  • 1 (12 inch) pre-baked Italian pizza crust

  • ½ cup prepared Thai peanut sauce*

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter

  • 2 cups shredded chicken*

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and grated

  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position, and heat oven to 450 degrees. Place crust on a cookie sheet. Mix peanut sauce and peanut butter, then spread 2/3 of the sauce over the pizza crust; toss remaining 1/3 of the sauce with the shredded chicken. Spread chicken over pizza.

  2. Bake until the crust is crisp and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and top with carrots, green onions, peanuts and cilantro. Cut into 6 slices and serve.


* Find Thai peanut sauce in the grocer's Asian food aisle; use a rotisserie chicken or a package of pre-pulled roasted chicken.
