Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce
Recipe type: sauce
  • ¼ cup chopped garlic
  • 6 tablespoons peeled chopped fresh ginger
  • 4 ½ cups natural or low-sugar peanut butter
  • ¼ cup hot chili sauce
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons crushed red chile flakes
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  1. Place all ingredients, except coconut milk and cilantro, into a food processor, and puree until smooth.
  2. With processor still running, slowly add the coconut milk to mixture, allowing it to emulsify.
  3. Add the cilantro, just pulsing the processor to distribute it (over processing will turn the sauce green). The sauce will be somewhat runny, but will solidify when refrigerated.
  4. Use a spatula to spread sauce evenly on pizza dough.
  5. Use 4 ounces of sauce on a 10-inch base and 6 ounces on a 14-inch base.
