Thai Chicken Pizza

I love Thai food so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it to have something new on the menu and who doesn't like pizza! I used leftover turkey on my pizza. This pizza also is supposed to have like a "slaw" topping, but I forgot to buy it, so it went without, but if you are looking for more veggies you can definitely add it.

Thai Chicken Pizza-shared from Creatively Domestic
No Rise Pizza Crust(this makes 2 thin crusts or one thick large crust)
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp terriyaki sauce
2 tbsp water
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes(I only used a pinch)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp white sugar
1-2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp minced onion(omitted)
1 tsp minced ginger
1.5 cups chopped chicken/turkey
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese

Place sauce ingredients together in a bowl. Heat in microwave for 30-60 secs until pb melts slightly and you can mix it together. Take some of the sauce and pour it over the chicken and let marinate.(When i did this it made the chicken paste like)

Spread crust out, and bake at 400 degrees for 8 mins. Remove from the oven and top with remaining sauce. You may have a little left over. Top with cheese, chicken, and sprinkle with peanuts. Return to the oven and bake for another 8-10 mins until cheese is melted(watch that the nuts don't burn!)

**This pizza surprised me with how good it was! K I think was pleasantly surprised as well and he then asked me what it was.He loved it though and went back for seconds! I wasn't sure at first how the italian cheese I used would blend with thai flavors, but the sauce was so flavorful that it took right over the subtle cheese flavor and worked well!
