I’m such a huge fan of anything remotely peanut-buttery – which is why I’ve happily welcomed the distinct spike in PB&J sandwiches that my own diet has experienced since having kids. Funny how that stuff works. ;)
When I’m looking for a more grown-up style dish though, peanut sauce pretty much always hits the spot, and this colorful Thai Chicken Flatbread Pizza recipe is the perfect, delicious example! It’s got a great mix of fresh flavors, some of that cheesy goodness we all love, and a sprinkling of crushed peanuts for extra crunch.
Lightening Things Up…
And before those of you watching your waistline cringe at the fact that “peanut sauce” and “pizza” are both in the title of this recipe, I’ve got some good news for you… this tasty flatbread features a lightened up peanut sauce, mozzarella (a naturally lighter cheese), a generous dose of fresh veggies, and a hearty whole wheat crust made from the new Flatbread Mix from Krusteaz®. Suddenly things are looking a whole lot brighter, right? ;) View/print the full recipe here & watch the video below to see how it’s made.
MODERN KITCHEN PARTY THEME
This wouldn’t be HWTM without a party angle, right?! ;)
On that note… I’m also excited to share some colorful Modern Kitchen Theme Party Ideas with you today, as seen in the Thai Chicken Flatbread video & inspired by the colors of the recipe itself. This theme & look would work well for everyday entertaining, a fun brunch, or a Modern Kitchen Bridal Shower. Read on for lots of fun DIY ideas + free printables!
I wanted to the look of this theme to be fresh & modern, and the execution to be budget-friendly, so I utilized some of my regular home decor & stuck with inexpensive DIY projects like paper garlands and tile coasters. (You can purchase plain white tiles at Home Depot for 13 cents each!)
1. Paper Garland – I wanted produce to be a key element in this design, so we hand-cut fruit and veggie silhouettes and glued them to baker’s twine for a fun paper banner that has kind of a retro-mod feel. (Download the printable produce silhouettes here.)
2. DIY Tile Table Runner – This project is surprisingly simple, inexpensive, and packs a big, colorful punch! It’s made from washi tape, colored masking tape, and simple white bathroom tiles. I’m going to post a separate DIY on this later.
