THAI PIZZA

Posted on

I could eat sweet spicy peanut sauce on anything and everything. Besides eating it with Vegetable Spring Rolls, I have made it into a thicker sauce in Thai Pinwheels. When I can find new ways to eat it, I do. So I thought, why not make a Thai Pizza with peanut sauce. What a great idea, indeed!
This pizza has all the components of vegetable spring rolls: red pepper, carrots, and cilantro. Add some ginger garlic tofu, a pizza crust, and voilà; Thai Pizza is born. This could be eaten hot or cold. I remember days of eating cold pizza for breakfast. I have not done that in years, but this could work for that. I personally liked it hot better.

  4. 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.
