Secret Recipe Club - Thai Chicken Pizza


Its time for  Secret Recipe Club again - I love being part of this fun club!  My favorite part of the SRC is assignment day - I love when I get that e-mail in my inbox with the link to the blog that I get to choose my recipe from.  I also love that my last 3 assignments have all come from blogs I have never been to before, it's really a great opportunity to find some fabulous bloggers out there and some delicious recipes. If  you are not familiar with exactly how this club works, you can stop by the website and learn all about it - maybe even join in! Basically you are (secretly) assigned a blog to checkout, browse through their recipes, choose one to make and blog about it. It's a lot of fun!


My assigned blog this time was Veggie Converter.  This is how Kristi describes her blog, "One vegetarian mom + one omnivore dad and two undecided kids = one New Year’s resolution to create a ‘blended-family’-friendly vegetarian recipe every day—converting traditional family-favorite meals into meatless recipes that even picky kids (and husbands) will love!:  I was really excited about this blog because I keep saying I am going to attempt more meatless meals and I thought what a great opportunity!  Well, you read my title correctly, this is a Thai Chicken Pizza - so much for trying to go meatless.  Kristi's original recipe is for Thai Chickpea Pizza and even though we love chickpeas in our home, I opted for the addition of the chicken anyway - old habits right?  You can check out her great meatless version here.  I added the chicken, shredded carrots as well as some cilantro to my recipe and omitted the chickpeas as well as the beansprouts.  Thank You Kristi for introducing me to this pizza - we loved it!  Enjoy!!

recipe adapted from Veggie Converter
What you need:
1 pizza dough (I buy mine at the bakery section in Publix)
1/2 cup of Thai Peanut Sauce (I used a bottled one but you can get the recipe here)
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1/4 cup carrots, shredded
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped


*

What you do:
*First, what you don't do - you don't let your kids grab the dough and play around with it when you aren't looking (even if they say they just wanted to help.)  Then you don't let your hubby (who thinks he can fix ANYTHING) get a hold of it and attempt to work it back together instead of just simply fixing the holes the kids made.  If you do this your dough will look like mine instead of a pretty pizza crust.

I use a pizza stone and let it sit in a 500 degree oven for about 20 -30 minutes. 
Then lower the heat to 425. Spread peanut sauce on the dough.  Add all your toppings and cook for 10-12 minutes or until your crust is golden brown.

  1. The SRC sounds like so much fun! I wish I had more time to participate! At least I can discover new blogs through you...this thai pizza looks awesome! I'd probably switch out the chicken for chickpeas again, but I'm sure it would still be delicious!

  4. That pizza looks excellent.

    There's a funny story from the mid 1990's from my university where they ran out of thai peanut sauce and started spreading peanut butter on the thai turkey pizza.

    I'd rather eat your wonderful creation.

  11. I'd have to sub chicken for the chickpeas too, otherwise my family might trade me in for a new model!!

    I hope you'll stop by to visit my SRC post for Honey Vinaigrette Grilled Chicken.

  12. It may not be pretty but it sure looks delicious. My daughter loves to help-hinder me so I 'feel' you on that one.
