Spicy Chicken Pizza

June 6, 2012
Friendship Food

Friendship food is food that cheers you up and food that you can share. Pizza is perfect friendship food, definitely not for a Bridget Jones lonely moment.  This pizza is gooey, but much lower in fat and salt then the average pizza, especially lower than those in Pizza chains.  I decided to make my own spicy tomato sauce and added elements that just make pizza perfection.

Ingredients:

450g strong white bread flour, 1tsp salt, 1 tsp, caster sugar, 2 x 7g sachets of super fast action dried yeast, 300ml warm water, 3tbsps oil, 2tbsps garlic granules, 400g passata, 1/2 tbsp mixed herbs, 1/2tbsp oregano, 1/2tbsp basil, 3 chicken breasts (washed, prepared and chopped into small pieces), 1 red pepper (washed, deseeded and chopped into small pieces), 1 red onion (washed and chopped into small pieces), 2tsps paprika, 3tsps cayenne chili pepper,  1tsp black pepper, hot pepper sauce, 250g low fat grated cheddar cheese, 2 spring onions (washed and chopped into small pieces).



Method:
1. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl.
2. Add sugar, yeast, water, garlic granules and oil.
3. Work into a soft dough, if it is too sticky add flour, it is is too dry add water.
4. Knead the dough for 18 minutes on a floured flat surface.
5. Put the dough in a bowl and cover with a wet tea towel.
6. Leave to double in size in a warm place for an hour.
7. During this time fry the chicken in the oil until it is browned and cooked all the way through.
8. Chop up the vegetables and put them to the side.
9. Heat up the passata in a pan and add the herbs and spices. Keep stirring till heated through.
10. After the dough has risen knead again for 2 minutes.
11. Roll out the dough and leave to rise for 10 minutes on a lightly oiled tray.
12. After 10 minutes spread the sauce on the dough.
12. Top the pizza as you like with all of the ingredients except the spring onions and hot pepper sauce.
13. Pre heat the oven to 230 degrees C / Gas mark 6
14. Bake for 17 minutes.
15. Sprinkle on the spring onions and drizzle on the hot pepper sauce.
16. Cook for 5 more minutes.
