TIP #1: FOR THE GRILLED PIZZA:
When grilling pizza make sure to grill one side BEFORE adding toppings. Here’s How: Add the rolled dough to a medium heat grill, grill on one side 7 to 10 minutes. Take the pizza off the grill, add the sauce and toppings. Place back on the grill and cook until the cheese has melted.
TIP #2: FOR THE SAUCE:
If you want an extra punch of flavor, make another half recipe of the peanut sauce. You may want to thin it out a bit for a drizzle consistency. For that you would add a little water. Drizzle sauce over finished pizza. OR…use an ASIAN DRESSING.
THE PIZZA DOUGH
If the thought of using store bought pizza dough makes you cringe then I have a couple other suggestions for you. ONE: Go to your favorite pizzeria and purchase some pizza dough from them. Most pizzerias will have dough to purchase. TWO: Make your own! I have a delicious easy recipe. Click here for the printable recipe—->>>>EASY PIZZA DOUGH.
This pizza is perfect for leftover chicken! Simply take the chicken off the bone the night before and store it in a airtight container in the refrigerator. For an extra layer of flavor, the chicken is rolled in the sauce. Don’t have any leftover chicken but really want to make this amazing pizza? No worries….use rotisserie chicken from the deli.
- 1 (14 ounce) store bought pizza crust
For the Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 1 tablespoon Thai chili sauce
- 1 teaspoon honey
For the Toppings:
- 1 cup leftover or deli rotisserie chicken
- 1 (8 ounce) package fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
- ½ cup store bought shredded carrots
- 1 ounce snow peas, microwaved 1 minute and sliced
- ¼ cup chopped salted peanuts
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
Unroll dough and roll to a 9x14 inch rectangle. Place on a medium heat grill. Grill for 7 to 10 minutes or until the edges are crispy. Take off the grill and flip over (The toppings will go on the grilled side).
In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, teriyaki sauce, chili sauce and honey. Place shredded chicken in a bowl, add half of the sauce to the chicken and toss to coat. Spread the remaining sauce over crust. Top with chicken and cheese. Place the pizza back on the grill. Cook until the cheese is melted.
Take the pizza off the grill and add remaining ingredients.
TIP: MAKE ANOTHER HALF RECIPE OF THE PEANUT SAUCE, THIN TO A DRIZZLE CONSISTENCY WITH WATER. FOR EXTRA FLAVOR DRIZZLE OVER PIZZA OR SERVE ON THE SIDE.
