Thin-Crust Thai Chicken Pizza (like Papa Murphy's)

Thin-Crust Thai Chicken Pizza (like Papa Murphy's)

This pizza is hot and sweet and amazingly delicious: A crispy thin crust topped with sweet chili sauce, grilled chicken, zucchini slices, crushed red pepper, onions, and mozzarella cheese.

Yield: 

one 16-inch pizza (8 large thin slices)

Ingredients: 

Crust:

1/2 cup warm water (115 degrees)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
1 teaspoon dry yeast

Sauce:

1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger root, optional

Toppings:

1 large chicken breast, grilled and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1/2 small zucchini, thinly sliced
2 green onions, sliced (green part only)
2 tablespoons diced red onions
8 ounces (2 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
Crushed red pepper flakes
Additional sweet chili sauce, for drizzling (optional)

Instructions: 

1. To make crust, place warm water and salt into a medium mixing bowl. Add a cup of the flour and the yeast, and stir. Add remaining flour (1/3 cup) and stir or knead into a sticky dough, adding additional water if needed. Allow dough to rest, covered with a clean towel, for at least 10 minutes but up to 30-45 minutes.

If you have a bread machine, this first step can be done by putting all crust ingredients into the machine and using the dough cycle to knead for 10-15 minutes, until a soft, sticky dough is formed. Stop the machine and allow dough to rest for at least 10 minutes, or up to 30-45 minutes.

2. Liberally butter a 16-inch round pizza pan, and then with your clean buttery hands, spread dough thinly over the pan. Be gentle and have patience, as this does make a perfectly thin crust!

3. Mix together the sweet chili sauce and ginger (if using), and spread evenly over the prepared crust. Then layer the grilled chicken, half of the zucchini slices, mozzarella cheese, the rest of the zucchini slices, green onions, red onions, and cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper. Drizzle more sauce on top if desired. Let pizza rest for 15 minutes (or up to 45 minutes).

4. Bake pizza on the middle rack in a preheated 425 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until browned on top and pizza is hot. Serve and enjoy!

Tammy's Review: 

This pizza is a little hot (spicy), depending on how much sauce and red papper you use. We love it, and our children liked it also (minus the red pepper flakes), but just keep the heat in mind if you're serving to young children. :)

See my blog post about this pizza! :)

Didn't have an sweet chili sauce so had to find a recipe for that online. That pizza crust was positively the easiest crust ever! And very thin and crispy. I also added some very thinly sliced tomatoes from the garden. YUM!

I made this with a bag of mixed vegetables after removing the water using my new wave oven and it was soo good my husband ate a slice and he really don't care for cheese. This will be added to my favorite recipe collection.

This is my favorite Papa Murphy's pizza which is a seasonal item on their menu. Thank you, Tammy for posting the recipe. I use Frank's Sweet Chili Sauce and make it weekly!

Great, sturdy thin crust! I used it for a pizza tonight with alfredo sauce and pepperoni. Had 1 1/2 c sauce leftover from pasta night and piled on the toppings with no tears or bubbles!

I used my pizza stone so I had to roll out the dough to keep my fingers intact, but this helped me get the crust super thin! Delicious & buttery! Even my toddler, who usually eats only the toppings off of his slice ate two WHOLE pieces.

I'll definitely be making two next time so we have leftovers for lunch! Can't wait to try the suggested toppings!
