Fakeout Takeout: The Best Copycat Thai Dye Pizza Recipe

Spread the love

During a busy week, or when you are ready to relax after a long week of work, take out food is so hard to avoid. It’s fast, easy and means avoiding a dirty kitchen for at least one night out of the week. But if you are like me, the convenience doesn’t always outweigh the hefty price tag that usually comes with it! Over the years, my husband and I have developed a passion for recreating our favorite take-out recipes at home.

  1. It’s more affordable
  2. It is usually a bit healthier.
  3. I can typically incorporate more organic ingredients.

PIZZA AND DANCE PARTIES…DANCE PARTIES AND PIZZA

Jump to Recipe

Pizza…..it’s one of the favorite foods in the Fromholt household. We usually dedicate our Friday nights to what we like to call: FROMHOLT FAMILY FUN (F3) Night. It typically includes a homemade pizza, a dance party, some games, and best of all just laughing and having fun knowing that we survived another week. 🙂 My husband and I have been working from home for nearly a year now, while homeschooling a kindergartner and taming a toddler tornado. WE TIRED.

P.S. If you’re into theme night meal planning, here are a TON more ideas for pizza night. We have recipes for sheet pan pizza here and build-your-own naan pizzas here.

Pro Tip: THE CRUST MUST INCLUDE BREAD FLOUR (sorry Linds 🙁 )

Why is it that every time you find something you love at a restaurant, they take it off the menu?!? Okay. Fine. Challenge accepted Mellow Mushroom. First up on the recipes I have to share with you is our spin on a copycat Thai Dye Pizza recipe. The crust is different because we 9/10 times have the same base crust for all of our pizza recipes, but the overall flavor is pretty darn close. We have tried so many recipes but the one that always turns out the best is from Bobby Flay.

It takes just a few simple ingredients to make, and you’ll get two crusts out of this recipe!

Next Steps: Copycat Thai-Dye Pizza recipe

We’re going to top with some fresh ingredients like garlic, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, basil, and some fresh mozz and a sauce that will pack a punch ;).

Start by chopping your garlic. Add ~2 tbsp of olive oil to a bowl and add in your garlic. Use a silicone brush to coat the crust with the mixture. This will be your base. Next, cut up your tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and fresh mozzarella. Add the shredded mozzarella to the crust.

In a skillet over medium heat, add your ghee and cooked chicken. After 2 minutes of sautéing, add the curry powder and coat the chicken well allowing to sauté for another 2 minutes and remove from the heat. While your chicken is cooking, add the onions and tomatoes to the pizza. Sprinkle each tomato with a dash of salt and then add the chicken mixture. Lastly, top the pizza with the sliced mozzarella and bake the pizza @ 425F for 15 minutes. Check the center to make sure the dough has cooked and if not, bake for an additional 5 minutes.

THE FINAL TOUCHES- you can see from the picture below that my kids decided to eat one side of the cucumbers before I could snap the picture. I cant be mad that they are sneaking extra veggies (fruit?!), right?!

Let the pizza cool for 10 minutes. While the pizza is cooling, chiffonade the basil (just a fancy way to say, thinly slice). Top the cooled pizza with the slice cucumber, basil, and drizzle with sweet chili sauce. NOM! NOM!
