Thai Chicken Pizza

My Favourite Pizza Recipes

Thai Chicken Pizza myfavouritepastime.com_2794This time we had a summer of all seasons. Not too hot, not too cold, quite rainy but generally pleasant. You could cook what you wanted depending on the weather for the day. I spent a lot of time trying different pizza combinations, but I must say my most favourite was this Thai Chicken Pizza, with a thin crust. If you don’t eat peanut butter, then just forget about it, because crunchy peanut butter forms the sauce for the crust. I emptied several jars of crunchy peanut butter.

Thai Chicken Pizza myfavouritepastime.com_2799The pizza is simple: boneless, skinless chicken breast, green (spring) onions and garlic, and julienned red pepper, topped with lots of gooey mozzarella cheese. I suppose you can use yellow or orange pepper but I just love the red colour. I hope you’ll love the pizza the way we did. I wish you a happy Sunday!
