Thai Chicken Pizza

Thai Chicken Pizza (Adapted from Eating Well)

16-20 ounces whole wheat pizza dough (I used my favorite recipe)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon canola oil
8 ounces boneless/skinless chicken breast, diced
1 cup diced red bell pepper
4 green onions, thinly sliced
4 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450 with the rack placed on the lowest position.

Stretch dough on a lightly floured surface into a rough 16" oval. Carefully move dough over to a baking sheet lightly coated with nonstick spray. Place in the oven and bake until lightly crisped on the bottom, about 8 to 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and garlic.

In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season chicken lightly with salt and fresh ground pepper to taste - add chicken and cook, stirring, until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes. Scoop mixture into a medium bowl and toss together with the bell pepper, scallions and 1 tablespoon of the peanut sauce.

Remove the crust from the oven and evenly spread the remaining peanut sauce over the top. Scatter with the chicken mixture and then sprinkle with cheese. Place the pizza back in the oven and continue to bake until the cheese is melted and the crust has fully baked - about 8-14 minutes.

Makes 4-6 servings.

  1. Now THAT sounds good :) And obviously you're tummy troubles have gone away!

    Thanks for posting the review- this is definately going into my dinner plans later this week!

  2. Now THAT looks good! I really need to start using more recipes out of Eating Well- love them!

    And I can assume your stomach is 100% better if you're throwing Thai spices at it! ;)

    Thanks for the review- I just put this on the menu for dinner later this week!

  3. My roommate just introduced me to Eating Well - they have some good recipes in there. I will have to check out this recipe! Thanks!

  4. Elizabeth - Yep, back to normal again finally!

    Lizzy - I've grown fond of Eating Well as of late, but I find I'm marking less and less recipes to try.

  5. Fantastic! I got to this page through slashfood. I'll be making this and taking pictures.

  6. Saw this yesterday in Joanne L's post over on Slashfood. It is delicious (made it today for lunch). My husband is also a fan of Thai food - we both loved the recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  7. This recipe is delicious. Definitely use the dough recipe referenced here as well - so good. My husband usually likes the thick crusted pizzas but raved about this one (and it's whole wheat!). The pizza is also really good the next day if you have any left.

  8. Awesome Karin - Glad you liked the recipe!

  9. I just made this for a Saturday afternoon lunch, and I thought it was great and SO easy to throw together! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Joe!

  10. Elisabeth - Glad you got to try the recipe! We need to make this one again too!

  11. I have to say that I am so thrilled to have a successful pizza dough. Wow. This will be a staple in our house, so fun and my kids loved waiting for the dough to rise.
    Everyone loved it, even my 3 year old girl.
    I am so happy I happened upon your sight looking for a Thai Pizza recipe yesterday. :) You are now in my faves and I already have a couple of your recipes planned for the week. Whoo hoo.

  12. Kandice - Fantastic! Glad you liked the results!
