CPK's Thai Chicken Pizza

Don't let the hefty ingredient load keep you from making this pizza - it was hands-down one of our very favorite. And pretty dang close to CPK's version, if I do say so myself!(Yields 2 small-medium sized pizzas - combine for 1 larger pizza)

Spicy peanut sauce

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

1 tablespoon honey

2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

2 teaspoons minced ginger (I used 1/4 tsp. powdered ginger)

2 minced garlic cloves

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon vietnamese chili sauce ( or dried chili flakes)

1 tablespoon oyster sauce (I didn't have this and left it out)

2 tablespoons water

Thai chicken pieces

1 tablespoon olive oil

10 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4 inch cubes

For the pizza

1 pizza dough recipe

cornmeal or flour, for handling

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

4 scallions, slivered diagonally

1/2 cup white bean sprouts

1/4 cup shredded carrots

2 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


Combine sauce ingredients in a small pan over medium heat.

Bring the sauce to a boil; boil gently for one minute.

Divide into 2 portions for use on chicken and pizza; set aside.

To make Thai chicken: Cook the chicken in olive oil over med-high heat, stirring, until just cooked; 5 to 6 minutes do not overcook.

Set aside in refrigerator until chilled through.

Once chilled, coat the chicken with 1/4 cup sauce.

Set aside in refrigerator.

To make the pizza: Use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup sauce evenly over pizza dough within the rim.

Cover sauce with 3/4 cup cheese.

Distribute half the chicken pieces over the cheese followed by half the green onions, bean sprouts, and carrots, respectively.

Sprinkle an additional 1/4cup cheese over the toppings and top the pizza with 1 TBSP chopped peanuts.

Transfer the pizza to oven; bake until crisp and golden and the cheese is bubbly, 9 to 10 minute.

When cooked through, remove pizza from oven.

Sprinkle 1TBSP chopped cilantro over the hot cheesy surface.

Repeat with remaining ingredients for a second pizza.
