The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier {GIVEAWAY} & Thai Chicken Pizza

This drawing ended Monday, April 30, 2012. Please continue to enjoy the recipes included in this post by clicking on the links in green.

Some browse cookbooks for the photos, others read them like a novel. I prefer to sit and have coffee with a new cookbook, a get-to-know-you session to determine if we’ll end up good friends or simply happy to make the acquaintance. Either way, there is so much to glean from the passionate work in each one. The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier is the type of cookbook that makes you feel like you are relaxing in Ree Drummund’s kitchen watching her cook dinner while flipping through a family photo album. It is personal and I like that.

As I wrap up my review of the cookbook, I wanted to share photos of the Thai Chicken Pizza we tested last week—it was a texture-flavor sensation!  Matt gave it a 9.5, as you know is hard to come by around here, so this is one we will make over and over again.

Started with a sprouted wheat pizza crust, pre-baked for 5 minutes before topping, though we all agreed it would be great on a cauliflower pizza crust too.

Then added Mae Ploy sweet chili sauce, mozzarella cheese, and sliced Grilled Chipotle Lime Chicken Breasts already in the freezer.

And after it was baked, browned, and happy (12-15 min at 425 degrees), we added broccoli sprouts, though you can use bean sprouts too.

Fresh grated carrots and a handfuls of cilantro leaves … I cilantro.

Then finished it with peanut sauce and chopped peanuts, served with a squeeze of lime and Sriracha sauce at the table.

Disclosure: “The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier” was provide to Savoring Today by William Morrow, HarperCollins Publishers at no charge and the publisher will provide one other copy for a promotional giveaway. Savoring Today was under no obligation to review the cookbook and was not compensated for doing so. It is my goal in any review to highlight what I find positive about the book; I have no desire to be critical of recipes that do not appeal to me. Instead, I offer insights to recipe steps, ingredients, and overall “feel” from the book.  If what I have to say sounds good or reasonable to you, we probably share a similar taste in food.  It does not make one person right or wrong, as taste is personal and subjective.

    Wow! Your pizza looks great! I was happy to find you here. I’ve joined your mailing list and Facebook. The cookbook looks like a winner!

    Whether you’ll end up good friends or mere acquaintances… I know exactly what you mean. Funny, with all the books and magazines I come across, I have forged very few good friend alliances… lots of browsing but seemingly little attachment ;-). You’ve raised a very philosophical question here :). I love Thai food (in my top 3), and this pizza looks positively more-ish…

    I have heard nothing but good about the cauliflower crust, I am going to try it today. Thank you for your recipes.

    The cauliflower pizza crust sounds great and perfect for a low carb diet. I will be trying it in the very near future.
