It’s the weekend….busy Saturdays call for take out? How about take in? Thai Chicken Pizza is the best of two carry out favorites.


Thai Chicken Pizza

When I think of carry out, I think of pizza and Chinese………..Thai Chicken Pizza is carry out combined.

Pizza is a weekend staple for us, and if you have read my blog you know, we love pizza, and have it at least once a week. I love Chinese food, Tim not so much, but he does like spicy, this pizza is all of those things.

Thai Chicken Pizza

Pizza, Chinese, spicy, plus easy to make! What could be better?

Now, pizza has to have sauce, Thai needs peanut sauce. I see a combo……no tomatoes here, but a spicy smooth peanut butter sauce than is the perfect “pizza sauce”.

Pre-made pizza crust make a pizza easy to make at a moment notice. I keep them on hand for that impromptu pizza moment……you know when you just gotta have a pizza.

Pre-grilled chicken strips……in the freezer section, makes it easy to have grilled chicken at the ready.

For toppings, chicken, bean sprouts, carrots, and green onions. Now I know that mozzarella cheese is not Thai or Chinese, but, no self respecting pizza is sans of cheese!

Mozzarella is a bit neutral so….perfect. Compliments but doesn’t over power.

Once the crust is loaded with toppings into the oven for about 10 minutes. I like a brownish cheese, so a few minutes under the broiler helps give that golden color.

But remember, it only take a minute to go from perfect, to slightly more than golden…..a.k.a. burnt! So watch your pizza carefully if you broil.

Once you have that perfect golden cheese, remove the pizza and garnish with the green part of the green onions, cashews, cilantro, and if desired the cooling coconut cream.

Funny story……the day I made this pizza, I made the coconut cream and put it in the frig, so when the pizza was ready and I was taking pictures I could garnish with the cream………I forgot the cream until the next day…..yikes!

So, none of the pictures have the cream in them but, when I reheated a piece the next day I put the coconut cream on the pizza……..OMG it was awesome!

So, this weekend when you want take out – in…….. Thai Chicken Pizza.

But be sure to set the coconut cream out when asking the pizza so you can enjoy the total taste experience…..you won’t be sorry!

Italian Beef and Pepper Pizza


Italian Beef and Pepper Pizza

In our last post “we” shared our……..yes we both made an Italian Beef recipe, and since we couldn’t decide which one was better so, we posted them both!

Now, what to do with the left overs………???????? Ahhh………. but of course… pizza!!

We eat pizza…….a lot………I mean like two or three times a week a lot. I have discovered one thing in writing this blog………days I am not making a recipe, I don’t want to cook anything too difficult and I really don’t want to have to clean up the kitchen……ugh!

This is where I will tell you, Tim is a dish washing man!!!! He does dishes all the time, and for that I pledge to him my eternal gratefulness………..I hate to do dishes!!!!

But, the original idea for this pizza came form Tim and the Italian Beef recipe. So, all the credit for the idea goes to my wonderful husband. I must say the pizza is a total winner!

Italian Beef Pizza Slice

A pre-made crust……..I am a huge fan of the Boboli Pizza crust, either thin or original. I use them all the time……..simple, tasty and you can have one on hand for an impromptu pizza night.

We topped the crust with a jarred marinara sauce, but use your own recipe if you wish, same with the pizza crust, you can make your own homemade if you have the time, or the inclination……….the day I made this I had neither…….lol.

Chunks of the juicy Italian beef went on next. Sliced colored peppers, I used red, orange, and yellow, but any color will do………really, I just didn’t have any green ones…….my bad. I can’t believe I just used that term…….I really don’t like it……but it fit. 

Onions came next, then I used the pepperocini peppers from the Italian Beef, onto the pizza too, they were cooked in all that yummy juice and added an bit of spiciness, like a warm, comfy spice not a blazing hot burn your mouth spice.

Covered with sliced provolone cheese and into the oven……….25 minute later………..heaven on a pizza stone! A note on pizza stones, for me Pampered Chef has the best one around. I have had mine for years and it keeps getting better with age. The darker the stone the better it cooks.

It was sooooo good! Tim and I ate half for lunch and the other half for a late night snack. I was just as good the second time around.

So, after you decide whose Italian Beef recipes is better…….wink, wink……..try the Italian Beef and Pepper Pizza with the left overs………it will make your mouth happy!!!
