Simple Thai Pizza

What you need: 

pizza crust (I use the easy, yummy, and Quick Pizza Crust recipe from this site or Rustic
Crust)
2 teaspoons ginger, freshly grated (or 1/2 teaspoon powdered)
2 tablespoons peanut or sesame oil
3 tablespoons peanut butter, unsalted & all-natural
1/4 cup tamari
1 lime, juice only
1/2-1 teaspoon Thai green curry paste (make sure to check label for fish sauce or shrimp
paste)
8 oz. of your choice of protein - Morningstar Farms Chicken Meal Starters, or Thai-Style
marinated baked tofu
1 bunch scallions, chopped (white and light green parts only)
1/2 cup carrot, shredded or julienned
1/2 cup pineapple, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, loosely packed

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 450*F.
Mix the ginger in with the oil. Brush mixture (I use a silicone basting brush) across the pizza crust.
Bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven.
Mix together the peanut butter, tamari, lime juice and curry paste. Spread this on the crust and top with remaining ingredients. (TIP: If you are using MSF Meal Starters, put them on the pizza BEFORE the sauce and they will absorb lots of extra flavor.)
Bake for 10 additional minutes.

Preparation Time: 
15 minutes prep + 10 minutes

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand this time, but had to have this pizza and it still came out great.  I made the regular amount of sauce this time and followed the instructions about brushing the crust with the oil and ginger mixture.  I used crumbled tempeh that I mixed with a little tamari and sesame oil and let sit while I made the sauce.  No scallions available, but I did use the carrots and cilantro.  This time I used a can of pineapple and I do think fresh, as always, tasted better.  Overall, this is just a really good recipe that in no way you can screw up.  Everyone loves it and it is filling!  Thanks again!

Delicious!  I doubled the "sauce" and used Trader Joe's Chicken-less strips with a whole wheat pie crust from Whole Foods.  I mixed up the "sauce" with an immersion blender and used half as per LesLovesVeggies' suggestion as a marinade for the chicken strips.  My peanut butter was a jar I had on hand of Peanut Butter & Co.'s "The Heat Is On" peanut butter.  The mistake I made was to mix all of the ingredients, including the ginger and sesame oil, together.  When eating though -- I would hardly call it a mistake.  I used a little sesame oil to brush on the crust and a little in the "sauce."  We loved it and I will definitely make this again.  ;D

WOOOOW! This was incredible and so unique!  The only difference i made was using 4 tablespoons of peanut butter instead of 3, and the sauce was a perfect consistency.  I used MF meal starters.  I certainly liked it hot more than cold despite what a few reviewers said.

THANKS for this awesome recipe!

I kept meaning to reply to this once more---straight out of the oven, I really liked this pizza.  Reheated for lunch the next day?  Not so much.  If you're going to make this, plan to finish it that night!

This was okay.  I used a pre-made whole wheat pizza crust.  I think if I made a homeade crust next time I would like this dish more.  I love the flavors of the scallions, pineapple and this sauce together.  3 stars.

Sorry for the double post---I forget to say that I didn't have green curry paste, so I used red, and it came out delicious.  :)

This is amazingly good.  I made my crust with a bread machine, half whole wheat and half white.  For the sauce, I doubled it up except I left out the oil and I mixed in the tamari last, adding it only until it got to the consistency I wanted...  So I'm not actually sure how much I ended up using.  I did use sesame oil to prep the pan before I spread the dough in, though.  As suggested above I used a bunch of the sauce as a marinade for the Morning Star strips.

Also, instead of grating the carrot, I cut it into matchsticks.  I baked it for 20 minutes total.  I'll absolutely be making this again!

This was fabulous! I added a layer of thinly sliced tomatoes at the bottom, then another layer of sauce and the rest of the toppings. I would have to agree, it is even better cold the next day!  ;)

Yummy pizza, definitely 5 stars but I have to agree with other reviewers in that my sauce turned out super-runny.  I used red chili paste instead of green, added another tbsp of PB and reduced amount of tamari but it still got all over the place.  It was worth it but I think I will try to make the sauce more pastey next time.

...this is also one of the only pizzas i've ever had that's probably BETTER leftover cold than it is fresh! :D
