Thai Chicken Pizza

This is a fun take on pizza that is very quick to put together if you have rotisserie chicken and prepared pizza dough on hand.  My daughter has been loving rotisserie chicken lately (but doesn't eat much), so we often have extra to use in other recipes.  Here, it tops a savory pizza with sweet-and-salty peanut sauce, creamy Monterey jack cheese, and sharp scallions.  Shredded carrot adds a bit of color.  This would also be excellent with sliced bell pepper if you'd like more veggies.  Leftovers keep well for lunch the next day.

Thai Chicken Pizza

Top pizza dough with a layer of peanut sauce (recipe below) -- a pastry brush works well for this. Top with shredded rotisserie chicken and shredded Monterey Jack cheese.  Bake until browned and crispy, then top with shredded carrot and minced scallions.  Drizzle with remaining peanut sauce and serve!

Peanut Sauce:
1/4 cup well-shaken coconut milk
3 T peanut butter
1 T fresh lime juice
2 tsp lower-sodium soy sauce
2 tsp chile garlic sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger

Whisk all sauce ingredients together.  Taste and adjust seasoning.
