GIMME ALL THE CARBS! Thai Chicken Pizza has been making an appearance at our weekly pizza night for the past few months and I can’t get enough!
Our weekly pizza nights have been going strong for years. It’s one of those traditions I’ll never be able to give up because it means I barely have to think about dinner and I get to stuff my face full of cheesy carbs. I know what’s on the menu and it’s really all about assessing whatever ingredients are already in my fridge. Or whatever is easy to grab at the store. This Thai Chicken Pizza has been on repeat for a while now! Probably because I always seem to have some leftover rotisserie chicken in the fridge AND, I’m obsessed with peanut sauce.
The sauce is not too sweet and perfectly acidic with all the lime juice. It gets slathered on the actual pizza as the base. And if you’re feeling extra, I like to dunk my slices of pizza into even more sauce. Clearly my obsession is going strong as it has been since I was in college and I’d eat this type of pizza from CPK on a weekly basis. #sorrynotsorry.

That is one tasty looking flavours and I am in for anything Thai, especially if it has peanut sauce!
We LOVE pizza night!! For us it is on the barbecue on Sunday evenings! Leftovers for lunch! This one sounds like a must try – I love the sauce idea!
Yes, please!!! The best pizza night pizza ever!!
adding this to our pizza night rotation. Yum!!
Thai flavors make me weak in the knees…seriously. I just love how they balance savory, sweet, tangy and spicy in every bite. This gorgeousness is happening this week in my house, for sure. Pinned!
Made this last night and it was AMAAAAAZING! We live in Abu Dhabi and I just used the local pita bread as the crust and it totally rocked. Thanks Gaby!
Seriously my favorite pizza flavor ever! This looks fantastic!!
Yummers! Thai is by far and away my fave pizza flavor and you’ve nailed it on the head with this recipe!
This sounds amazing and we love peanut sauce! YUM.
Yum, I love the idea of thai flavors on pizza!
That looks delicious!
Ooooh, this is one of my favorite flavors. I will go light on the red pepper flakes, and love every bite!!!
This is so simple yet ingenious! I LOVE peanut sauce, as in have to be careful how often I make it. But I usually pair it with rice noodles and Thai salad. I make mine with tamari (all soy, soy sauce) to skip the gluten in regular “soy sauce” – tricky marketers!
How long-approximately- should the pizza be in the oven?
This was the tastiest thing I’ve made in a while. Love, love, loved it. Can’t wait to make it again.
Omg this is SO good!! Made it last night and was really easy to make as you could prep all the toppings while waiting for the pizza to cook! Tastes exactly like CPK and even used some of the leftover sauce to dip veggies in! Will definitely make again, thanks Gaby!!
Hi there, quick question, I don’t have a blender but I have an immersion blender and a small and large food processor……..which would be the best to use? PS love your recipes
Made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent! Such a fun change to our regular pizza night – the peanut sauce is perfection!
