Thai Chicken Pizza with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Thai Chicken Pizza with Spicy Peanut Sauce

I had been thinking about using a spicy Thai peanut sauce as the sauce on a pizza for a while and the Daring Bakers pizza dough challenge was the perfect opportunity. I was thinking that shrimp or chicken would go well on the pizza and I wanted some vegetables. As I do fairly often when trying to work out new recipes I tried searching the web for similar recipes. I quickly came across several recipes for Thai style pizzas with peanut sauce and several of them finished the pizza off with julienned carrots and bean sprouts. I liked the sound of that pizza though I was a little worried that the bean sprouts would be charred to oblivion in the oven. I need not have worried as they were still in great shape when they came out. The pizza crust was nice and golden brown and the cheese was melted and bubbling and the vegetables were still slightly crisp. I really really liked this pizza!! The spicy peanut sauce worked well on a pizza with cheese and vegetables. It added a ton of flavour and a nice amount of heat to the pizza. All of the vegetables on top of the pizza were a refreshing change and of course a pizza like this would not be complete without some fresh chopped cilantro.

Thai Chicken Pizza with Spicy Peanut Sauce


Ingredients:
1 pizza dough
1/2 cup peanut sauce
1 cup cooked chicken (torn into bite sized pieces)
1 carrot (julienned)
1 handful bean sprouts
2 green onions (chopped)
2 handfuls mozzarella cheese (grated)
1 handful peanuts (chopped)
1 handful cilantro (chopped)

Directions:
1. Spread the peanut sauce over the pizza dough.
2. Sprinkle the chicken, carrot, bean sprouts green onions, cheese and peanuts onto the pizza.
3. Bake in a preheated 500F oven until golden brown on top, about 5-10 minutes.
4. Sprinkle the cilantro on top of the pizza.

I love the CPK version of this, but I bet it is even better homemade.

Marjie said...

I just learned to make pizza dough this summer. I'm finding out that pizza doesn't mean "smothered in red sauce"! Yours is very pretty.

Ooh, what a great-looking pizza pie! While I'm usually a traditionalist when it comes to pizza, I am just loving the peanut sauce on this.

Now how did I know that only you could take an Italian dish and make it Thai. I have to admit, it does look pretty ok to me.

Manggy said...

Yeah, I totally thought of CPK too! I'd love to have a bite-- no cilantro for me, though, if you please :)

Thai + pizza = EPIC WIN.

I tried this using homemade pita bread and made a few little mini pizzas. It was spectacular. Thank you.

~Madeline~ said...

Thai Chicken Pizza is one of my very favorite pizzas. As a fellow Canadian I'm sure you're familiar with Boston Pizza. The only thing I ever order there is this pizza. I can't wait to make it a home!

Amber said...

This looks so good and different. You continue to amaze with your creativity.
Kevin, how do you get such crisp photos? My camera goes to 10 megapixels. Is that too much to use? Do you photograph close or far? Do you crop much? Your photos are always so perfectly sharp and bright. Thanks

Kevin said...

Amber: I am using a Canon XSI with 12 MPs and I am still using the kit lens that came with the camera. The best thing that I have done to improve my photos was to start using a lamp instead of the flash. I am also using a Lowel Ego lamp and really like it. I am using a tripod so it is more difficult to keep repositioning it to get the perfect shot so I tend to shoot large and then crop to the composition that I want. I generally take the photos from about a foot away from the food.

Peanut sauce on pizza? That's crazy and wonderful at the same time. The toppings look so fresh and inviting.

Deborah said...

I love Thai pizza, but have never made it myself. Now I'm going to have to!

This pizza looks great, what amazing color! Interesting use of peanut sauce, what a great idea. I wouldn't mind trying this pizza crust sometime.

Jaime said...

this is one of my all time favorite types of pizza. i would have it more often, but my husband doesn't like peanut sauce :(

Jonathan Gardner said...

I am looking forward to trying this one out. I love peanut sauce but I just need to convince my wife to give it a try.

Taira said...

Hey Kevin!

Was totally going to make this the other day, and then ended up improvising and turning it into a quesadilla! :) Ha...little different, but it actually turned out well! Here's a link:

How to cook chicken for this recipe?

Thanks.

Kevin said...

Anonymous: I usually just use leftover cooked chicken in recipes like this one as it is quick and easy. When I roast a chicken I almost always shred the leftovers and freeze them for uses like this. If you do not have the leftover chicken on hand you can cook it however you like. You could grill it, pan fry it, roast it, or even poach it. I would take the opportunity to add a bit of flavour by marinating the chicken in some, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, and cilantro for an hour before grilling it or pan frying it until cooked, about 3-5 minutes per side.

Margaret said...

I've made this twice in the last 2 weeks...I use Naan bread for a quick pizza crust. Love your blog!

Yaoli said...

AMAZING! I'm eating it right now :D My first time making pizza and it was a great success. I don't know what I like more now, the pizza or the enchiladas! Better than any gourmet restaurant!
