Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza slices.

One of my favorite teenage hangouts – light years ago – was California Pizza Kitchen – affectionately referred to as CPK. Somehow 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. 2 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 recipes and every time I am amazed at how much flavor can come from 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.

CPK inspired 20 Minute Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza smothered in easy tangy peanut sauce, tender chicken, mozzarella cheese, crunchy carrots, sprouts and peanuts and the option of creamy coconut yogurt drizzle - an amazing flavor bursting quick dinner at a fraction of the cost.

Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza, an easy week-night dinner or impressive appetizer so you can satisfy your Thai cravings AND pizza cravings in one bite! or one pizza, two pizzas…

    1. I used fresh bean sprouts, I haven’t tried it with the canned before but I think those would work fine. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

  1. Oh wow, this looks fantastic! For most of my family, it’s fine, but there is one who has a life threatening peanut allergy. Normally I would just sub the peanut butter out with almond, but this seems like it relies on the strong peanut flavor. Do you think substitution for this particular recipe would work?

    1. I just came across this recipe, my husband is allergic to peanut so I use sun butter or almond butter to make peanut sauce. You just need to a a little more than what it’s asked for. Taste as you go

  2. Looks delicious! Where in the grocery store can you find flat bread? I haven’t seen it by the regular bread.
    Thank you!
