2 teaspoons minced ginger
2 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Vietnamese chili sauce
(or dried chili flakes)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
2 tablespoons water
=== THAI CHICKEN PIECES ===
1 tablespoons olive oil
10 ounces boneless skinless chicken beast -- cut 3/4" cubes
=== FOR THE PIZZA ===
Basic pizza dough for 2 pizzas
(or 2 prepared pizza crusts)
Cornmeal or flour -- for handling
2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 scallions -- slivered diagonally
1/2 cup white bean sprouts
1/4 cup shredded carrots chopped -- roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

To make spicy sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in a small pan over medium
heat. Bring the sauce to a boil; boil gently for one minute. Divide into
2 portions for use on chicken and pizza; set aside.

To make Thai chicken: Cook the chicken in olive oil over medium-high
heat, stirring, until just cooked, 5 to 6 minutes, do not overcook. Set
aside in refrigerator until chilled through. Once chilled, coat the
chicken with 1/4 cup sauce. Set aside in refrigerator.

To make the pizza: Use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup sauce evenly over
pizza dough within the rim. Cover sauce with 3/4 cup cheese. Distribute
half the chicken pieces over the cheese followed by half the green onions,
bean sprouts,and carrots, respectively. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup
cheese over the toppings and top the pizza with 1 tablespoon chopped
peanuts.

Transfer the pizza to oven; bake until crisp and golden and the cheese is
bubbly, 9 to 10 minutes. When cooked through, remove pizza from oven.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro over the hot cheesy surface.
Repeat with remaining ingredients for a second pizza.

This recipe yields 2 nine-inch pizzas.
