Thai Chicken Pizza- An Old Favorite Now Easier to Make

This recipe has personally been one of my favorites since I originally created it in 2018.

However, as was typical of recipes that I cooked in my days before marriage and children, it involved a lengthy multi-step cooking process, and too many dirty dishes.

I recently set out to simplify the cooking process without compromising any of the amazing flavor.

My goal with this pizza is a super flavorful sweet, savory, salty, and spicy pizza without any of the sugar, soy, or MSG that I found in most Thai pizza recipes (which include sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, etc). 

One shortcut that makes this pizza easy is using whole wheat tortillas as personal-sized pizza crusts.  Of course, any other kind of pizza crust can be used as well.  This recipe will make enough sauce and toppings for 4 tortilla-sized pizzas.

Thai Chicken Pizza

For the pizza sauce:

  • 3 T. peanut butter
  • 3 T. honey
  • 2 T. sesame oil
  • 2 T. coconut aminos (this replaces common soy sauce)
  • 1 T. Thai curry paste
  • 1 T. rice vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger (see my secret ginger trick here)
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Whisk all sauce ingredients thoroughly and set aside.

Assemble the pizza:

  • 4 tortillas or your favorite pizza crust
  • Thai pizza sauce
  • 2 cups precooked chicken pieces
  • 1 tomato, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1 bell pepper (or anaheims or jalapenos for a spicy pizza)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Thai basil or cilantro for garnish
  • Green onions for garnish

Spread pizza sauce evenly on pizza crusts.
Top with chicken, tomatoes, peppers, and cheese.
Bake at 425 for about 10-15 minutes until done to your liking.
Garnish with green onions and Thai basil or cilantro before serving.
Devour!
