Who else is a Thai food fan?
We are a Thai loving family. Even my 3-year-old tells people her favorite food is Thai noodles. Not kidding!
So I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate Thai flavors into every day (simple) dishes.
And who doesn’t love pizza?
So I searched around a bit and found a few different ideas around Thai flatbreads and pizzas.
Then I used those to create this simple, yet delicious, Thai Chicken Pizza Recipe that your whole family will enjoy!
Plus it’s full of veggies and herbs. This is one mom-approved pizza!
A SIMPLE GLUTEN-FREE THAI CHICKEN PIZZA RECIPE THE WHOLE FAMILY WILL LOVE
- 1 package gluten-free pizza crust mix (our favorite is Bob’s Redmill Pizza Crust Mix)
- 2-3 chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
THAI PEANUT SAUCE INGREDIENTS
- 2 tablespoons Tamari sauce (gluten-free soy sauce)
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup crunchy organic peanut butter
- 2 cups organic mozzarella cheese
- 1/8-1/4 cup sliced red onion
- 1/4 cup shredded carrots
- 2-3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
- 1/4 cup shredded cabbage (optional)
- Follow the directions on your pizza crust mix to make your pizza dough, making sure you allow time for the dough to rise.
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Once your dough is resting and rising, mix together all your sauce ingredients except for the peanut butter (which will be added at a later time).
- Heat coconut oil in a medium-sized skillet on medium-high heat. Cube your chicken and add to the skillet. Cook through.
- In the meantime, cut and prepare your toppings and begin rolling out your pizza dough.
- Once your chicken is cooked through, add your sauce and allow for your chicken to soak it up.
- Then stir in your peanut butter until creamy and combined.
- Remove from heat.
- Assuming your pizza dough is ready and rolled out, begin by adding a layer of cheese, then cover the pizza in the chicken mixture. This is where the majority of the flavor will come from.
- Next, add your carrots and onions, your cilantro, and finish your pizza with a final sprinkle of cheese.
- Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until crust and cheese begin to brown.
- Remove, slice, and enjoy!
TIPS & SUGGESTIONS
- If you’re dairy-free, try using a vegan cheese instead of the mozzarella.
- Have fun with the toppings! Consider adding bean sprouts or other shredded veggies for a yummy crunch.
- If you aren’t gluten-free, you can replace the Tamari sauce with soy sauce.
- Don’t add extra salt to your dish until you taste it, trust me! Tamari is very salty. Ours didn’t need any extra!
- For a fresh crunch, consider holding back some shredded cabbage to add once you remove your pizza from the oven!
