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.

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

Enjoyed by our multi-cultural family This was on a very low calorie diet. We added 15 basil leaves. I would next time add red pepper flakes and a teaspoon more sesame oil to the sauce. I was sure this would be absolutely terrible and I think it might have frightened my Norwegian husband but he and my American teens really liked it. Great when served with the Bok Choy slaw. They now want it weekly! Pros: Tasted great Cons: Not exactly the most Thai flavor Read More

Fast & delicious This pizza tastes much like Thai pizzas we have had in restaurants which we love. I added leftover broccoli and pineapple to the toppings which only added to the nutritional value & the lovely colors. I don't have fresh basil right now but next time I think I'll go ahead & add dry basil. I made my own whole wheat pizza crust which is really fast using the new pizza crust yeast. Pros: quick nutritious looks & tastes great Read More

Thai pizza? The flavors in this pizza were okay but they weren't even Thai. This isn't even a good peanut sauce recipe. Won't be making this again. Read More

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

My husband and I tried this recipe tonight and it was so easy and so delicious. This will become a weekly favorite. We could not believe how quick this was to make especially if you have your chicken pre-cooked. We used the Trader Joe's whole wheat pizza dough and it turned out perfect!!! 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

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

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
