Ingredients

Dough

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 cups whole wheat flour (if you want a fluffy pizza crust use 1 cup whole weat flour and 1 cup white flour)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon honey


Peanut sauce:

1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon ginger -- minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon water

Chicken:

1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
5 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts -- cubed

Finish the pizza:

1 cup mozzarella cheese -- shredded
2 scallions
1/4 cup bean sprouts
2 tablespoons carrots -- shredded
peanuts, dry-roasted
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro -- chopped

Notes here: I don't have oyster sauce, but I do have fish sauce, and that's what I substitute. Some websites mention subbing soy sauce. And it looks like a lot of ingredients, but it goes together quickly. Get everything together ahead of time.

Step 1

First we're going to make a homemade salad dressing. I've never made one before, but we'll just "eyeball" everything (thanks, Rachael Ray). I decided to make a honey garlic lime dressing. Just put oil, lime zest, crushed garlic, lime juice, salt, and honey into a blender. Just blend and taste until you like it, and put it in the fridge for now. (don't use olive oil like I did!)

Step 2

Now for the dough. Throw the yeast into a mixing bowl and add warm water. I usually use my hand to test the temperature: you want it just above body temperature. Let this sit for a few minutes

Step 3

(Yes, I'm using a souffle dish - I'm making this at my fiance's and he has limited kitchen gadgets.) Add flour to a mixing bowl...

Step 4

...and then wheat germ.

Step 5

And only kosher salt, of course!

Step 6

Add the bloomed yeast and honey,

Step 7

and mix. The recipe for the dough says you don't have to let it rise, but I did, for an hour.

Step 8

At this point, let's go for the wine. Cooking with wine is much more fun, especially for the cook! I usually only like reds, but I like rieslings or gewurtztraminer with this pizza. Don't bother going for the expensive ones with this. I like just a good cheap gewurtz like Fetzers - at Sam's Club for $5.

Step 9

Ah, that's a nice amount.

Step 10

Let's cook the chicken. Olive oil in a non stick pan, eyeballing again.

Step 11

And just cook the breasts until they're done. Note again: NOT MY KITCHEN! I tried to clean it up the best I could.

11

Step 12

Take out the peanut sauce that was made ahead of time (see it looking icky in the upper left) and chop up the chicken breasts. Add just enough sauce to coat the breasts like this. Preheat the oven at this time. I'm not precise with my general cooking, 400 F is good for this.

Step 13

Get the dough and spread on a pizza pan, pizza stone, whatever you have. Poke holes all in the center with a fork, and then pre-bake for a few minutes, until it just slightly starts to brown. Or just before that, if you don't like crispy crust.

13

Step 14

Now take out the baked dough, cover it with the remaining peanut sauce, chicken, carrots, optional bean sprouts (ick), and cheese. Or cheese on the bottom, if you like.

14

Step 15

Bake until almost ready, add crushed peanuts and green onions, and then bake a few minutes longer.

15

Step 16

Toss the salad with the dressing, and serve! It's very good with a lime slice squeezed over it. I usually also squeeze a lime all around the crust after it's baked. This stuff is really good, and actually fairly easy if you have everything set up.
