This is based on a Rachael Ray recipe and is so good and different I can’t stop thinking about it. Yumm! Super fun night in with a movie dinner.
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
1 pizza dough, any brand
1/2 cup duck sauce or plum sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 package (2 cups) shredded provolone or Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tsp. vegetable oil
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. peanut butter
2 tsp. hot sauce
1 tsp. grill seasoning
2 fake chicken cutlets
2 scallions, chopped (optional)
1/2 c. bean spouts (optional)
1/4 c. cilantro leaves, chopped (optional)
1/4 c. chopped peanuts (optional)
Form pizza crust on pizza pan or cookie sheet. Top with duck or plum sauce – spread it around like you would pizza sauce. Sprinkle the pizza with some crushed red pepper flakes then top with cheese and peppers. Bake until golden and bubbly according to pizza dough directions.
Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine vegetable oil, soy sauce and peanut butter with hot sauce and grill seasoning. Use the microwave to loosen up peanut butter if it is too cold to blend into sauce, 10 seconds ought to do it. Add chicken and coat evenly with mixture. Let stand 10 minutes then grill chicken cutlets 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until firm. Slice chicken into very thin strips.
Top the hot, cooked pizza with chicken, scallions, sprouts and cilantro. Garnish pizza with peanuts, cut into 8 wedges and serve. This could also be cut into smaller pieces and serves as an appetizer.
