Instructions

For the sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, stir together peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, sesame oil, and ginger. Taste and add additional soy sauce, chili sauce, or vinegar as desired. Thin the sauce with about 2 Tbsp of water. You may need a little more, depending on what peanut butter you use.

For the pizza:

  1. Pre-bake the crust at 500 degrees for about 8-10 minutes, or until it’s set and just starting to turn golden. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before topping.
  2. Spread the thai peanut sauce over the crust. Add cheese, chicken, bell peppers, green onions, and carrots. Bake another 8-10 minutes, or until deep golden brown and cheese is melty. Sprinkle with cilantro, basil, and cashews. Drizzle with additional sweet chili sauce if desired.
  3. Makes 1 (10-12 inch) pizza

Notes

*I prefer natural peanut butter containing only peanuts and salt
