Thai Chicken Pizza with Peanut Sauce


  • for the sauce (makes enough to sauce 2 pizzas!):
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic chili paste or chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger (or 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger)
  • 2-3 teaspoons soy sauce
  • for each pizza:
  • 1-2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews or peanuts
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili oil


  1. Preheat the oven (and your pizza stone) to 500ºF.  *See my Perfect Pizza Dough recipe for more directions on making your own restaurant-style dough!
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients until smooth and combined.  If it's too thick, you can add a touch of hot water to thin it out.  Taste and adjust the seasonings to taste.  (Remember, the flavors of the pizza toppings will round out the peanut sauce flavor!).  Toss the chicken with a few tablespoons of the sauce and set aside.
  3. Shape your dough into a large round.  (If you'd like, brush a little bit of olive oil around the edge for the crust).   Spread some of the sauce onto the center of the pizza.  Sprinkle 1 cup or so of the shredded mozzarella over the sauce.  Sprinkle the chicken, onion & pepper evenly over the top.  (You can also add some shredded carrots here too...  Yum!). 
  4. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top (as much as you'd like!) and place onto your baking stone in the preheated and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden.
  5. When the pizza is done to your liking, remove from the oven and top with the fresh chopped herbs, the chopped nuts and drizzle lightly with the sweet chili oil.
