Vegan Crab Rangoon Pizza

We all have Dustin's husband David to thank for the inspiration for this recipe. So thank you, David!
- 1 batch pizza dough, divided link above
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 2 batches Crab Rangoon filling link above
- 1/4 cup Saucy Mozzarella link above
- 2 Tbs canola oil
- 2 vegan wonton wrappers cut into strips
- 1/4 cup Sweet Thai Chili Sauce link above
- 2 scallions chopped or thinly sliced on the bias
- 1/2 tsp black sesame seeds
- Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C, or gas mark 8). Lightly dust a 12-inch (30-cm) pizza pan with all-purpose flour.
- On a lightly floured surface, stretch or roll out the dough to 12 inches (30 cm). Transfer to the prepared pizza pan, and brush the olive oil over the entire dough. Bake for 6 minutes, and remove from the oven.
- Spread the rangoon filling in an even layer over the crust and top with the mozzarella. Bake for an additional 12 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is browned on the edges and bottom.
- While the pizza is baking, line a small plate with paper towels.
- Heat the canola oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add the wonton strips and fry for 5 to 15 seconds, or until crisped and golden; transfer to the paper towel–lined plate. When cool to the touch, crush into smaller pieces.
- Drizzle the finished pizza with the Thai chili sauce, then sprinkle with the crushed wontons, scallions, and sesame seeds. Cut into 8 slices, and serve hot.
