This Thai Chicken Pizza features a super simple homemade crust, peanut sauce, chicken, veggies and a little crunch from peanuts to bring the whole pie together!
We have pizza night once a week at our house, on Fridays.
Most of them time, we skip take out and make our own pizzas at home, from scratch.
We do this by starting with an easy to make Homemade Pizza crust using Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast.
This week, we’re switching it up from our usual and going Ethnic with this Thai Chicken Pizza. Don’t worry, it’s not spicy for the kids but 100% flavorful.
YES, YOU CAN MAKE THAI PIZZA AT HOME
I’m here to tell you that nothing tastes as good as Homemade pizza.
I get the kids involved in the whole process, from start to finish.
From gathering all of the ingredients, mixing, measuring and pouring, they help every step of the way.

How to Make Thai Chicken Pizza- Step by Step
Start by placing your flour, sugar, salt and Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast into a medium size bowl
Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute.
Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead** on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes.
Spread dough out onto a 12″ round pan sprayed with cooking spray or rubbed with oil.
Spread on pizza sauce and top with cheese, chicken, red bell pepper, carrots, shredded and green onions.
Bake in the oven from 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Top with cilantro leaves and peanuts. Serve with additional peanut sauce.
How to Adapt this Recipe and Variations
- Feel free to swap the veggies out in this recipe. You can use any variety of bell peppers you’d like.
- Don’t want the “crunch” leave out the peanuts.
- Do you like it spicy? Serve with your favorite hot sauce or chili sauce
- The water should be warm and not hot, about 120˚F-130˚F, otherwise you will kill the yeast. It should not be too cold either. Use a thermometer to ensure you have the proper temperature as water temperature is the most important factor of success of baking with yeast.
- Check to make sure your yeast ins’t expired.
- Check your pizza after 12 minutes to ensure a nice, golden crust. I need an additional 2 minutes, for a total of 14 minutes for ours but every oven is different.
