Pizza Friday: Thai Chicken Sweet Chili Sauce Pizza

Wait, pizza with sweet chili sauce..um, YES!  Considering that I love pizza (obviously) and Thai food, it was a no-brainer when I saw Closet Cooking’s recipe for Thai Chicken Pizza with Sweet Chili Sauce. I’ve seen various recipes for a Thai pizza, some with sweet chili sauce, and some with peanut sauce.  Since I just had peanut sauce in one of my recipes last week (see my post 5 Quinoa Recipes To Try Today) I thought it would be good to change it up a bit.  (Plus I’m running low on peanut butter. I might have had some stressful moments this week that resulted in me, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and a spoon.  Yep, it was as delicious as it sounds!)

This was a good recipe to use up some of the veggies we had in the house before they went bad.  Some purple cabbage, red bell pepper, and carrots made for a colorful pizza and a good dose of veggies.  I wasn’t convinced my 4-year-old would eat it, but she actually ate an entire piece, only throwing a few red pepper pieces on the floor (we’re working on that one).

Ingredients;
  • 1 pizza doughPizza Friday Thai Chicken Pizza
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, cut bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 handful bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 handful roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1 handful basil, chopped (optional)
  • 1 handful cilantro, chopped (optional)
My changes:
  • I used a Boboli ready-made pizza crust
  • I didn’t have bean sprouts, roasted peanuts, basil or cilantro so I omitted those
  • I added about 1/4 cup of shredded purple cabbage
  • I seasoned the chicken with a dash of garlic powder and black papper
Instructions:
  1. Heat 1/2 T coconut oil over medium heat. Sprinkle 2 thin sliced chicken breasts with some garlic powder and black pepper and cook over medium heat.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, cut up your veggies (carrots, red bell pepper, and purple cabbage).
  3. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. (This will vary depending on what type of pizza crust/dough you are using).
  4. Spread sweet chili sauce over the pizza, excluding the crust.  A thin layer of olive oil around the pizza crust will help make it nice and crispy.
  5. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese over pizza followed by cooked chicken and veggies.  Add remaining cheese on top.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (again, depends on what kind of pizza crust/dough you are using).

This pizza will definitely be staying in the rotation. It was very filling and I actually had the leftovers for lunch the next day.  Pre-cut your veggies and use leftover or a rotisserie chicken and dinner prep will take you five minutes.  Can’t beat that!

Happy Friday!
