This is a spicy, Asian pizza. If you are adventuresome or like Thai food, try this recipe.
This pizza is covered with toppings after the crust is baked, not before. If you don’t have leeks on hand, green onions may be substituted.
1 pizza crust mix or recipe made per directions
1/2 cup Thai Peanut Sauce
1/3 cup unsalted dry roasted peanuts
1/4 cup sliced leeks
1 pound cooked shrimp or chicken, diced
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
1. Form the pizza dough into a pizza crust. Let it rest for ten minutes. Bake the pizza crust until it just starting to brown. It should be baked through but not browned. If you would like to check it with your thermometer, the internal temperature should 180 to 190 degrees. Remove the crust from the oven to cover with toppings.
2. Spread Thai Peanut Sauce over the crust.
3. Spread the peanuts, leeks, and shrimp or chicken over the top. Cover with mozzarella and sprinkle with cilantro.
4. Bake for ten minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.
