One thing we really miss in San Diego is Leucadia Pizza. And one of our favorites at Leucadia is the Thai Chicken Pizza. If you live in San Diego and you are NOT eating this pizza, it’s a crime.
I’ve begun my quest to recreate it. And I think I’m almost there!
Featured Recipe: Thai Chicken Pizza
Author: Jane Maynard
Recipe type: Main Dish, Poultry, Pizza
- Pizza crust (homemade, TJ’s $1 crust, whatever)
- Shredded carrots (about ½ – ¾ of a carrot…1 full carrot was a little much)
- Bean sprouts
- Chopped green onion
- Chicken breast, cut into small cubes or strips and sauteed in olive oil (season with s&p)
- Peanuts (I went with roasted unsalted…you don’t need the salt on the peanuts)
- Peanut Sauce
- Chopped Cilantro
- Mozzarella Cheese
peanut sauce really makes the pizza. A perfect blend of sweet and spicy. I tried the Trader Joe’s Satay Peanut Sauce. It was definitely not sweet enough and the texture wasn’t right.
I just bought Organic Peanut Sauce at Whole Foods. I think this just might do it. I haven’t used it on the pizza yet, but I added some brown sugar to the sauce and it tastes awesome. And the texture is better for pizza. Next time I make the pizza, I’ll let you know how this sauce goes. I think it will be a winner!
Whenever I make homemade pizza, I always put all the toppings on top of the sauce and add the mozzarella cheese last. Especially with fresh herbs. It’s the way to go.
If anyone has a recipe for a great peanut sauce, please share!
