Homemade pizza is a favorite in our house but we usually stick to pepperoni, supreme, or BBQ chicken. As I am a Thai food aficionado, I thought I would try a Thai Chicken Pizza-- it quickly became a new favorite! I've seen many different recipes, so here is my combination:
*1 large pizza crust (find recipe here)
3 heaping Tbs. chunky peanut butter
2 tsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. of crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 Tbs. chopped green onion
4 Chicken tenders
1-2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbs. olive oil
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
3/4 cup Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
In food processor or blender, combine peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, red pepper flakes, ginger, honey and sesame oil. Set aside.
Season chicken with salt and cayenne pepper and saute in olive oil until no longer pink.
Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and coat with 2 tablespoons of the peanut sauce.
Spread peanut sauce over the surface of your homemade pizza crust.
Scatter chicken pieces over top and sprinkle with green onions. Sprinkle with cheeses.
Bake in 500°F oven for 6-8 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with shredded carrot and cilantro (and bean sprouts if desired).
