Thai Chicken Pizza

As you may know.....pizza is my favorite food. 
I could eat it everyday.
  At Christmas I got THIS pizza maker.
(It is also on sale HERE)
We have been making pizza for dinner a few times a month since we got it! 
I have been experimenting with different pizza toppings/recipes and there have been some REALLY good ones!
Once a month I share a new pizza recipe with you.
You don't need the pizza maker (you can use your oven) but I am letting you know that using this pizza maker gives your pizza an authentic pizzeria taste! 
I am planning on sharing a new pizza recipe every month.
Today's recipe is another one of my favorites....Thai Chicken Pizza!
Here is what you need:
 For the Sauce:
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoons water

For the pizza:
1 pizza dough (I use pre-made dough from Safeway or Trader Joes.  I like Safeway's better because it so much easier to work with & tastes better! You can make your own dough, but when the pre-made dough is only $1.50, this is a no brainer!
 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 chicken breast, cooked & cut up into cubes or shredded
4 scallions/green onions, sliced thinly
14 cup white bean sprouts
14 cup shredded carrots
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


Directions:
You are going to make your sauce, but before you do that, boil some water to cook your chicken.
This recipe just calls for 1 chicken breast, so you can boil it & then slice it into cubes.
Combine sauce ingredients in a small pan over medium heat.
Stir ingredients together & let simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.
After your sauce & chicken are done, take about 1/2 of the sauce & mix it in with the chopped up chicken:
Now, it's time to roll out your dough.
If using the Pizza maker, I split the dough in half and then roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface & then I put my dough on a piece of parchment paper. 
I cook it on the parchment paper for a few minutes because then I can slide the pizza off the parchment paper without messing up the crust or making all the toppings slide off. I like cooking it without the parchment paper because then it gives the crust a pizzeria taste! If I had a pizza peel, I wouldn't need to have the parchment paper because then I would have the pizza peel to transfer the pizza to and from the pizza cooker...but I don't have one of those yet.
Add the other 1/2 of the sauce to the dough:
 Sprinkle on the cheese: 
Add the chicken:

Add bean sprouts & chopped green onions:
Add shredded carrots:
Sprinkle on more cheese:
Bake in your pizza oven (or regular oven at 450 degrees) for 8-10 minutes 
(I bake mine on parchment paper for 5 minutes & then slide it off the parchment paper & bake it on the pizza stone)

Sprinkle fresh chopped cilantro over pizza:
Slice & Enjoy!
California Pizza Kitchen also has a Thai Chicken Pizza & they put chopped peanuts on top, so you could do that as well if you wanted a little crunch.
I like this pizza because it is different than your traditional pizza.

The sauce really makes it..it is full of flavor!
Yum!

I hope you like this pizza as much as I do!
