My husband would eat a plain cheese or pepperoni pizza every night of the week if I'd let him. And while I'm a big fan of the everyday pizza, I like to take it out of the norm sometimes and play around with new flavors, which is how this Thai Curry Pizza Recipe came to be.
An easy dish to make, this homemade pizza is made with simple ingredients that can be found any any grocery store or online. It's also really adaptable to your tastes. I like things a little milder, so I used red curry paste, which is the mildest version you can find, but you could use a yellow curry sauce or green curry sauce(the hottest) as the pizza base if you choose.
- Pizza dough (or a pre-made pizza crust)
- Red curry paste
- Coconut milk (don't use light coconut milk)
- Red onion
- Red pepper
- Yellow pepper
- Lime Juice (from fresh limes)
PRO TIP: If you don't have a pizza pan, you can stretch the dough out on the underside of a sheet pan. Using the underside helps circulate air under the pie, which will result in a crispier crust. It's also easier to then get off the pan to cut.
Tips and Tricks
- The sauce is very thin, but use all of it for the best flavor.
- Start with 1 teaspoon of curry paste and taste and adjust. Only you know how much curry flavor you really want.
- If you want, you can use naan bread instead of pizza crust - you'll just have to adjust the baking time a bit. (I'll give directions for that as well)
To Make a Thai Curry Naan Pizza
- Pre-cook the naan by either toasting it, or pan toasting it. If pan toasting, place the naan in a dry pan and toast for 2 minutes per side.
- Add your sauce and toppings
- Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 5 minutes
To Make a Thai Chicken Pizza
- Heat a skillet over medium heat.
- Cut up boneless skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs into bite size pieces. Season them with a teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper.
- Add olive oil to the pan, and cook chicken until golden brown cooked through.
- Continue making the pizza as directed, but add the chicken mixture to the pie along with the rest of the toppings.

Substitutions, additions and alterations:
- Instead of using red bell pepper, you can use green peppers instead.
- To the sauce, you can add fish sauce, tomato sauce, or use coconut cream instead of coconut milk. You could also use curry powder to flavor the sauce, rather than curry paste.
- Use fresh mozzarella cheese instead of low-moisture mozzarella.
- Top with green onions or fresh basil instead of or along with the cilantro.
How to store leftover pizza:
Leftovers will last in the fridge for about 2 days. Reheat in a skillet, microwave, or air fryer.
