Ingredients

For the chicken: 

  • 1 tablespoon smooth peanut butter 
  • 2 teaspoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast

For the pizza: 

  • 1 pizza dough (either store bought or from scratch) 
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce 
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup bean sprouts 
  • 1/4 cup roasted, salted peanuts
  • 1/4 cilantro leaves, chopped 

Instructions

  1. Place a pizza stone or sheet pan in the oven on the lowest rack and preheat oven to 375°F.  Leave the pizza stone in the oven for 30-60 minutes while you prep the pizza and cook the chicken.  
  2. To make the marinade, add the peanut butter to a small microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 10 seconds.  Add the tamari, oils and ginger.  Mix until smooth.  Place the chicken in a ziptop bag and pour the marinade over the chicken, being sure it is well coated.  Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.  Remove chicken from the oven and increase oven temperature to 450°F.  Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces.  
  4. Lightly flour your work surface and roll out the pizza dough.  Any shape is fine as long as it will fit on your pizza stone or baking sheet.  
  5. Spread the hoisin sauce over the pizza dough, leaving room around edges.  Top with cheese and chicken.  Transfer the pizza to your preheated baking surface and bake for 10-12 minutes.  
  6. Remove pizza from the oven and top with carrots, sprouts, peanuts and cilantro.  Slice and serve!  

Notes

  1. If possible preheat your pizza stone for 60 minutes prior to baking your pizza.  
  2. If you don’t have a pizza stone you can use a sheet pan, which you’ll want to preheat for 30 minutes.  You won’t get as crisp of a crust but the pizza will still taste great!
