Ingredients

  • 1 recipe of your favorite pizza crust (see my whole wheat recipe below)
  • 1 large carrot, cut into small strips or grated
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter almond butter is also delicious!
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup, honey or sugar
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup ketchup (trust me on this one) make sure it has no corn syrup and low sugar
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. When dough is ready, press it out thinly onto a large pizza pan (at least 14 inches diameter), or two smaller pizza pans. I like a thin crust for this pizza.

  2. In a bowl, or a food processor, combine all sauce ingredients. Stir together or blend.

  3. Spread sauce generously onto pizza. You might have a a little leftover (makes for a great veggie dip!). Sprinkle with carrots and peppers. Bake for 7-10 min or until crust is just golden brown.

  4. Once out of the oven, sprinkle with remaining ingredients: cilantro, bean sprouts, green onions and peanuts.

  5. Cut into slices and serve.
