Today, I’m thrilled to share a recipe that’s close to my heart – Thai Style BBQ Chicken and Microgreen Pizza. This dish is a fantastic fusion of flavors, blending the zest of Thai cuisine with the beloved classic, pizza. It’s perfect for those who love to experiment with unique flavor combinations and appreciate a fresh, gourmet twist on traditional recipes.
- Pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
- 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (preferably with a hint of Thai spices)
- 1 cup cooked, shredded chicken (marinated in Thai spices, if you like)
- 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup cilantro microgreens
- 1/2 cup radish microgreens
- Optional: chili flakes, to taste
- Preheat and Prep: Start by preheating your oven to its highest setting. If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to heat up as well.
- Roll the Dough: On a floured surface, roll out your pizza dough to the desired thickness. Transfer it to a piece of parchment paper for easy transfer to the oven.
- Layer the Flavors: Spread the BBQ sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border for the crust. Sprinkle the shredded chicken, bell pepper slices, and red onion over the sauce. Top it all off with a generous layer of mozzarella cheese.
- Bake to Perfection: Carefully transfer the pizza (with the parchment paper) onto the preheated pizza stone or a baking sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
- Garnish and Serve: Once out of the oven, let the pizza cool for a couple of minutes. Then, sprinkle the fresh cilantro and radish microgreens on top. Add a dash of chili flakes if you like a bit of heat.
- Slice and Enjoy: Slice your Thai Style BBQ Chicken and Microgreen Pizza and enjoy the burst of flavors!
This pizza is not just a dish; it’s a celebration of flavors. The spicy, sweet notes of the BBQ sauce, the tenderness of the chicken, the crunch of the bell peppers, and the freshness of the microgreens come together to create a truly unforgettable meal. It’s perfect for a family dinner, a get-together with friends, or even when you just want to treat yourself to something special.
Don’t forget, the key to this recipe is the freshness of the microgreens – they add not just a burst of flavor but also a punch of nutrition. And if you’re growing your own microgreens, even better! There’s nothing quite like the taste of homegrown produce.
I hope you enjoy making and eating this Thai Style BBQ Chicken and Microgreen Pizza as much as I do. Happy cooking, and stay tuned for more delicious, innovative recipes!
