#13: Thai Peanut Chicken Pizza Recipe 3/21/10

Thai Peanut Chicken Pizza Recipe

I am so excited for Spring to be here. We have nicer weather, more time outside, and a whole new season of pizza recipes. To me, Spring pizza consists of lots of veggies and fresh flavors. Thai food doesn’t necessarily seem super Springy, but the colors and flavors of the veggies felt like a great start to the season. We bought Thai peanut sauce from Lori’s Natural Foods Center and have been wanting to try it out for a couple of weeks.  Using the peanut sauce, I marinated and then grilled chicken cutlets. I chopped fresh onion, red pepper, garlic and broccoli, then sautéed them with a spritz of canola oil, salt and pepper. I sprinkled a very small amount, I normally heap it on, of mozzarella cheese on the crust, then piled on the veggies and the chopped chicken. Before putting the pizza in the oven I drizzled about two tablespoons of the Thai peanut sauce over the toppings. This pizza tasted so fresh and healthy! You could taste all of the individual flavors of the veggies, and the chicken grilled with the peanut sauce was excellent. What a great start to Spring!

#3: Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza Recipe 1/16/10

Andrew loves Chicken Cordon Bleu so I decided to make it into a pizza. We had a ham for dinner earlier in the week so I used the leftovers from that dinner. I marinated and grilled chicken breasts. I sprayed a little canola oil on the dough, added Swiss cheese slices, the ham and the chicken. Like my chicken parmesan, this pizza turned out to be a little dry, but still very good. I think next time I will brush the dough with oil rather than just spraying.
