In my mind there is no better comfort food than gluten free pizza. There’s all this great stuff piled on a crust, baked until hot and bubbly – and you’re able to eat it with one hand. Perfect!

While most of us think of pizza as Italian food – tomato sauce, cheese, maybe some sausage, you can put any kind of topping on it you like.

This recipe is pizza with an Asian influence, Thai influence to be exact. I love Thai food with all the flavor notes of sweet, spicy, sour, salty…

This is a nut free version of Thai Chicken on a pizza. I used Sunbutter in place of peanut butter to create an amazing sauce. While I don’t often see cheese in Thai food (actually I don’t think I ever see cheese in Thai food) I just don’t think pizza is pizza without some cheese! And personally, I think it goes together really well. A real fusion of flavors. For dairy free, just use dairy free cheese shreds.

For the crust, you can use a pre-made gluten free pizza crust or make your own – here’s how.

Gluten Free Nut Free Thai Chicken Pizza


1 (9 – 10 inch) gluten free pizza crust
½ cup creamy Sunbutter
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced or finely grated
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (more of less depending on the heat level you like)
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into ½ inch cubes
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 red pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
4 green onions, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes.

In a saucepan, combine the Sunbutter, water, soy sauce, lime juice, honey, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until everything is melted together.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes. Add half the Sunbutter sauce and cook for another minute, making sure the sauce fully coats the chicken.

Spread the rest of the sauce over the dough. Top with ¾ cup cheese, the chicken, red pepper slices, and green onion. Sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup cheese over the top and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the crust is done.

Top with fresh cilantro leaves and serve.


Serves 4 -6 or 2 very hungry people.
