Ingredients (Makes 2 Pizzas)

  • 24 ounces pizza dough, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dusting

  • 1 cup cooked grilled Thai chicken, diced Generously dust a wooden peel or the back of a sheet pan with flour or cornmeal. Generously dust a wooden peel or the back of a sheet pan with flour or cornmeal.
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, julienne or coarsely grated
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • Sriracha chili sauce for garnish (optional)

Method

Step 01

Place a pizza stone in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 500°.  Allow the stone to heat for at least half and hour before baking pizzas.

Step 02

Allow the pizza dough to come to room temperature.  On a lightly-floured work surface, form the dough into two large balls, collecting the sides and tucking them under to create a smooth outer surface.  Cover the dough with a damp towel and allow to rest for at least 20 minutes.

Step 03

Meanwhile, warm the peanut sauce in a saucepan set over low heat until heated through and pourable.

Step 04

Generously dust a wooden peel or the back of a sheet pan with flour or cornmeal. With lightly-floured hands, press the dough with your fingertips to form a flattened disk.  Lift the dough up and use the back of your knuckles to stretch and thin-out the dough into a circle with a diameter of 12-inches. Be careful to preserve the edge of the dough if you want a light, chewy crust. Carefully position the stretched dough onto the prepared peel or baking sheet.

Step 05

Using a ladle, spoon an even layer of the peanut sauce onto the dough and carefully spread it close to the border being careful to leave a 1/2-inch edge.  Top with an even layer of mozzarella cheese followed by pieces of the diced Thai chicken, green onions and carrots.  Top with a light sprinkling of a bit more mozzarella.  Lightly brush the exposed crust with a bit of the vegetable oil to promote browning.

Step 06

Slide the pizza onto the preheated stone and bake until the crust is crisped and golden and the cheese is bubbling, about 6-7 minutes.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the roasted peanuts,  freshly chopped cilantro leaves and sriracha. Serve immediately.
