Thai Chicken Pizza

Thai Chicken Pizza

The older I get, the more I appreciate dishes that taste delicious while cutting major corners in calories. Lately, my favorite way to do this is by subbing spaghetti noodles with spiralized zucchini. While this has been a big trend for some time, my husband is still not a fan. And in his defense, I kinda get it. Even for me (who loves to find ways to cut back in lieu of spending all day in the gym), there are some things that just shouldn’t be messed with. Up until recently, I would have told you that one of those things was pizza.


...crust turns into the crispiest, crunchiest base when grilled...

When I was 16 I worked at a pizza shop. In those days I liked my crust thick and dripping in ranch dressing, and I could get away with it, because my metabolism operated a bit differently  than it does now (understatement!). A lot has changed. On the down side, my waist line is a bit more temperamental, but on the plus side my palate has matured a lot. My affinity for thick crust has given way to a love of crispy, wood-fired crust, topped with as many unusual and tasty toppings as possible.

Over the course of our time working on TMP, Natalie and I have had quite a bit of fun experimenting with different pizzas and have come up with some real gems along the way (like here and here), but our latest collaboration has to be my favorite yet. We created this fresh and flavorful Thai chicken pizza using Flatout flatbread (and I’ve been craving it daily ever since). I love using this flatbread, because not only does it save time, but major calories as well. We smothered Flatout’s Artisan Thin Pizza Crust in hoisin sauce, covered it in shredded chicken coated in our favorite peanut sauce, and then sprinkled the pizza with a bit of pepper jack cheese before throwing it on the grill. Much to our delight, Flatout’s Artisan Crust turns into the crispiest, crunchiest base when grilled and makes the perfect vehicle for this Thai chicken pizza, especially if you’re a thin crust lover like I am. Once the pizza was grilled, all it needed was a sprinkling of cilantro and some crushed red pepper, and voila! It’s the perfect dinner that cuts all the right corners, without sacrificing any of the flavor. That’s my kind of meal.
