Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chili or vegetable oil
  • 3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot
  • 1 can (8 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili puree with garlic
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 package (16 ounces) ready-to-serve original pizza crust (12 to 14 inches in diameter)
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 2 ounces small snow (Chinese) pea pods (1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup sliced red onion
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Heat wok or 10-inch skillet over high heat. Add oil; rotate wok to coat side. Add chicken and gingerroot; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in tomato sauce, chili puree and soy sauce.
  • 2
    Spoon chicken mixture onto pizza crust to within 1/2 inch of edge. Top with water chestnuts, pea pods and onion. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • 3
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until pizza is hot and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro.

  • Try topping the pizza with other Asian vegetables. Instead of or in addition to the water chestnuts, add sliced green onions, bamboo shoots and sliced mushrooms.
  • Cutting the pizza into small wedges or squares turns this recipe into a great appetizer.
  • Add an Asian cabbage salad and fresh pineapple.
