Thai Pong Gari Grilled Pizza (Curried chicken with peanut sauce and salad)

This pizza is inspired by chicken satay, with the flavors of curried chicken and peanut sauce.  Pong Gari is the Thai name for the dry curry powder.  This pizza is wonderful.  If you are not sure if you will care for the curry glaze, go for it.  It is not overpowering at all.

Curry Glaze
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp curry powder
pinch of red pepper flakes
pinch of salt

Peanut Sauce
4 TBS smooth peanut butter
1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger (I didn't have any on hand so I used powdered)
1/8 - 1/4 tsp chili paste (this is found in the Asian section of the grocery store. Go easy on this if you don't like a lot of heat)
2 TBS soy sauce
4 TBS water

1 grilled pizza crust

1 TBS Herbed Grill Oil (see recipe on this blog-it's included on the Grilled Pizza recipe)
1 TBS grated Parmesan
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup Chunky Tomato Basil Sauce (see recipe on this blog-it's included on the Grilled Pizza recipe) 

One 6-ounce Chicken Breast, salted/peppered and grilled.  Cut into bite-size chunks

1/2 cup thinly sliced red peppers
1 cup bean sprouts
1 TBS sliced scallions
1 TBS coarsely chopped roasted peanuts
1 TBS coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

Combine all of the Curry Glaze ingredients in a small bowl.  In another small bowl, whisk together the Peanut Sauce ingredients.

Brush the grilled side of the pizza crust with the Herbed Grill Oil.  Dust with the Parmesan and sprinkle the mozzarella on top.  Next, drop spoonfuls of the Chunky Tomato Basil Sauce onto the pizza.  Add the chicken and drizzle the Curry Glaze over all.

Grill the pizza or place under the broiler of your oven.  Just before serving, top the pizza with the salad ingredients.  Drizzle the Thai Peanut Sauce over the salad. that is a good pizza.
