Have you ever had Thai pizza in a restaurant? It’s so good! This version has summer zucchini, pickled onions (NOT raw!), a smattering of carrots, and your choice of chicken or pork. Sweet Chili Sauce brings it all together with a nice little kick!
This morning I ambitiously decided to blow all the leaves and debris off my back porch, and I definitely got my hair stuck in the leaf blower. Stuck for real. Like, sit hunched over for 15 minutes to untangle my hair stuck.
I’m not often motivated to do yard work on a random weekday, but when I am, it’s always right after I’ve washed and straightened my hair. So dumb, right? And then I’m all, oh I don’t need to put my hair up, I’m just blowing these leaves real quick. **One giant rat’s nest later**
I’m going to file away this information for next time Eric pulls out the leaf blower to clean up Truman after a backyard haircut. Leaf blowers and hair do NOT MIX.
Have you guys ever been to the California Pizza Kitchen? Such a great restaurant. (I’m inclined to think that about ANY pizza place though. Pizza is like sex…even when it’s bad, it’s good.) They have a Thai pizza there that is delicious, and that’s where the idea for this recipe came from. I like mine because there are even more veggies. If you wanted, you could leave out the pork/chicken altogether and go vegetarian.
This might be a good idea if you have a garden that is currently overflowing with zucchini. Ours is not. We planted late this year, so I just picked our first little zucchini today! I was basically just as giddy as the kids when we found it this morning.
What are you doing with all your summer produce? I’m going to need some more ideas here soon!
One last thing: do you know what pickled onions are? In this case it’s just a red onion that you soak in some lime juice for a few minutes to cut the bite. I do NOT like raw red onion (stinky breath for daaaays) but pickled? Gimme. (Especially on tacos. Swoon.) They are baked post-pickling in this recipe, but the lime flavor still comes through and it’s amazing. And it only takes 15 minutes to pickle while you’re prepping the other stuff anyway. BOOM.
This recipe was originally posted by me on I Heart Naptime. I was a contributor for Jamielyn’s blog last year, but I figure you guys want the recipes too!
Here’s the Cuban Mojo Marinated Pork I chopped up and added to this pizza. (This is THEE most visited recipe on my site):
Crockpot Thai Steak Salad with Peanut-Hoisin Sauce << slow cooker summer meals ftw!!
Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Peanut-Lime Sauce << Perfect for summer grilling!
Blackberry Ricotta Pizza with Basil << this pizza is an unexpected combination but it is SO GOOD!
More Thai pizzas! I’m telling you, it’s a thing:
