Thai Chicken Pizza


This pizza is incredible. Reminds me of one of my favorite "out-to eat" meals.

Thai Chicken Pizza
From Rachael Ray's Book of 10


1 pizza dough (we used store bought)
1/2 cup duck sauce or plum sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cups (10 oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Tamari
1 rounded tablespoonful peanut butter
2 teaspoons hot sauce
2 teaspoons grill seasoning
4 chicken breast cutlets, 1/2 pound
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 seedless cucumber, peeled and cut into matchsticks
4 scallions, chopped
1 cup bean spouts
Palm full cilantro leaves, chopped
1/4 cup chopped peanuts, 2 ounces

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Form pizza crust on pizza pan or cookie sheet. Top with duck or plum sauce - spread it around like you would pizza sauce. Sprinkle the pizza with some crushed red pepper flakes then top with cheese and peppers. Bake until golden and bubbly, 15 to 17 minutes.

Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Combine vegetable oil, soy sauce and peanut butter with hot sauce and grill seasoning. Use the microwave to loosen up peanut butter if it is too cold to blend into sauce, about 10 seconds. Add chicken and coat evenly with mixture. Let stand 10 minutes then grill chicken cutlets 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until firm. Slice chicken into very thin strips.

While chicken cooks, mix honey and vinegar and add the cucumber. Turn to coat evenly.

Top the hot, cooked pizza with chicken, scallions, sprouts and cilantro. Drain cucumbers and scatter over the pizza. Garnish pizza with peanuts, cut into 8 wedges and serve.

You may remember that my sweet husband doesn't eat most meats. We brushed a fillet of smoked salmon with a little of the marinade, grilled it a minute to seal in the flavor, and topped a pizza for him.

Just curios - what kind of dough did you buy? I saw bread dough at Harmon's today and almost bought some but chickened out.

Your pizza looks amazing and makes me want to make some. Tonight. Right now.

Made this tonight, PLEASANTLY surprised at how good it was (didn't know what to expect as I don't go to CPK). I used jarred roasted red peppers and a sweet and sour version of the sauce. So good!
