Yup, I am one of those people who thought they reviewed this and had not. I love love love this recipe. I am not longer in a city that has CPK's and missed this pizza sorely. This has filled a void in my life. Thank you. It is 100% perfect.
The sauce was awe-some. Even without some of the specialty items (e.g. oyster sauce), it was still really yummy. I can't wait to try it with all the right stuff! Thanks so much for posting this!!
Super easy and super good. I can't tell my hubby if I am making something "Thai" because he thinks all Thai food is hot. Weird! :) He and my 16 year old son ate one whole pizza themselves. This would make a great appetizer for unexpected company. I like Graffeettee's idea about trying different sprouts. Maybe sprinkle them on after baking. UPDATE: I have made this several times now. We love it! I leave out the chilis for obvious reasons though I think it would be good. I just used a Pillsbury pizza crust in the tube yesterday.
