One of my favorite ways to use leftover meat is to make a homemade pizza! The possibilities are really endless - Ground beef? Make a taco pizza! Leftover ham? Ham and pineapple (my favorite!)! So when I needed to use some leftover chicken I had, I immediately thought about a thai chicken pizza! Back in KC, we used to eat at this pizza place called Minsky's. Besides your normal toppings, they were known for their unique pizzas - they had a philly cheesteak pizza that was amazing. But Joel really liked their spicy thai pizza, and so I wanted to surprise him with something as close to that as I could get. And it turned out great - not too spicy, but lots of fun thai flavor!
Thai Chicken Pizza (slightly adapted from Closet Cooking)
1 pizza crust (may I suggest this or this one?)
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
1 cup cooked chicken, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 carrot, julienned
1 handful bean sprouts
2 green onions, chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 handful roasted peanuts, chopped
1 handful basil, chopped
1 handful cilantro, chopped
Roll the dough into a 12" circle.
Spread the sweet chili sauce over it.
Sprinkle the rest of the ingredients on top.
Bake for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden.
Cut into slices and enjoy!
