I absolutely adore Thai food! I think it is delicious and offers a unique taste to my palette from time-to-time. I must admit that anything with curry in it is usually a favorite for me, but my second choice of flavors when it comes to Thai food . . . anything with peanut sauce. Man, it’s good! When I saw this recipe I had to make it immediately . . . which I did even though I didn’t have fresh cilantro on hand. I didn’t have mozzarella cheese either, but I had a reduced fat blend and I figured I would just use that instead. Well, the results were stellar so I can’t wait to actually eat this with fresh cilantro because I know that will make it taste even better. The peanut sauce is DELICIOUS on these. It had the familiar tastes of traditional Thai peanut sauce with a little bit of tang. I also loved how the tortilla was slightly crunchy when the pizza was done baking. It was like eating a very thin-crust pizza. These were super fast to pull together . . . especially because I used the cooked chicken that I buy from costco.
The last thing I can tell you about these pizzas is that after I was finished eating my pizza . . . I wished I could eat another one right away!
