“My husband and I love to eat Thai and Indian food, but notice that most of these cuisines do not offer fresh salads on their menus,” writes Grace Kunert of Salt Lake City, Utah. “This is a recipe we developed to keep all those ethnic flavors when we needed a light dinner.”
A delicate peanut-flavored sauce is topped with cheese, fresh Asian veggies and juicy chunks of chicken to give these unique individual pizzas a deliciously different flavor. One bite and this Asian-inspired pizza pie will become a favorite.
“I came up with this recipe after trying a similar appetizer pizza at a restaurant,” says Cheryl Taylor of Ortonville, Michigan. “It’s a great way to use up leftover grilled or baked chicken. And it’s a breeze to vary based on everyone’s tastes.”
