When you’re tired of that same old boring pizza, make this Thai chicken flatbread pizza with Thai yellow curry sauce to spice things up a it. It’s easy and you won’t believe how incredibly tasty it is!!
Who doesn’t love pizza? Especially when you get to make your own personal pizza that you don’t have to share with any one.
Because really, who wants to share their food?
Especially these Thai chicken flatbread pizzas. Once I took my first bite, no way anyone was going to pry that Thai pizza out of my hands.
The Thai yellow curry sauce is used as a pizza sauce and has the perfect amount of spice and flavor. Plus a little extra to dip the crust in…we’re talking serious flavor here guys.
And you know how much I love to use chicken thighs. These chicken thighs are marinaded in an umami packed marinade made with fish sauce, soy sauce, coconut sugar, lime, chili and garlic, sauteed and sliced into bite sized pieces for delicious morsels of flavor packed juiciness.
Like most of my recipes, these little flatbread pizzas are super easy to make. They only take a couple minutes to piece together, 15 minutes in the oven and you’ve got yourself a droolworthy meal.

For the pizza crust, I like to use pita flatbread. However, you can also use naan bread if you’d like, or even regular pizza dough. If you use regular pizza dough, make sure to cook according to the instructions so your dough cooks all the way.
For the Thai yellow curry paste, making your own is the preferred method. It just has so much more flavor. However, I do understand the time struggle is real. So in the links below, I’ve included a link to my favorite store bought yellow curry paste for use in a pinch.

How to Make Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza
Marinade the chicken first. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl, add the chicken and refrigerate overnight.
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken thighs, 5-7 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Once cooled, cut into bite sized pieces.
While the chicken is cooling, pour the coconut milk and curry paste into a sauce pan and heat to boiling to make the Thai yellow curry sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes, remove from heat and salt to taste. Personally, I use 1/2 tsp. of salt, but I really enjoy salt. Some may even say I have a slight salt addiction.
Next, add the diced sweet potato to the skillet and cook on medium until lightly browned and caramelized, about 7 minutes.
Lay the flatbread on a baking sheet. Spoon about 2 tbsp. of sauce over the flatbread and spread. Because the sauce isn’t super thick, I recommend going light on the sauce at this point to avoid a huge mess. Add your chicken, vegetables, and cashews.
Now at this point, if more sauce is your thing (it’s totally my thing) drizzle more sauce over the flatbreads. Finally, place 2-3 sliced of mozzarella cheese and bake in a 400 degrees oven for about 15 minutes, or until crust is browned around the edges and cheese is melted.
I like to serve the flatbread with some more of the Thai yellow curry sauce on the side for dipping the crust. I highly recommend you do the same.
