Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger (or 1/2 tsp ground ginger)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha (or more for extra heat)
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2-3 tablespoons water (for desired consistency)

Thai Chicken:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1/4 cup peanut sauce (from the prepared sauce above)

Pizza:

  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough (or your favorite homemade recipe)
  • Cornmeal (for dusting)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

1. Make the Peanut Sauce:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all peanut sauce ingredients.
  • Adjust the amount of water to achieve your desired consistency.
  • Set aside.

2. Prepare the Thai Chicken

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add cubed chicken and cook until browned and cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from the skillet. Add 1/4 cup of the peanut sauce and toss chicken to coat.

3. Assemble the Pizza:

  • Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Prepare a baking sheet or pizza stone with a light dusting of cornmeal.
  • Roll out or stretch your pizza dough to your desired size and thickness. Place on the prepared baking surface.
  • Spread a thin layer of peanut sauce over the dough, leaving a slight border for the crust.
  • Top with an even layer of mozzarella cheese.
  • Distribute the Thai chicken, carrots, bean sprouts, and green onions over the cheese.
  • Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

4. Bake the Pizza:

  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

5. Garnish and Serve:

  • Remove pizza from the oven and sprinkle with fresh cilantro.
  • Slice and serve immediately.

Tips:

  • Customization: Add julienned red bell pepper for extra sweetness and color.
  • Spice Level: Adjust Sriracha to your liking.
  • Homemade Dough: If you’re making your own dough, make sure to give it enough time to rise!
  • Leftovers: Leftover pizza keeps well in the fridge for a few days. Reheat slices in the oven or a toaster oven for the best texture.
