Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken Pizza with Cashew Butter Sauce

The grilled lemongrass chicken was so good that I wanted to have those flavors again.   Instead of repeating that same meal,  I used an entirely different format for those flavors–a pizza!  I decided to make the cashew butter dip as the sauce for the pizza along with an assortment of tasty toppings.  I tried something new and added roasted red peppers for color and flavor.  The grilled chicken was great with the red peppers and cashew sauce.  I topped the pizza with fresh mozzarella, jalapenos, cilantro, and bean sprouts which added a nice freshness and crunch.  The cashew sauce is rich so it only needs a thin layer of sauce on the bottom.  All the flavors worked great together and it was fun to eat the same dish in a whole new way!
