A whole wheat crust is slathered with a slightly spicy peanut sauce then topped with shredded chicken, a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese and baked to golden perfection. When it’s removed from the oven it’s topped with fresh cilantro, thinly slice carrot (I used a peeler) and peanuts for a little crunch. Are you drooling yet?
So I don’t mean to brag, but this pizza is totally restaurant quality. I love making homemade pizza and always enjoy them but this was the first time I really thought I could see it on a menu somewhere.
It is a bit fancier and more exotic than our normal pizzas but it was so so good. I know, I know, we live on the edge but we are pretty traditional when it comes to our precious pizza.
Plus, it is clean! I love when that happens. This is officially my new favorite. Thai chicken pizza for life.
