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.
