Thai Chicken Pizza


Get ready for your new favorite pizza, for real.  This pizza is off the hook good,  bursting with so many different flavor combos.  My mouth is watering just looking at it. You can save time by buying a premade pizza dough.  We just called our local pizza shop and picked up a ball of dough from there which was so easy.   This was such a light, fun spin on pizza.  The combination of the chicken, zucchini, chili sauce,  and mozzarella was amazing.  Don't be afraid of the crushed peanuts on top they give the pizza a great crunch and Thai flavor.   We of course drizzled sriracha over the top which gave it some extra heat- so I highly recommend that if you like things spicy.   I would eat this every week if I could.

**This called for the pizza to be cooked on a pizza stone but we used a round pizza pan and it worked just fine**

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Batch Of Your Favorite Pizza Dough, Rolled Out To About A 1/4 Inch, 12 Inch Diameter
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Fine Corn Meal (We never used the corn meal)
  • ½ cups Sweet Asian Chili Sauce, Plus 1 Tablespoon For Drizzle
  • 1 whole Shallot, Thinly Sliced
  • ½ whole Zucchini, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
  • 1 cup Cooked Chicken Shredded
  • ⅔ cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • ¼ cups Chopped Peanuts
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Basil (optional) 
  •  Sriracha for drizzling
    Preparation Instructions Preheat your oven to 500 degrees F with a pizza stone in the oven. If you do not have a pizza stone, put a large baking sheet in the oven (make sure to use one that is large enough to house your dough).

    Begin by adding some flour to your rolling surface. Take your dough that has already risen, and lightly knead it. Roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch thick, or however your like the thickness of your crust.

    Lay the dough down on a pizza peel (if you have one) that’s covered with corn meal. Otherwise put the dough on a surface that you can use to slide the entire pizza onto the hot pizza stone or pan. The corn meal helps assist with the pizza dough – so it slides off easily.

    Spread the Asian chili sauce on the surface of the dough. Not too thick, not too thin. Add the sliced shallots and zucchini. Top with the red chili flakes and shredded chicken. Top with the cheese.

    Using your pizza peel, place the pizza into the oven on your cooking surface (stone or pan) and cook for about 15 minutes, keeping an eye on your crust and toppings so they do not burn. Every oven is different.

    Once the pizza dough is golden around the edges and the cheese is nice and bubbly, remove pizza from the oven.

    Drizzle more of the Asian chili sauce over the top, top with the crushed peanuts and fresh cilantro and fresh basil.
