Thai Chicken Pizza

1 ball pizza dough

Olive oil, for brushing

¼ cup sweet Asian chili sauce, plus extra for drizzling

1 shallot, thinly sliced

½ large zucchini, thinly sliced

1 tsp. red pepper flakes

1 cup shredded cooked chicken

2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

3-4 tbsp. chopped peanuts

2 tbsp. minced fresh cilantro

2 tbsp. minced fresh basil (optional)


To make the pizza, increase the oven temperature to 500˚ F and preheat a pizza stone. Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch round. Lightly brush the perimeter of the dough with olive oil. Spread the chili sauce over the crust in an even layer. Layer with the shallot, zucchini, red pepper flakes, shredded chicken, and cheese.

Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Sprinkle evenly with the peanuts, cilantro, and basil before slicing and serving.
