Thai peanut sauce recipe (used for pizza)

So the other day I made pizza, but the camera was dead, so I took a picture on my phone.  Now my phone is being a weirdy and not letting me upload the pictures how I usually do, so I'll keep working on getting a picture... It wasn't that good of quality anyway, but visuals are neat.

Anyway, on one half we did "BBQ Bean" and the other half was Thai chicken.  The bean side had chili beans, corn, BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is the way to go, people), crushed tortilla chips, and cheese.  It was alright.  I think it would be better with onions and tomatoes.  The other half was dang good! I highly recommend it.  It's grilled chicken, broccoli, julienne carrots, pineapple, snow pea pods, and peanuts with a spicy peanut sauce.  For the cheese we used pepperjack.
Here's the peanut sauce recipe we used.  I think it would also be awesome just on rice with a stir-fry of veggies.  For all you people I know who have experiences Thailand, I'm not too confident in the authenticity of it, but it is tasty ;)

Thai peanut sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • Just stir it all together! For ours I used regular vinegar, omitted the sesame oil and put in some Frank's Red Hot.


  1. You might have been too young to remember, but dad taught an Indonesian cooking class at the college. So so good. I love peanut sauce. Next time you are home for a visit we'll get him to make us some yummy food.

  2. I remember him making a Thai meal one time, but I think I was too picky at that point to appreciate it. Next time we're together, I'm in!
