Thai Chicken Pizza

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!

    how can you not like pizza? I live for it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  6. bakedbree

    June 16th, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    I have never had the carne asada, I will try it. The buffalo chicken pizza is great too.

    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!

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

  14. bakedbree

    not at all… all of my recipes are starting places. Play with it until it tastes good to YOU.

    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!

    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.

  21. bakedbree

    July 5th, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    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.

    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?

  23. bakedbree

    September 26th, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    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 : )

    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.

    add some green cabbage to this pizza and it really comes alive!

    that sounds good, adding a nice crunch.

    I love how you put the mung beans there. Makes it more authentic.

    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!

    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!

  44. bakedbree

    February 11th, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    You (and your kids) will love this, is sweet and kids seems to like it.

    BTW my youngest wanted to try one, so I made her a personal pan size thai pizza. She proceeded to inhale the pizza then asked for another. Thank you!

    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!

  48. bakedbree

    March 1st, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    I hope that you like it, I love it, and it helps fight the craving.

    How long to cook?

  50. bakedbree

    April 8th, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    About 15 minutes? Until the crust is brown and the cheese has melted.

    April 15th, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    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!

  52. bakedbree

    April 15th, 2012 at 4:07 pm
