Easy Thai Chicken Pizza

8 pieces of naan or pita flat bread
2 medium chicken breasts, cooked (season with salt and pepper) or use a rotisserie chicken
2 c shredded mozzerella
1 medium bell pepper, sliced thin (red, orange or yellow)
1/4-1/2 small red onion, sliced thin
fresh cilantro

Peanut sauce:
1/2 c hoisin sauce (found in the asian cooking section of the grocery store)
1/2 c peanut butter
1-2 T fresh ginger, grated
1 T Sriracha hot sauce (adjust to your liking or use another spice/hot sauce you have)
1/3 c hot water


1) Prepare the peanut sauce. Combine the hoisin sauce, peanut butter, and 1/2 tsp of sriracha sauce in a bowl. Peel the ginger and grate it straight into the bowl. Add about 1/3 cup of hot water and whisk until smooth. Set aside.

2) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Chop the chicken into small pieces and transfer to a bowl. Thinly slice the red onion and red bell pepper.

3) Spread about 2 Tbsp of the peanut sauce over each piece of naan or pita bread. Top with about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese, a handful of the chicken, some red bell pepper, and red onion.

4) Place the pizzas on a perforated pizza pan, cookie sheet or directly on the oven rack and cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly (about 10-15 minutes depending on which method you use). When the pizzas come out of the oven, top with fresh cilantro leaves and enjoy!

This recipe is slightly modified from one found on Budget Bytes.
