DIRECTIONS

PREHEAT THE OVER TO 450!!  It is best if your oven has been at 450 for at least 30 minutes before you put your pizza in.  

Whisk the peanut butter, hoisin, honey, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, sriracha, oyster sauce, fish sauce and DICED jalapeno in a bowl.  It makes kind of a lot.  More than you need for one pizza, certainly.   You can easily toss this sauce - warmed together with the same veggies and whatever meat you opt for - with pasta or soba noodles or whatever.  Here is a good looking version HERE.  But I only point this out so you can get a visual.  So - do not throw away your extra sauce!

I marinated the fake chicken in the fridge for several hours in a little of the sauce.  I then opted to pan sear it a little bit - just to give it some color.  This is an optional step.

Then - when you have all your vegetables properly cut up - roll out your dough.  Top it with some sauce - not too much though!  You do not want soggy pizza.  Then layer your sliced jalapeno, the veggies (NOT the lime or cilantro, though), cheese & chicken.  

Bake the pizza for 15-20 minutes or until the crust looks golden & your cheese is melted.  Garnish with sprouts, cilantro & a squeeze of lime.  Drizzle some sweet chili sauce sparingly (it is very sweet) & serve!
