Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place oven rack in the lowest position; preheat to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Roll out or stretch dough on a lightly floured surface into a rough 16-inch oval. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake on the bottom rack until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and garlic in a small bowl until well combined.

  • Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add bell pepper, scallions and 1 tablespoon of the peanut sauce to the chicken; toss to combine.

  • Remove the crust from the oven; spread evenly with the remaining peanut sauce. Top with the chicken mixture, then sprinkle with cheese. Return the pizza to the oven and bake on the bottom rack until the crust is crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 11 to 13 minutes.

Tips

Shopping Tip: Look for balls of whole-wheat pizza dough, fresh or frozen, at your supermarket. Choose a brand without hydrogenated oils.

Definitely worth making The combination of flavors is excellent but I doubled the ingredients in the sauce to make it tastier. Two cloves of garlic several more teaspoons of soy sauce vinegar (I used apple cidar) more ginger. I used gluten-free pizza dough (found in the frozen pizza section of Whole Foods) and hand-stretched Burlington Vermont Mozzarella. I topped with chopped parsley. Next time I will top with chopped basil as well. Read More

Peanut sauce yum Ok since I changed it a bit by adding madras curry to the chicken and pepper plus I forgot to buy bell pepper so I used apple and raisins instead I wouldn't say I made this pizza but the peanut sauce was really good!! Read More

Yummy and easy This was quick and easy to make for a lunch - served with tossed salads. Used a store-bought multigrain pizza dough that was phenomenal. I did salt and pepper the chicken out of habit and I'm glad I did - I think the peanut sauce could have used a little more salt even with the soy sauce. That is my only complaint! Pros: Easy quick tasty Read More

So-So Quick and easy to do. I followed the recipe exactly and found it had some strong flavors but something about the combination. I felt like it didn't really come together in taste and could have used something to spice it up a bit. Probably will not make this again. Pros: Easy to make Quick Cons: Didn't taste that great. Really doesn't taste like thai food. Read More

Delicious twist on pizza my family loved it. Added fresh basil caramelized red onions chopped jalapeños and red chili flakes (we like heat) to the finished pizza. Can't vouch for peanut sauce I used leftover from another recipe. Will make again. Read More

I looked at the ingredients and I can't workout what makes it taste 'Thai'? Maybe ginger but then its ginger chicken. If it had Thai holy or sweet basil lemon grass or coriander it might taste more Thai. Read More

Awesome Flavor and Easy to Make Hardest part was cooking the chicken so big plus there. Modified the recipe slightly using premade Pilsbury pizza crust for ease of prep and availability added oregano (digressing from the "Thai" theme a bit) and black pepper on my chicken while cooking to give it a little more flavor used yellow and green onions instead of scallions (being hard to find around my area) and also used red AND yellow bell peppers for more color. Overall it turned out really well and I received a lot of compliments. Most of the enjoyment came from the uniqueness and variety of flavors especially the ginger and peanut butter. Definitely making it again! Pros: Flavor Easy to Make Unique Customizable Read More
