Tofu Stir-fry

Tofu:

1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated

To remove excess moisture from tofu, place tofu on a paper towel lined plate or cutting board. Weigh tofu down with a heavy skillet. Let sit for at least 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, pat the tofu dry and dice it into cubes.
Place tofu in a large zipper bag and toss with cornstarch and salt and pepper to taste.
To cook, heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add tofu and cook until golden brown.
Once cooked, remove from heat and set aside.
In the same skillet or wok, add a little more oil and add carrots, broccoli and red pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add cabbage and snap peas. Cool for another minutes and add sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes then add tofu. Cook until completely heated through then enjoy!

2/3c diced pineapple
1/4 cup red onion, finely sliced

Toss tofu in cornstarch, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
In a large pan over medium-high heat, add oil.

Once cooked, remove from heat and pour over barbecue sauce to evenly coat.

To assemble the pizza, roll the dough into desired thickness and shape. 
Place on large pizza pan.
Spread remaining barbecue sauce over pizza in a thin layer.
Top with tofu, pineapple, red onion and finish with cheese.
