Thai Peanut Chicken Pizza

February 2, 2010

Well, Cooking Light magazine has done it again. They’ve created a fantastic recipe that’s healthy, easy, and so delicious you won’t want to share! I absolutely love this pizza as served by California Pizza Kitchen–but it has two problems. The first is how fatty it is and the second is that I live 4000 miles away from the closest CPK :) So when I tried this pizza I was instantly satisfied. The taste is exactly like CPK, but without the guilt. You just gotta try this!!

3/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup soy sauce
