    Recipe to make spicy chicken pizza:

      How to make the toppings:

      • In a flat pan, heat some oil, add onion slices and capsicum slices.
      • Saute for just two minutes, collect in a cup and set aside. Veggies should retain the crunchiness hence do not overcook.
      • To the same pan, add some more oil.
      • Add boneless chicken pieces and cook for five minutes in low heat.
      • Sauteing is enough to cook the chicken and add salt, pepper powder & chilli powder.
      • Finally as an optional ingredient, add soya sauce, mix and switch.
      • Keep these pieces aside.

      How to fix the pizza base:

      • In around two hours, the pizza dough enlarged and doubled in size.
      • Open the lid, give a soft punch to remove the extra air. Do not knead again.
      • Gently collect the dough, cut into four equal portions.
      • Dust the workspace, flatten the dough and roll into a thick circular base.
      • Spread pizza sauce generously. You can use tomato ketchup if you don't have pizza sauce. Click here for homemade pizza sauce.
      • Spread a layer of grated mozzarella cheese/pizza cheese on top of the sauce.
      • Now top with half cooked capsicum and onions.
      • Scatter cooked chicken pieces in random fashion.
      • Sprinkle lavish quantity of dry oregano leaves and red chilli flakes or pizza toppings powder.
      • For cheese burst chicken pizza spread another layer of grated cheese.
      • Preheat the oven to 200°C with the baking tray in.
      • Place the assembled pizza base in the baking tray/middle grill and bake for 8-10mins.
      • Slice and serve the yum spicy chicken pizza.

      How to cook on stove top/pan chicken pizza:

      • To cook on top of the stove, dry heat an old heavy based flat pan for five minutes.
      • Now place the assembled pizza base carefully on the hot pan, keep the stove in low heat.
      • Cover with a doom lid, cook for 15 full minutes undisturbed in low heat.
      • If you are using readymade pizza base bought from the store, then just fill the toppings.
      • And cook just for 5mins on stove top until the cheese melts down.



      Tips: 1) For making veg pizza, just replace the chicken pieces with paneer/mushroom and follow the same recipe. 2) To get a properly doubled dough, use dry yeast which is newly bought & active. If the water does not get a foamy mix in a few minutes means the yeast is not working. 3) Furthermore, if you are concerned about using yeast, still you can do pizza without doubling the dough. But the pizza would be like a flatbread without compromising the taste. 4) Also, if you are using a readymade pizza base, reduce the baking time to 5 mins until cheese melts. And for stovetop time it would be 8 mins. 5) Finally, the toppings are purely our choice like capsicum, onions, olives, peppers, baby corn and mushrooms. Use whatever you like, but do not crowd the pizza with toppings as it is difficult to bake.
