Reggae Reggae Spicy Chicken Pizza

February 6, 2012
Winter Nights, Winter FeastsOn a cold snowy night a spicy chicken pizza really hits the spot.  Making your own pizza means you can be as creative as you want and you never need to wonder if the pizza chain or restaurant will give you value for money.  My reggae chicken pizza was a real treat and I even made my own garlic and rosmary dough, not bad for a new cook.

This dough method was adapted from ‘Sam Stern’s Student Cookbook’ (Walker Books, 2009).

Dough Ingredients:

450g Strong White Bread Flour, 1tsp Salt, 1tsp Castor Sugar, 2 x 7g Satchets Fast Action Dried Yeast, 3 tsp Garlic Granules, 4 tbsp. Rosemary, 300ml/ 1/2 pint Warm Water, 2 tbsp. Olive Oil.
Dough Method:

1. Sift flour, salt into a large bowl.
2. Add sugar, yeast water, garlic, rosemary and oil. (Do not use boiling water wait until it is warm.)
3. Work into a soft dough add more water if dry and more flour if dough is too sticky.
4. Knead dough on a flat surface for 25 – 30 minutes until soft and elastic.
5. Put dough ball into a bowl and cover witha tea towel.
6. Leave dough to double in size in a warm place for an hour.

Saffy’s Dough Tip

Chicken Breasts (cut into small chunks), Red Onion, Cheddar Cheese, Reggae Reggae Sauce, Red Chilli (deseeded, chopped into small pieces) 1/2 jar Tomato Pasta sauce, Garlic, Tomato Pur’ee, Garlic Granules, Paprika, All-Purpose Seasoning, 1/4 Red Pepper (chopped into small pieces), Rocket, Basil, grated Parmesan and a handful of Black Olives.

Method to cook pizza:

2. Mix pasta sauce, tomato puree, 1/4 bottle of reggae reggae sauce and chopped red chilli into another bowl.
3. Pre-heat oven to 230 degrees C/ Gas 6.
3. Roll out the dough and leave to rise for roughly 10 minutes. (Sam suggest’s to cover with a carrier bag).
4. Heat a little olive oil in a wok for frying chicken.
5. Spread sauce over the dough.
6. Layer the pizza with the toppings (except the parmesan and basil).
7. Start frying the chicken.
8. Bake for 15 mins.
9. Once the chicken has been cooked, spread the chicken pieces onto the pizza with a sprinkling of parmesan and basil leaves over the top.
10. Bake for a further 5 minutes, the base should be crispy, the dough should be soft and the top should be bubbling.
