recipe of the week: thai chicken pizza

i'm into easy food.
don't get me wrong.  i'm also into cook for hours but it's totally worth every moment food.
but this particular recipe falls into the first category.  easy.  cheap.  quick.

thai chicken pizza

1 pound of chicken breasts, cooked through and shredded
1 jar of peanut satay sauce (you'll find it in the asian section of most groceries. i got mine at trader joe's.)
1 ball of pizza dough
mozzarella cheese (i use about a cup)
1 carrot, shredded
3 or so green onions, chopped (green part only)
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
however much cilantro you want
thai basil if it's in season (it wasn't here :-( )

begin by combining your shredded chicken and satay sauce

 then roll out your dough on a floured surface.
 (this is a good time to play with the dough if you dare)
then roll the dough into a shape. i chose the rectangle this particular evening because it's waaaay easier than a circle for me.
 top with the chicken satay mixture
  and the cheese
 and veggies (i didn't have red onion this night...oops!)
  bake at 375 for about 12 minutes (depending on your oven of course)

 and enjoy!  

i cut 12 pieces of this pizza.  assuming a serving size of 2 pieces (which is what i usually have) here's what you're looking at according to
