  • 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.
  • 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 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 damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  • preheat oven to 350 degrees f (175 degrees c).
  • 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 on lightly oiled pizza pans.
  • to make the peanut sauce, place peanut butter, tea, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a blender. add chili oil, ginger, and honey; process until smooth.
  • in a medium bowl, combine the chicken, sesame seeds, paprika, chile peppers, salt, and 3 tablespoons of the peanut sauce. mix until the chicken is evenly coated. spread the remaining peanut sauce evenly over pizza dough. top with chicken, green onions, and cheese.
  • bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. garnish with carrots and cilantro.
