the flavors together. This is my favorite pizza by far!
