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:

SO HOW'D IT GO?

THIS IS SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO, SO GOOD. SO. GOOD. OH MY GOD.

...okay, now that i'm done raving, this is supremely good! vegans and non-vegans alike adore this--when i bring in leftovers for lunch, i have to fight to keep my friends from eating it. i buy whole wheat pizza dough from trader joes, and make a few minor modifications to the recipe. i defrost my morningstar chicken strips, put them in a bowl, and make up double the amount of peanut sauce suggested and pour half of it on the chicken. this ensures that the chicken is really flavorful.

my sauce was a bit thin--i bet the difference is whether or not you use creamy or chunky peanut butter--so i usually add about an extra heaping tablespoon of peanut butter to even it out (not three tablespoons like the person below said--that makes it waaay too thick. i made that mistake my first time making this.) some might think the sauce is a bit on the salty side, too, with all that tamari... i like it the way it is, but you could probably substitute some of the tamari with low sodium soy sauce.

thank you! i could really eat this all day! :D

I LOVED this!!! I sooo missed thai chicken pizza from my omni days. This pizza absolutely fits the bill! And my sauce wasn't runny at all - if anything, it was thick! I used powdered ginger, sesame oil, Teddy brand all-natural extra chunky peanut butter, Bragg's (used 3 tablespoons + 1 tablespoon water for the tamari), omitted the curry paste (used a couple of shakes of chili powder instead), homemade baked tofu, and omitted scallions (didn't have any) and pineapple. I added a chopped red bell pepper and baked as directed. This was so so good, but VERY salty - I think next time I will use water instead of the Braggs. I will definitely be making this again - thanks so much!!

OMG, this is my new favorite!!!! Absolutely fabulous. The sauce was fine; not runny at all for me. I used hot n spicy smoked tofu for the protien. Next time I'm gonna use 1 tbsp. sesame oil and 1 tbsp. hot chili oil (instead of just sesame oil)to give it extra heat!!!

This was really yummy!  The sauce was a little bit too saucy even with extra peanut butter.  So I added 2 teaspoons of tapioca starch to thicken it up a little.  I'll add a little more if I make this recipe again.  Another option would be to cook the sauce down a little bit. 

I made this with mock duck, cucumbers and blanched broccoli, and it was great.

;)  Interesting Pizza  We enjoyed it and will have it as part of our 'Friday Night' tradition, where we break and treat ourselves to pizza, hoagies or subways.  Or at least we did in the past.  But now that we are eating healthy in the neighborhood, we'll add this recipe to our Friday Night treats.  Also a fun pizza recipe for family and friends.  They'll like tasting and trying something different. 

I agree with the first review, the sauce seemed a  bit runny, making the pizza a bit soggy, so I will use the reviewer's idea to firm up the sauce.  I liked the recipe well enough to blog it - hope that is okay.

This was really good.  When I made the sauce, it seemed awfully runny, so I added about another 3 tbl. of peanut butter and ran it through the food processor, which gave me a sauce that seemed right.  By then I had enough for 2 pizzas, which was a good thing--just needed to chop up some extra toppings.  I used textured soy protein chunks, and added about a tablespoon of the sauce to the water that I soaked the chunks in.  Wish I'd had fresh pineapple, but even canned was good.  My family loved this.
