1 tablespoon honey
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt


3 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
3 tablespoons brewed tea
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons chili oil
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1 1/2 tablespoon green onions
1/2 pound chicken breast, cut in 1/4-inch strips
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 carrot, shredded
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped


For the dough: In a small bowl, dissolve the honey in the warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and stir until it dissolves. Let the yeast mixture stand for 5 minutes, until a layer of foam forms on the surface.

In a large bowl, combine the flour and the salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the olive oil and the yeast mixture. Stir the flour into the wet ingredients, until all the flour is incorporated. If its too dry, add more water. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 15 minutes, until it is smooth and elastic.

Shape the dough into a ball and put in a well-oiled bowl. Cover with a moist towel and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk (about 1-1/2 hours).

For the topping: Combine peanut butter and next 7 ingredients (to sesame oil) in a blender. Process until smooth. Set aside. In the meantime, season chicken strips with red pepper and salt. Saute in 2 tablespoons olive oil, until done (about 7 minutes).

Coat chicken with 2 tablespoons peanut sauce. Set aside in the refrigerator. Punch the dough down, and divide into 2 equal portions. Roll out each portion into an 9-inch flat circle. Spread 1/4 cup peanut sauce over the surface of each of the doughs. Distribute 1/2 of the cheese over the sauce. Repeat with other pizza. Distribute 1/2 of the chicken over the cheese. Repeat with other pizza.

Place the pizzas in the oven (on top of pizza stones). Bake until crust is crispy and cheese is bubbling (8-10 minutes). Remove pizzas from the oven and sprinkle each with carrot and cilantro.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I love anything Thai flavored and this recipe didn't disappoint. It is a bit of work so next time I might just use a boboli crust to speed up the process. Homemade is better, but when you've got a Thai craving you have to go with what works!

THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING! Yes, I'm yelling! You have to try it. There are a lot of steps to it but you'll be so happy. Don't skip any of the ingredients, it's the final product that is to die for. Best. Pizza. Evahhhh!

I just ate this in Vegas last month & loved it! This recipe left out the bean sprouts though, which go on after baking as well.

This recipe was excellent.

HOWEVER -- no mention of when to introduce the sesame seeds or green onion. We introduced the green onion when we put the pizza in to bake, and we introduced the sesame seeds with the carrots and cilantro.

BY THE WAY -- the liquied peanut butter mixture makes an excellent salad dressing. Try it with some greens, red pepper, carrots, onion. YUMMY.

Just wondering as to the quantity of olive oil required in the dough as it is not listed in the ingredients.
