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.

I love the CPK version of this, but I bet it is even better homemade.
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.
javagirlkt's cookin' says
mmmmm, this looks just like the version from california pizza kitchen that i LOVE, only actually a little bit better! yum! 🙂
SPICY PEANUT SAUCE?!!??!?!?! Heavenly!!! So fun for a pizza.
Wow what an aweseome looking pizza u have made Kevin.Ur version sounds excellent, Spicy peanut sauce is too good.
Oh, this looks really delicious! Great looking pizzas!
The raw crunchy vegetables on top make this sound fantastic! I have to try this minus the cheese.
maybelle's mom says
I love the crunchy veg on top. good job.
This looks really good. I would have never thought of making a Thai pizza. I am impressed.
beautiful pizza kevin! i will have to try to make this type of pizza at some point!
Spicy peanut sauce is always been my favorite, though I never really thought of putting it on my pizza. It does sounds delicious, and after seeing all of those topping, it makes want to try it myself. Cheers, Elra
Great idea Kevin and it looks fantastic. You have a good eye for good recipes.
I love the CPK version too, this looks so much better!
Mochachocolata Rita says
brilliant idea! i’ll be pick off the fresh sprouts though (i only like them when they are wilted and overcooked sob sob)
Mrs Ergül says
I totally love the idea of turning a Thai classic dish into a pizza topping! So yummy looking too!
That sauce has intrigued me. I gotta try it 😀
Dana McCauley says
I didn’t love this dough either. YOur pizza combo sounds great though!
What a great topping. I love how your pizza turned out.
Kevin, that looks scrumptious!
Another great challenge, Kevin. I love the toppings.
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.
Yeah, I totally thought of CPK too! I’d love to have a bite– no cilantro for me, though, if you please 🙂
Marc @ NoRecipes says
Nice! this is my favourite pizza at CPK. Your version looks better.
Scott Beveridge says
hmmm…. an interesting, extremely unconventional take on pizza
What an ineteresting pizza topping. As for the perfect circle, this is what I say: never trust a perfectly round pizza…. Mine never comes out round, and it always tastes great!
Yummy looking pizza. I like all the veggies!
Wow Kevin! This is beautiful and it looks so delicious. Excellent photos.
That looks SO good! It’s my favorite pizza at CPK too. I will definatly have to try this sometime.
I think I love this…and it seems fairly easy to do the dough…
Gretchen Noelle says
Wonderful looking pizza. Great idea!

Rosa's Yummy Yums says
Wow, what a gorgeous pizza! I love your choice of toppings! Very unusual and flavorful!
Chocolate Shavings says
Wow, what a pizza!
Kevin, I was thinking about spicy peanut pizza too – there is this sandwich join, Schlotzsky’s in the States (maybe in Canada too?) and I have always loved their Thai pizza. You did such a great job, like always! 🙂
I’ll take a slice!!!!!!!
Jennifer Field says
Hi there! I just found your blog when searching for a picture of “white chili” to use on one of my pages. I used your picture of “turkey white chili” and put a link to your site giving you credit. Please take a look at http://www.squidoo.com/intuitivechili/ to see the pic and link. Let me know if you’re pleased or if you’d like me to remove it. Thanks–and the chili looks lovely:-)
Proud Italian Cook says
I knew you’d do something unique! It looks so colorful and delicious!
This Thai pizza is the stuff that dreams are made of!! It looks incredibly delicious, and I have the recipes all printed out to try the next time around. Thanks! This was a fun challenge.
This is so cool! I would love to try it!

That is one beautiful and colorfull piazza with some of my favorite flavor combinations. Great!

Thai pizza is one of my favorite variations when I make pizzas at home. I also like it with some scallions and red peppers. Yum!

Keep the good work go..
Looks good…..very different way to have pizza. I would love a slice for lunch right now!
You’ve brought pizza to a new lovel. The toppings and sauce are fabulous!

Yours look amazing, peanut sauce for pizza? What a great idea! :)))
Happy Halloween Kevin, Margot
I need to stop reading your blog right after I’ve eaten. You’re making me gain weight, since looking at this makes me hungry again! 😉
I had this at a restaurant in San Francisco and it was so yummy. Yours looks incredible appealing as well!
Rindy R says
I LOVE this type of pizza! Can’t wait to try this recipe out. Thanks for sharing!
Darius T. Williams says
Great pizza idea sir – absolutely great!
Thai + pizza = EPIC WIN.
I tried this using homemade pita bread and made a few little mini pizzas. It was spectacular. Thank you.
Thanks you for making a comment after actually trying it! I get frustrated with comments about how good something looks. (We can all see that!) I want to hear from people who have tried it.
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!
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
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.
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.
you’re so creative… i can just imagine how the flavors blending in a pizza… 🙂
This is the kind of pizza I can get into!!!
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 says
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.
I just discovered your blog this week and we have already had your parmesan zucchini sticks, greek zucchini fritters and tonight we had the pizza…we've been eating like you this week!!! We absolutely love your recipes and will definitely be back for more! Thanks so much!!!!
I love your blog! I found it when looking for a Thai Chicken Pizza recipe. BTW…..the pizza was a huge hit! Thank you.
ali @ gimme some oven says
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:
Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂
How to cook chicken for this recipe?
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.
I've made this twice in the last 2 weeks…I use Naan bread for a quick pizza crust. Love your blog!
AMAZING! I'm eating it right now 😀 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!
I love making this recipe. It's so delicious! I'm sharing it on my blog's facebook page today.
hello chef, i just stubble on your page, all your foodies looks so so amazing=) I am baking this right now. cant wait to eat it!!! thank you so much.. I'm very impress with your thai dishes… I'm thai and yours looks fantastic
