    1. Pour warm water into a small bowl; stir in honey until dissolved. Add the yeast, stirring until dissolved. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add yeast mixture and olive oil; stir well to combine. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a clean, damp tea towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
    3. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    4. Punch down the risen dough on a floured surface. Divide into two equal portions. Allow the dough to relax for a minute, then roll each portion out into a thin circle. Place the pizza bases on lightly oiled pizza pans.
    5. To make the peanut sauce, place peanut butter, tea, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a blender. Add chilli oil, ginger and honey; process until smooth.
    6. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, sesame seeds, paprika, chilli peppers, salt and 3 tablespoons of the peanut sauce. Mix until the chicken is evenly coated. Spread the remaining peanut sauce evenly over pizza base. Top with chicken, spring onions and mozzarella.
    7. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Garnish with grated carrots and fresh coriander.

    I made this using a pillsbury pizza crust. Didn't have black tea, subbed lime juice. Also couldn't find red chile pepper so I put chile garlic paste in the sauce. This was FANTASTIC!  -  31 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This has potential, but it is really, really dry. It needs something moist in the topping, I think. Not sure what else to add... The peanut butter sauce is "okay", but it was pretty runny. Is the tea absolutely necessary? I heated up the sauce a bit to just thicken it so that it wouldn't just run off the crust.  -  14 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I made the base and it was a very soft dough. With the sauce, I omitted the Black Tea (but added garlic) and just stirred the ingredients to make a paste. I doubled the sauce and there was barely enough to cover the 2 bases so would triple it next time. Didn't add the paprika to the topping & don't think it's really needed. Overall this was a lovely, light pizza with a beautiful Asian flavour. Will be making again.  -  10 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
