One of our favorite pizza restaurants in town is Galactic Pizza. Not only do they have amazing pizza, but they also have a super-fun superhero theme. It’s always fun to see the reactions of people who have never eaten there when a stereotypically bearded Minnesotan man strolls out from the back in full superhero costume. Their business model and vision also has a positive impact on the community–pizza is delivered in electric cars (by superheroes, no less), wind energy is purchased to power the restaurant, pizza boxes are compostable, and a portion of their profits go to charity.
One of our favorite pizzas to get is The Thailander. I was craving some peanut-y chicken goodness and realized we could make our own version of this delicious pizza. I apologize for not having a better picture. It didn’t dawn on me to take a picture until I was already a few bites in and singing praises for how well this turned out.
Thai Chicken Pizza
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded*
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup carrots, julienned
3 green onions, chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a microwave safe bowl combine hoisin sauce and peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds at time, stirring in between, until peanut butter blends completely into hoisin sauce. Sauce should be about the consistency of pizza sauce. Add water a tablespoon at a time if the sauce is too thick.
Lay naans on a baking sheet. Spread peanut sauce on each naan. Top with shredded chicken, carrots, green onion and mozzarella cheese.
Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese has golden brown spots.
Top with cilantro.
*We shred chicken breasts using our KitchenAid mixer. Cut a chicken breast into large pieces (quartered is small enough) and drop the pieces into the mixing bowl. Use the paddle attachment and turn the mixer on to the lowest setting.
