    Delicious flavors and textures. We will make this again for pizza night. I need to figure a way to keep these flavors while converting this into a main dish salad...perhaps making a dressing out of the duck sauce. The chicken was delicious on its own, and the vinegar/honey marinated veggies were perfect.
    The pizza is amazing with flavors so different from other pizzas. We've made it several times and will continue.
    The flavor on this pizza packs a real PUNCH! It's incredibly tasty and gets devoured instantly by my family and friends. 
    I made a lighter version of this by using lighter cheese, whole grain flour tortilla, and cutting a WEE bit of the sauce, BUT it is just EQUALLY SATISFYING.
    A local restaurant, that has gone out of business, served a good Thai Pizza, so I was happy to find this recipe. This is a bit different, but good nonetheless. I use Walmart [I guess they're good for something] garlic naan bread [2/pack]; that way each can have different toppings. Hoisin sauce is less sweet, and I use Sriracha sauce [and sometimes chopped jalapeņos], low-sodium soy sauce, no-salt steak seasoning and no sprouts. A good base recipe to tweak to your own preferences.
    This pizza was the best pizza I've had in a log time. Now my Italian friends wont be happy.
    This was amazing! Used plum sauce and did the chicken on the grill instead of in a pan. Other than that I followed it exactly. It was fabulous! Cannot wait to make it again!
    Fantastic!! My husband and I enjoy a Thai pizza at one of our favorite restaurants, so we decided to try this at home. He said this one is better! : Definitely a keeper!
    Very good and easy !!
    This pizza was SO good. I made some adjustments and the results were awesome. When making pizza at home I use Trader Joes Lavosh Wrap Bread. It comes in rectangular sheets- I lay two flat on a baking sheet, one on top of the other and add the sauce and toppings right to it. This skips a step and the pizza comes out light and crispy. If you prefer a softer/thicker crust I recommend using dough. In the Asian food section of the grocery store I found Plum Sauce. It added the perfect amount of sweetness to counteract the spicy chicken marinade. I used Tapatio since it's my standby hot sauce, but I think I'd use Sriracha next time - it would probably mix a little better with the Asian flavors of the dish. When baking the crust, I added the sauce, cheese and sliced red peppers as instructed. Since the Lavosh Bread is already cooked it doesnt need to stay in the oven as long - only until the cheese is melted and a bit browned. Six minutes at 425 was perfect. 
    The results were amazing.  
    yummy my husbands fav so far!
    This was very flavorful. Me and my daughter had fun making it and will be making it again but without the chicken.
    SOOOO good! This pizza was amazing. The ingredients all mesh together to create a very unique taste. I love the sauce that the chicken is tossed in and could definitely find other things to make with it. Thanks Rachel!!
    Not too bad. A bit salty. I would make it again but revise a few things---less salt, more fresh ingredients.
    This was awesome, went really well with spicy wine (I ended up drinking most the bottle by myself! No one else liked it, but I sure did LOL. This is definitely going into my regular meal rotation.
    OMG this was sooooo yummy! I used fresh dough from the deli, skipped the sprouts and added 1/2 of a yellow and green pepper instead. I also used a lot more cilantro. The plum sauce was a bit too sweet...I'll go a little lighter the next time. This would be a huge party hit.
    WOW. This was fantastic! So many different flavors and textures, all complementing each other perfectly. I made my own whole wheat crust, which added a little time, but totally worth it. I made a few tweaks to the recipe. First, I subbed tofu for the chicken. I just cooked it in a pan with the sauce, but I think next time I might bake it to give it a little chewier texture. Second, I found the marinade a bit salty, so I added some honey to tone down the flavor. Third, I subbed carrots for the beansprouts. I added them to the rice wine vinegar/honey sauce with the cucumbers and it was delicious. The vinegar sauce made the carrots a bit less crunchy, and took away the strong carroty flavor (I'm usually not a big fan of raw carrots. Finally, I used hoisin sauce instead of plum sauce or duck sauce. The pizza turned out amazing, and I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
    I made this last night and it was delicious!!! I used the plum sauce and it was perfect, my husband loved it also.
    Like a gourmet pizza, we loved this one!
    I made this pizza for my boyfriend and myself the other day it was FANTASTIC! Definitely a keeper recipe.
    I can't rave enough about this pizza! I have made this several times now and even my husband who is anti-vegetables loves it. I've made it several different ways but the only variation I really take on this is that I cook the peppers etc. with the crust and cheese. Other than that, I make it as written and it's awesome! Since it's just the two of us, we always have leftovers and they reheat great!
    Don't know what possessed me to try this as it's not something I would usually try, but I really liked it! It takes me a lot longer than 30 minutes to prepare because I'm just not as organized and coordinated as Rachael, but it's worth it for a special treat. I've tried duck and plum sauce, but prefer it with hoisin sauce. Love the contrast of the cold crunchy ingredients atop the pizza.
    My wife and I have tried many different Thai pizza recipes and even a few solo attempts. Without a doubt, Rachel's is the best. The recipe is extremely simple to follow but still provides a multiple layer of flavors. Wonderful! Would highly recommend and we will definitely be enjoyin' it in the future.
    I have been making Thai pizza for a while.. also try with peanuts, chicken, carrot, sprouts, scallions, mozzarella, topped with cilantro. I usually just buy peanut sauce but I'm going to try this one!
    We loved this recipe! We used a premade thin crust and absolutely loved this pizza. The sauce that the chicken is cooked in is enough to make this recipe stand alone. I would definitely cook this over and over!
    This is a great recipe...tweaked it a little...omitted the red pepper and used thinnly chopped Napa cabbage instead as my husband can not eat cucumbers. Sprinkled with the Montreal seasoning as some people commented that it was a little bland. This worked great! Will use a little less cilantro next time, because it was a little overpowering. A unique and tasty change to the norm!!
     Thanks Rachel!
    Perfect Thai Chicken Pizza! It was a hit in our house!!
    Love all of these flavors, just as good or better than any thai chicken pizzas I've had at restaurants. Yum!
    Very good recipe - way better than California Pizza Kitchen.
     I made a couple of easy changes with good results:
     1) I left off the bean sprouts.
     2) I added sesame seeds around the edges of the crust.
     3) I used jarred roasted red peppers.
     4) I substituted a large shredded carrot and marinated it in the vinegar/honey
     5) I put all the veggies (peppers, carrot, scallion) on the pizza when it went in to bake
    This pizza is delicious! It's now a favorite of my kids. I sometimes switch out the beean sprouts for shredded carrots. Love all the flavors going on in it!
    I made this recipe for the first time last night and man o man is it wonderful! So full of flavor! My husband loved it as well and said I should make this for some guests next week. And I agree. It's quick and easy and it looks beautiful on a plate. I do agree with one other reviewer that you need to watch your pizza dough. Mine only took 12 minutes because it was a thin crust dough from Pillsbury. I just set the timer for 10 minutes and then kept my eye on it after that. I definitely recommend trying this pizza!
