Thai Chicken Pizza

The first time I ate Thai Chicken Pizza was at my friend Barbara’s house.  She made it for a big group of hungry teenagers.  They devoured it!  Our family has declared it a favorite meal.   I have to admit it has become my favorite pizza ever.

You can purchase a premade pizza crust or make your own.  I personally like the pizza dough recipe found here on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.

It does take a few extra steps, but oh it is so worth it!  I like to bake the chicken and cut up the veggies up to a day ahead to save time when making this pizza.

Try it…you will like it.
