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. Pat tofu dry and dice into cubes,
Transfer tofu to a large bowl or zipper bag and toss it in cornstarch, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
In a nonstick frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu, and cook for approximately 10 minutes, turning occasionally until tofu is golden, Once cooked, remove from heat and pour over barbecue sauce to evenly coat.
Preheat the oven to 450°F.
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 mozzarella cheese.
Bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.
Garnish with cilantro and enjoy immediately.
