Weekend recipe: Thai Pizza

I swear this is good. Seriously. It sounds bizarre, but it is awesome.

Walt's Thai Veggie Pizza

First up, you'll need some pizza dough. Buy some, or make it from my recipe from a few years ago. I like to make a very thin crust, so you can cut the dough recipe in half if you want.

Next up, quarter some brussels sprouts, cut up some broccoli into smallish chunks, and steam them both (together) for 7 minutes. You can cook them another way if you'd prefer, of course.

Chop up an onion and fry it in a quarter stick of butter (2 tbsp) until it's getting nice and transparent, then add 1 tbsp of sugar, turn up the heat, and cook until it's browned a tiny bit.

Chop up some seitan or tofu (about 1 lb) into small pieces.

Now make some sauce, by mixing:
1/2c peanut butter (I used the cheap Kroger stuff)
1 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp tamarind or tamarind/date (what I used) sauce
1 tbsp hot chili sauce (I used Sriracha)
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp curry powder
3 cloves garlic, minced/crushed
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp powdered ginger

Prebake the dough for 5 minutes or so at 450, then spread on the sauce and all the toppings and bake for another 10 minutes or so (pry the crust up and look to see if it's getting browned).

You can of course top with anything you want. I just happen to like Brussels sprouts.
