Tofu Stir-fry

Tofu:

3 tbsp cornstarch

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!

To assemble the pizza, roll the dough into desired thickness and shape.
