  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Thai chicken pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 10 ounces boneless/skinless chicken beast, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • For the pizza -make pizza dough, use your own recipe
  • cornmeal or flour for handling
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 scallions, slivered diagonally
  • 1/2 cup white bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots chopped, roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Combine sauce ingredients in a small pan over med. heat. Bring the sauce to a boil; boil gently for one minute. Divide into 2 portions for use on chicken and pizza; set aside.

To make Thai chicken

Cook the chicken in olive oil over med-high heat, stirring, until just cooked; 5 to 6 minutes do not overcook. Set aside in refrigerator until chilled through. Once chilled, coat the chicken with 1/4 cup sauce. Set aside in refrigerator.

To make the pizza

Use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup sauce evenly over pizza dough within the rim. Cover sauce with 3/4 cup cheese.

Distribute half the chicken pieces over the cheese followed by half the green onions, bean sprouts, and carrots, respectively. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup cheese over the toppings and top the pizza with 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts.

Transfer the pizza to oven; bake until crisp and golden and the cheese is bubbly, 9 to 10 min. When cooked through, remove pizza from oven. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro over the hot cheesy surface.

Repeat with remaining ingredients for a second pizza.
