Recipe for Spicy Peanut Chicken Pizza

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
2 generous TBSP Spicy Peanut Sauce
1 medium chicken breast, poached and shredded, seasoned with salt and pepper
3 TBSP chopped scallions, white and light green sections
2 TBSP coarsely chopped cilantro
½ cup shredded 2% mozzarella cheese
Kosher salt
Black pepper
Canola oil for brushing crust

Preheat oven to 500 degrees with pizza stone inside for 20-30 minutes. 
On parchment paper, roll out pizza dough to 8-10 inch round. Create a slightly raised edge by pinching or rolling.
Spread spicy peanut sauce over dough to within ¼ inch of edge. 
Top with shredded chicken, scallions, cheese, salt and pepper.  Brush crust with canola oil.
Place parchment paper and pizza on pizza stone.  Bake for 3 minutes. Slide parchment paper out from under pizza. 
Cook an additional 2-5 minutes (or longer if not using a pizza stone), or until bubbly and crust is brown.
Let cool for 2 minutes. 
Top with cilantro, cut and serve.
