100 Favorite Dishes: Galactic Pizza's Thailander

itemprop

As a countdown to the Best of the Twin Cities 2010, coming this spring, Hot Dish is serving up a hundred of our favorite local dishes. Send your own nominations to hotdish @citypages.com.

We know that this pizza might sound like a hard sell. We know because we have had to do some major sweet talking every time we pressure a Thailander virgin into sampling this delicious merger of pad Thai and pizza. But trust us; every single person we've wooed with this pie has fallen in deep, obsessive love. It starts with spicy Thai peanut sauce that is tangy and buttery, fresh mozzarella cheese, free-range chicken (or super-yummy mock chicken), and all the fixings a pad Thai lover comes to expect (bean sprouts, green onion, shredded carrots, cilantro, crushed peanuts). So how addicting is this tasty order? It may not be love at first site, but it is an enduring love.
