Gluten-Free Thai Chicken Pizza

 

Wanna know something that really tickles me pink? Twofers.

For instance, buy-one-get-one-free shoe sales, 2-for-1 drinks, rollaway couches that double as chilling space and sleeping space, kitchen gadgets that serve two (or more) purposes, bubble wrap (<- just roll with it), etc, etc.

Perhaps it’s my grandmother’s pragmatic DNA that causes the excitement flair up when something is a.) a steal of a deal b.) minimizes clutter, and c.) promotes inventory maintenance.

Pertinent to this particular post, in recent current events, I designed a pizza (this one) that satisfies my Thai craving and my BBQ craving in the form of actual PIZZA. The secret? Using barbecue sauce in place of red pizza sauce, whipping up Thai-inspired chicken and stopping the whole thing with sriracha.

How to Make Thai Chicken Pizza:

I used gluten-free pizza crust mix to prepare this pizza, but you can use any pizza dough of your choosing.

I used mozarella cheese, curry-spiced chicken, red and orange bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, chopped almonds, and sesame seeds for the topping vibes.

You can add, subtract, multiply, divide your favorite veggies (for instance, carrot, cabbage, tomato, and/or sauteed bok choy would be marvelous), replace the chicken with shrimp (or omit the animal protein altogether), substitute chopped peanuts for the almonds, and/or whip up a crazy sexy cool peanut sauce for dipping your Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza adventure.

Not a fan of cilantro? Omit it! You can even add fresh Thai basil leaves to the pizza once it comes out of the oven for some herb infusion.

For the chicken portion of this recipe, I sliced a boneless skinless chicken breast into strips and cooked it in coconut oil and curry powder on the stove top with a pinch of sea salt. This simple concoction makes for suuuuper flavorful chicken, adding to the Thai essence of the whole experience.

Ingredients

Curry Sriracha BBQ Chicken:

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large boneless skinless chicken breast cut into strips
  • 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp BBQ Sauce to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt to taste

For the Pizza:

  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough I made my dough from this gluten-free mix
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1-½ cups shredded mozarella cheese or to taste
  • ½ orange bell pepper cut into match sticks
  • ½ red bell pepper cut into match sticks

For Serving:

  • sriracha to taste
  • ½ bunch green onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 3 tablespoons roasted almonds chopped

Instructions

Cook the Chicken:

  1. Add the coconut oil to a medium-sized skillet and heat to medium-high. Add the chicken, curry powder, Sriracha BBQ sauce, sea salt, and stir well to combine. Cook just until chicken is browned, but not cooked through (the chicken will finish cooking on the pizza), about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside until ready to use.

Make the Pizza:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Roll out the prepared pizza dough on a floured surface, then transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake pizza crust without toppings until golden-brown, about 8 to 15 minutes.

  3. Remove crust from the oven and spread 1/3 cup of BBQ sauce over the crust or more to taste. Layer with cheese, bell pepper, and chicken. Bake until cheese is melted and golden-brown, about 10 to 15 minutes.

  4. Remove pizza from the oven and allow it to cool. Transfer to a cutting board and drizzle with desired amount of Lee Kum Kee Sriracha BBQ Sauce. Garnish with green onion, sesame seeds, cilantro, and chopped almonds. Cut into pieces and serve with additional Sriracha BBQ sauce for dipping.

    That sauce is one epic two-fer! Sriracha and BBQ sounds like one amazing combination and the perfect pizza topping! I could definitely use some pizza today too. 🙂
