Cooking Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cut tofu in half through its thick side. Then make a diagonal cut through each half, so you have four triangles. Add tofu and tapioca starch to a plastic bag and lightly shake to coat the wedges.
  • Heat half the oil to medium high heat in a 10-inch skillet. Add two pieces of the tofu, cook for 4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 4 minutes. This will get the outer surface lightly browned. Remove, and set these two pieces aside. Add remaining oil and repeat with remaining wedges.
  • Place tofu on a parchment lined paper, brush with pizza sauce, then add a few cherry tomatoes to each, and then distribute cheese evenly on slices. Bake for 13-15 minutes in oven, until cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove and top with fresh basil.
