Oh how I love California Pizza Kitchen! My crush started when I was just a teenager and CPK was just a yellow and black checkered restaurant. It was our teenage hangout for all occasions that warranted a little longer or a little nicer nicer than the favorite In-N-Out. At CPK, our large, loud, bubbly group always ended up seated in the back corner. And somehow, I always ended up with the Thai Chicken Pizza.
I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
While CPK is known for their BBQ Chicken Pizza, which I do love, its their delectable Thai Chicken Pizza that has my heart. I find its refreshing Thai flavors and complimentary textures absolutely intoxicating. And now I am thrilled to share my version of CPK with you! so YOU too can love this pizza whenever your heart desires.
This recipe makes 2 flatbread pizzas which I would say serves about 2-4. Two if you are like Patrick and me and we both NEED our very own pizza. So yeah, you should probably double or triple the recipe. To start, you simply saute your chicken, then whisk in your peanut sauce ingredients which is simple mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, ginger, garlic, basil and of course – peanut butter! This is a variation of the peanut sauce I use in all my Thai peanut dishes and every time I am amazed at how much flavor can come form so simple a sauce – and you will too!
Spread this peanut chicken sauce onto your pizzas, pile with mozzarella cheese, red onions, carrots, bean sprouts then bake for 10-ish minutes until golden bubbly then garnish with cilantro, crushed peanuts and if you are feeling extra flirty and fun, drizzle it with 4 ingredient Cconut Yogurt Crema! Trust me, you want to feel extra flirty and fun.
