By now you all know that I love pizza. If I could, I would eat pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I do not discriminate when it comes to pizza either. Hawaiian pizza, vegan pizza, pepperoni pizza…I love it in all shapes and sizes. Not only is pizza my favorite food, it has become my cure for any aliment I may be having. Whenever I am having a bad day I crave pizza. Naturally this is not the healthiest habit, and a girl cannot live on pizza alone. Trust me… I’ve tried. Pizza was a staple during my college years.
In an effort to keep pizza in my new healthier diet, I have been experimenting. One day while shopping in the grocery store lightening struck. I saw a Thai pizza in the frozen section. After looking at the ingredients, I decided to put it back into the freezer but I knew I needed to create my own version at home. One where I have control over the ingredients.
- 3 slices of lavash bread
- ¼ cup natural peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
- 1 cup cooked chicken
- 1 carrot, julienned
- 1 handful bean sprouts
- 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 1 handful chives, chopped
- 1 handful cilantro, chopped
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- To create the Thai peanut sauce, whisk peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and garlic in a small bowl until combined.
- On two cookie sheets, heat the all three slices of lavash bread for 3 minutes on each side or until they become crispy.
- Remove lavash bread from the oven and equally spread the Thai peanut sauce.
- Sprinkle the chicken, carrot, bean sprouts, chives, and cheese onto the lavash bread.
- Heat for 7 more minutes.
- Top with fresh cilantro and try to share!
Lavash bread makes the perfect thin crust pizza! Putting it into the oven before adding the toppings creates just the right amount of crisp. The Bear and I also love traditional pizza on lavash bread.
If you are vegetarian, you could replace the chicken with marinated tofu; just make a little extra Thai peanut sauce!
I easily ate this entire pizza and the Bear has been known to polished off two of them! I think they were a success!
