Thai Chicken Pizza

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Kelly and I made the desserts for a bridal shower for one of Kelly’s friends. We made about 75 cupcakes, caramel espresso bars, cake balls, cookies, and oreo truffles. It was a lot of work but it was fun too. We even had our Dad make a 4 tier cupcake stand out of plywood. Hopefully, we will have some pictures soon. I think it was a success. We tried a lot of new recipes in preparation for this event and unfortunately many of them were fails. But we ended up with a pretty good assortment of desserts for the shower.

Have any of you had the Thai chicken pizza from California Pizza Kitchen? I always order Thai chicken pizza when we go there so I decided I needed to try to copy the recipe. This is what I came up with. You can make this recipe as easy or difficult as you’d like. You can buy already made pizza crust and peanut sauce or you can make your own. You can cook a chicken breast, buy a rotisserie chicken or use leftover chicken. Not everything has to be difficult, it is o.k. to take shortcuts sometimes. This isn’t a pizza we make very often, but when we do, I always wonder why I don’t make it more often. It is a good change of pace from our usual pepperoni and mushroom pizza. Plus, it is a good way to incorporate some vegetables and protein.

Here is what you’ll need

Roll out the pizza dough nice and thin

Cover the crust with peanut sauce

Top with chicken

And carrots and bean sprouts. Don’t skimp on the vegetables.

Top with shredded mozzarella cheese

Bake for about 12 minutes until it is bubbly and golden brown

Why go out to dinner when you can make this at home?
