Recipe | Thai Pizza with Broccoli, Mushrooms & Red Peppers

Vegetarian Thai Pizza
We have lots of favorite pizza restaurants–a favorite for New York style pizza, a favorite for Italian style pizza, and a favorite for cheap pizza. Glass Nickel is our favorite restaurant for pizza pizza–it’s just good, respectable, everyday pizza. And we always get the same thing when we go there: the Thai Pie.

The Thai Pie is a pizza topped with peanut sauce, cheese, broccoli, onions, red peppers, and chicken. Obviously the chicken is problematic, so we substitute mushrooms for the chicken pieces. Peanut sauce on pizza (especially pizza with cheese) should not work–it shouldn’t! But somehow it does. I’ve had Thai pizza elsewhere, but I swear, Glass Nickel’s is the best by far.

I don’t think my vegetarian Thai pizza quite measures up to Glass Nickel’s version, but it’s still quite tasty–I just can’t pin down the flavors of the peanut sauce they use. If you don’t want to make your own peanut sauce, the peanut sauce made by Native is pretty darn good (and it’s vegetarian–a lot of peanut sauces are not, so check the label!)

    this looks so good! California Pizza Kitchen used to have a Thai pizza but I haven't seen it in a year…must be discontinued!

    Yum! I have a mild addiction to peanut sauce. I have never thought of having it on pizza though. You've opened up a whole new world for me. It sounds delicious!
