Guest Post: Thai Tofu Pizza

Hi Bran Appetit’ers!

My name is Kristin and I write the food, running and travel blog Iowa Girl Eats. Some of my very favorite things to cook are Asian and Thai influenced dishes, which not only have to be delicious, but easy to make, too! My flavorful, yet simple, Thai Tofu Pizza combines pre-made pizza crust with a rich peanut suace, fresh veggies and a burst of sweet mango. So quick and tasty that it won a Nasoya Tofu recipe contest in May 2010. Hope you enjoy!
