Ready to spice up your pizza game with a tasty Thai twist? This Thai Veggie pizza is loaded with a creamy peanut sauce and colorful fresh veggies. And it's easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner! Vegetarian and vegan, too.
We do a lot of cooking in our house, but there's one thing that makes the list nearly every week. Pizza! We love making homemade pizzas, and we turn it into a family activity most weekends.
So I thought I would experiment with some new topping ideas. Given that Thai is one of our all time favorite cuisines, I decided to shake up pizza night with this Thai inspired creation.
It turned out totally delicious. And it was so easy that I may have to add this recipe to our weeknight dinner rotation!
Tips & Variations
Pizza Crust: I used my own homemade pizza crust recipe for the dough. But you can use any pizza dough recipe that you prefer, store bought pizza dough, or even a premade pizza crust. They will all work just fine. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time based on the package instructions so you don't burn your pizza!
The Peanut Sauce: This recipe includes my own homemade peanut sauce. If you want to make this even easier, you can substitute a store bought sauce. I like this one from Annie Chun. Just be sure to check the label, as some brands are not vegetarian friendly.
Mix up the Toppings! Feel free to experiment with your own favorite veggies for the toppings. I used bell peppers and yellow onions. But shiitake mushrooms, red onions, or broccoli would be great choices. You can also swap mandarin oranges or mango slices for the pineapple!
