Thai Spicy Chicken Pizza ( Pizza Karpow Kai )


Yes the title is correct! Thailand has influences from other countries and although not very common, we do have pizza! This is my own special recipe for Thai pizza. The main part of the pizza is Kaprow Kai - you can see this recipe elsewhere on this site, it is a spicy chicken mince and as a result the pizza is very unusual, with no tomato and a very different flavour. Use a mild cheese like gouda or cheddar so as not to smother the flavour of the mince.

Ingredients for 2 people
200 gms Wheat Flour
1 1/2 Tablespoon Yeast
1/2 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoon Oil
80 ml Water

Ingredients for the Topping
150 gms Chicken Mince
1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
1 Tablespoon Light Soya Sauce
4 Red Chillies
2 Garlic Clove
2 Tablespoon Oil
4 Basil Leaves
1 Teaspoon Sugar
200 gms Cheese (Gouda or Cheddar)

Preparation of Base
1. Sift the flour into large mixing bowl.
2. Mix the yeast with 1 tablespoon of water and add to the flour.
3. Mix the sugar, salt, and oil, into the flour then add the rest of the water and kneed it until the flour is well mixed and soft.
4. Form the dough into a ball and cover with a wet towel to prevent a skin forming on the dough.
5. Leave for 30 minutes to let the yeast work and the dough rise.

Preparation For Spicy Chicken
1. Chop the chillies and garlic and fry in the oil.
2. Add the chicken mince and stir fry for 2 minutes.
3. Add the fish sauce, light soya sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar, and fry for 2 minutes.
4. Turn off the heat and add the basil and stir.

Preparation For Pizza
1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius.
2. Roll the dough into a pizza shape.
3. Put the base into the oven for 10 minutes to part cook it, this is important, the oil in the chicken will soak the bread base unless it is precooked.
4. Add the spicy chicken topping to the pizza and cook for a further 5 minutes.
5. Grate the cheese over the pizza and put it back in the oven cooking until the cheese is cooked (about 10 minutes).
