Thai Chicken Pizza

The Classic Cup is one of my families favorite restaurants in Kansas City. My mom and I absolutely love their Thai Chicken Pizza. I like just about anything with Thai flavors but Thai pizza, that's pretty hard to beat! Brady and I made our own Thai Chicken Pizza this past Sunday and it was delicious. I thought it tasted just like the Thai pizza at the Classic Cup.

The ingredient list below might look long, there are a lot of sauce ingredients, but if you cook Asian food occasionally you will most likely already have the majority of the ingredients. The only thing that I didn't have was the Oyster Sauce. The peanut sauce on this pizza is amazing though and worth buying a few extra ingredients if you don't have them on hand already. I honestly could have eaten the sauce with the spoon and it definitely took some restraint for us to not polish off the entire pizza in one sitting!

Serves 3-4
Prep/Cook Time: 30 minutes

Sauce Ingredients
1/2 cup peanut butter (i used Natural Smooth PB)
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves minced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sriracha (or hot chili sauce)
1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
1/2 cup boiling water (may not need this if you use Natural PB)

Pizza Toppings
pizza dough- I recommend Pillsbury or Trader Joes 
2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 red pepper, diced
2 carrots, shredded or diced
1/2 c. mung beans
3-4 green onions, sliced
1 c. Monterey Jack or Mozzarella cheese
handful cilantro
1 lime, cut into wedges

Combine all sauce ingredients except the boiling water in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium high heat and stir until smooth. If the sauce is too thick add in boiling water until desired consistency is reached.

Heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet and cook the chicken pieces.  Meanwhile prepare the vegetables, red pepper through green onions.

Spray a large baking sheet or pizza pan with PAM. Spread out the pizza dough. Cover the pizza with sauce (you probably wont need all of the sauce), chicken, vegetables and cheese. Bake the pizza according to your dough directions, about 15 minutes for most pizza dough varieties. Garnish pizza with cilantro and serve with a lime wedge.
