Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza Recipe

Ingredients:

For the Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha (more if you crave extra spice)
  • 2-4 tablespoons warm water (for desired consistency)

For the Pizza:

  • 2 large flatbreads (naan, pita, or store-bought pizza crust)
  • 1 pound cooked chicken, shredded or diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Equipment:

  • Large skillet
  • Whisk or mixing bowl
  • Baking sheet

Instructions

Make the Peanut Sauce:

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, ginger, garlic, and Sriracha.
  • Gradually add warm water, whisking constantly, until you reach a smooth, slightly drizzly consistency.

Prepare the Pizza:

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Place the flatbreads on a baking sheet.
  • Warm the peanut sauce slightly if it has thickened. Spread a generous layer of sauce over each flatbread.
  • Top with shredded chicken, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese (if using), red bell pepper, carrots, and green onions.

Bake and Garnish:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheeses are melted and bubbly and the edges of the flatbread are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro and chopped peanuts.

Tips:

  • Customize it! Add other toppings like a drizzle of sweet chili sauce, mango slices, bean sprouts, or a squeeze of lime.
  • Grill it! For a smoky flavor, grill the flatbreads over medium heat for a few minutes per side before adding toppings and baking.
  • Make it vegetarian! Substitute the chicken with crispy tofu or your favorite vegetables.
