Thai Chicken Pizza with Sweet Chili Sauce

Thai Chicken Pizza with Sweet Chili Sauce

With all of the experimenting that I have been doing with pizzas over the years, the Thai chicken pizza with spicy peanut sauce is one of my favourites. I mean the spicy peanut sauce is surely one of the most addictive substances that I have come across and if you it with ooey gooey melted cheese on a pizza you get something truly irresistible! I was recently reminded of the Thai chicken pizza with spicy peanut sauce when I came across some thing similar, a Thai chicken pizza with sweet chili sauce on How Sweet Eats and I knew immediately that I would have to make it!

Thai Chicken Pizza with Sweet Chili Sauce

Although sweet chili sauce is not as addictive as the spicy peanut sauce it comes close and I often find myself eating it by the spoonful. I could easily see the sweet chili sauce working really well as the sauce on a pizza and I could not wait to try it out! Another thing that I really like about these Thai style pizzas is topping them with fresh ingredients including plenty of herbs after they come out of the oven. Although I was seriously tempted to go with shrimp for this pizza, chicken won out at the last minute and I rounded the toppings off with some sliced red pepper and julienned carrot. For the toppings added after baking, I went with bean sprouts, basil, cilantro and chopped peanuts.

Tip: It is actually really easy to make your own sweet chili sauce at home, though if you want to save time the store bought ones will work just as well.

Looks wonderful, but a bit too spicy for me.

P.S. "surly" should be "surely".

Oh, Imma make this! My boyfriend (and all my friends) loved the kimchi pizza (and quesadillas) that I made with your recipe(s), but he adores Thai peanut sauce! Yay! I wish brownie points were transferable cause I definitely owe you some!

Pam said...

I need to make this one ASAP. Love it.

Kitty said...

Just made it and it was delish! When do you suggest putting the red peppers on? Before or after the cheese? Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Kevin said...

Kitty: I like to place the ingredients on top of the cheese so that they can be seen and get slightly charred on the edges when baking.

Anneke said...

This looks very yummy and healthier than my usual attempts. :)

Delicious new twist on pizza night! My only suggestion (warning) is not to overdo the sweet chili sauce like I did - stick to the recommended amount or else it will ooze everything. We enjoyed it nonetheless!
