thai chicken pizza recipeWe love to make pizza around here.  It is a favorite with the adults and children alike.  I make my own dough, and usually have some in my freezer for whenever we feel like whipping up a fresh pizza.  This pizza was inspired by the one at California Pizza Kitchen.  Their Thai Chicken Pizza is my favorite.  When my husband is standing duty, I have been known to stick a frozen CPK Thai Chicken Pizza in the oven and call it dinner.  Come to think of it, I have not done that in ages, I should get one the next time I am at the store.  I love the sauce that goes on this pizza.  It is the perfect blend of sweet, spicy, and tart.  Yes, there are a lot of ingredients.  Do not be put off by the ingredients list.  I use Asian ingredients all the time and most of these things are always in my pantry.  You can use this sauce on other things, like grilled chicken or vegetables.  My kids love to dip anything.  I love when the dip is not ranch or ketchup.

    Omg I actually love that CPK Thai Chicken Pizza (I’m not much for pizza). This one looks so much better than the CPK variety…and that sauce looks divine!

  2. Nicole says:

    This looks delicious! I’ve got most of these ingredients in my pantry because I’ve been trying to perfect a Thai peanut salad dressing and haven’t quite gotten there yet. Think the sauce would be too strong for a salad? Also, I see fish sauce pictured, but you don’t mention it. Do you put any in, and in what quantity? Thanks for your posts and beautiful pictures.

    • bakedbree says:

      I think that it would be too thick for a salad, but I like this combination of ingredients. Yes, I did add a splash of fish sauce, I will edit the recipe. 1 Tablespoon.

  3. Memoria says:

    OH my goodness! This pizza looks amazing!!! The only pizza I order at CPK is the carne asada one. I should try out the Thai chicken pizza.

  4. Emily says:

    I adore California Pizza Kitchen (And the Thai Chicken Pizza), but I always find it so expensive. So this is awesome to have the recipe now to create myself, with most of the ingredients already stocked in my kitchen. Thanks! This looks delicious!

  5. Kristen says:

    That is a favorite of mine at CPK so this is great to have the recipe! Thank you!

  6. gorgeous pictures! I have several thai pizza recipes bookmarked, I need to quit looking and start cooking :)

    CPK is the best…have you had their greek pizza ever? It’s also delish!

  7. Vanessa says:

    I really don’t want to add the fish sauce. How crucial is it to the sauce?

    that looks delicious. I just found your blog and am loving it. Great stuff.

  10. This is my all-time favorite pizza. Thanks for the recipe. Great photo, too!

  11. Angela says:

    hi bree!
    just made this pizza at home!
    instead of the peanut sauce i just made a hoisin, chili, garlic, olive oil and lime base! delicious!

    thanks!

  12. Leo says:

    I don’t like it hot, so I left out the chili oil. I cut the fish and oyster sauce down to 1.5 T in total. I only needed about an ounce of water to thin the sauce to workability. The sauce did not taste quite right in the pan but the finished pizza tasted exactly like CPK’s version. i was so stoked I was dancing around the kitchen with a slice of pizza in my hand, as my boyfriend laughed at me. I suggest doing a julienne of the red bell pepper and adding some ground peanuts along with the cilantro and lime at the end.

    • bakedbree says:

      glad that you liked it. It does taste a lot like CPK’s. I don’t order it there anymore because I can make one just as yum at home.

  13. eatingRD says:

    This looks and sounds amazing!!! love your photos and thanks for the lightroom tutorial. I’m looking forward to using it :) What kind of lens do you use most?

    • bakedbree says:

      In the kitchen, I use my 24-70 2.8 the most. It is a great all around lens. I also really love my 50mm, but it is harder for me to get step-by-step shots with it. I use that lens a lot for portraits.

    Bree- I am posting about this dish right now. This is the best pizza I’ve ever made. I’ve made so many peanut sauces before but never ever as good as this. You are a genius!!! WOW! Thank you for your recipes : )

    • bakedbree says:

      Wow, I am so happy right now. I love when people make something on here and love it. Thank YOU for visiting and letting me know.

  17. I made this tonight and we loved it! I halved the sauce and found that it made enough for two pizzas (which means I get to make another one sometime this week!). Yum! I loved the ginger.

    I made this today and it was GREAT! To save time I used pre-cooked pizza dough and pre-cooked chicken from the deli section. It tasted exactly like the restaurant. Thank you so much.

    I’m waiting for this pizza to come out of the oven as I type this. If it tastes even close to how it smelled before I put it in….Oh gosh!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  30. Kelli says:

    Every single recipe looks delicious. This is going to be my dinner tonight! The kids get take out pizza because they will think is too “fancy”, then of course they will try it and want it themselves. It’s a win win. I have my next week menu planned. Thank you!

  31. Colleen says:

    Bree-

    I am so glad you have this recipe on your blog….I love that pizza and can’t find it at any of the local supermarkets anymore! We have a CPK but it isn’t super close or convenient. Can’t wait to try this!

  32. Pat says:

    How long to cook?

  33. Jay says:

    Bree,
    Made this for the first time today. My sauce never got as thick as what your photos showed, but the flavor is simply AMAZING! I decided to shred a boiled chicken breast instead of cutting one up. The pizza will be going into the oven tonight, if I can wait that long.

    Thanks for a great recipe!

  34. Good morning, Bree! I’m stopping by to let you know that I featured your DELICIOUS looking Thai Chicken Pizza on my blog today: http://www.chattingoverchocolate.com/2013/06/pinterest-pizza-party.html
    Thanks for this amazing recipe!! Have a terrific day! :)
