Thai Chicken Pizza ( CPK Style)

Thai Cuisine has been my favorite for quite some time. Love the flavors of peanut, lemon grass, galangal, curry powder , coconut and many more flavors which are often used in Thai Cuisine. Kids love to have pizza once a week at least, usually its Friday. 

We have been to this awesome pizza place  called CPK ( California Pizza Kitchen). Love this place for the variety of pizza flavors they have. My favorites have been Thai Chicken Pizza and Chipotle Chicken Pizza. Thai Chicken Pizza, with peanut flavored sauce, topped with  carrots, chicken, crushed peanuts, chopped cilantro, bean sprouts and lots of cheese.  You can also add some basil leaves, tomatoes or any of your favorite veggies or meat. So weekly pizza night is getting a new twist today with Thai Flavors.
