Wheeler is one of many tiny hamlets along the beautiful, rugged coast of Oregon-about halfway between Tillamook and Seaside. Guidos restaurant is no longer in Wheeler but memory of this pizza is strong in my mind. Though I have had pizza all over this country Guidos Thai Pizza is by far the best pizza I have ever had. You know how it is when you are so looking forward to something only to get there and the place is closed? You know, that sinking feeling with the knowledge you will never have that pizza (or “that dish”) again? Ugh.
Well, this is my rendition and I think Phil might be proud. Our memories are not always as good as we think they are and I do not believe my pizza is as good as Phil’s but…it’s mine. This is not a pizza for the feint of heart as it does take some work. (but so worth it) Of course it can be done all at once but I divide this into a two day project. I make the crust, poach the chicken and make the peanut sauce (if I don’t already have it in the fridge) the first day and assemble and then eat it the second day. I do usually always have the peanut sauce in my fridge because when I use the last of it I make it again.
