October is coming to a close, but if you didn’t know, it is National Pizza month & there is still time to get experimental in your pizza making. I decided to push the envelope myself a bit and create a Thai Shrimp Pizza. The images don’t really do it justice, but I promise peanut sauce does make a great pizza sauce
I liked it so much, that I am going to be making a chicken version soon! Sometimes it pays to get experimental.
- 1 lb. pizza dough
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1½ cups sweet onion sliced into very thin wedges
- 1 thai chili pepper
- 6 tbs. House of Tsang Bangkok Padang Peanut Sauce
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 2 tbs low sodium soy sauce
- 1 lb, peeled de-veined medium raw shrimp
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and place rack on a low shelf.
- Place sesame oil in pan over med-high heat, add onions and chili pepper. Quickly stir fry, remove to plate as soon as outside of onions is cooked (less than a minute).
- Divide dough into 4, and stretch each.
- Top each individual pizza with ¼ of the onions, then drizzle 1½ tbs of peanut sauce on each pizza.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes, until crispy.
- Remove pizzas, and cut.
- Place lime juice, brown sugar and soy sauce in pan over high heat, stirring frequently, once it becomes a glaze, add shrimp.
- Toss the shrimp in glaze, they will cook very quickly.
- Pour the shrimp and glaze over the individual pizzas and serve.
