Thai Chicken and Pickled Garlic Pizza

Chris and I definitely view pizza as something that is beyond your basic marinara and mozzarella.  Maybe it’s living in New York and experiencing pies varying from those topped with duck eggs (which our 2 1/2 year old ate, whhhaattt?!) to ones smothered in fontina and brined lemons.  We think of the pizza crust more as a blank canvas that allows our culinary minds to wander.  We love going out for Thai food and this is an easy way to bring those bold, delicious flavors home.  The peanut sauce we made was really delcious and made enough to feed a small army, so we put the remaining sauce in a mason jar (hey, I am a girl, I freaking love mason jars-damn you Pinterest!), and will use it for something like cold sesame noodles or a thai chicken salad during the week.  Happy eating!
