A fun mashup of pizza and Thai flavors, this Thai Chicken Pizza includes a pizza crust covered in a creamy peanut sauce and topped with mozzarella, chicken, shredded carrots, onion and cilantro.

If you love Thai food then be sure to try my Pad Thai, Thai Basil Chicken, and Drunken Noodles.

Homemade Pizza is a weekly occurrence at our house and I love the bold, fun twist of flavors in this Thai Chicken Pizza. It’s simple to make and a fun way to mix things up! Other Pizza mash-ups I like are Cheeseburger Pizza and Pizza Quesadillas.

How to Make Thai Chicken Pizza:

  • Make the peanut sauce: In food processor or blender, combine peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, red pepper flakes, ginger, honey and sesame oil. Add enough water to thin to a smooth sauce spreading consistency. Set aside.
  • Assemble: Spread a thin layer of peanut sauce over the surface of pizza crust. Scatter chicken pieces over top and sprinkle with green onions, carrot and cheese.
  • Bake at 475 degrees F for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh cilantro.

  1. Wow, this looks amazing, not to mention so creative! I love Thai flavors, but I never would have thought to put them on a pizza. My mouth is watering, just looking at these photos!

    1. All of the Thai flavors so good on a pizza–it’s unique for sure and completely delicious!

  2. 5 stars
    I would love to make your thai pizza. I was wondering what size pizza crust I should make for that? I love your recipes and I have made a few of them and they are delicious!!!!

  3. 4 stars
    Good pizza! I was worried about the whole pizza just tasting like peanut butter but after cooking, it gave a creaminess to the base and slight taste of peanut butter. Also added spinach to my toppings. Used pre-made crust from the store instead of making my own, which probably brought down the quality a bit but much easier cleanup. Thanks for sharing, we love your site!

  4. 5 stars
    This was fantastic. I too doubled the recipe as I was making two medium sized pizzas. Loved the smooth taste with a kick at the end (I may have been a little generous on my chili flakes!) I added bean sprouts too. Will definitely make again.

  5. 5 stars
    Definitely double the sauce. I didn’t have chicken on hand so made it with shrimp and it was amazing too! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  6. 5 stars
    We thought this was yummy. I used pizza dough from the market and it worked no problem and very easy. The sauce was plenty but I’d just whisk it together next time, no need for a blender. I also just used rotisserie chicken for the chicken. Made this recipe quick and easy. Your flavors never disappoint 😊👍🏻
