Gourmet Tandoori Chicken Pizza

Gourmet Tandoori Chicken Pizza

I love making pizzas with different sauces and toppings, this time I have chosen Gourmet Tandoori chicken pizza recipe for the weekend. If you’re looking for a pizza that has a lot of flavor and is a little different from the rest, then this is an easy and delicious recipe to make that is sure to become a favorite.

I have marinated the chicken using tandoori spices and yogurt to give an authentic Indian flavors to the pizza along with home made spicy pizza sauce. Homemade pizza sauces always taste better than pre-prepared sauces and it is very easy to prepare. This spicy pizza sauce recipe contains plenty of tomatoes, onion, a dash of white wine, oregano and some hot red pepper for a spicy kick.

Ingredients:

Pizza Dough

1 cup luke warm water

1 tablespoon honey

2 teaspoons active dry yeast

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

 

Pizza Sauce

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper

1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 minced garlic clove

¼ cup white wine

¼ cup finely chopped onion

½ teaspoon balsamic vinegar

14 ½ oz can undrained, crushed tomatoes

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Tandoori Chicken

1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon minced jalapeno

2 tablespoons Tandoori chicken mix

2 tablespoons plain yogurt

1 tablespoon butter, melted

2 boneless chicken breasts

 

Pizza Topping

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

2 onions, sliced

1 cup Broccoli

1 red pepper, finely chopped

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:

  1. Pour luke warm water into a small bowl; stir in honey until dissolved. Add the yeast, stirring until dissolved. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add yeast mixture and olive oil; stir well to combine. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  1. Punch down the risen dough on a floured surface. Divide into two equal portions. Allow the dough to relax for a minute, and then roll each portion out into a thin circle. Place on lightly oiled pizza pans.
  1. To make the pizza sauce, Heat a pan over a medium high heat and coat it with cooking spray. Sauté the onion in the pan for three minuets then add the garlic. Sauté for 30 seconds. Stir in the wine and cook for 30 seconds. Add the oregano, tomato paste, black pepper, red pepper, and tomatoes. Turn the heat down and simmer for 20 minutes until thick. Remove from the heat, stir in the vinegar, and allow cooling.
  1. For Tandoori Chicken, combine first 5 ingredients, coat the chicken breast with the resulting mixture (plastic gloves will keep your hands from turning red). Pour the butter over the marinating chicken breasts and stir to coat well. Prepare hot grill; grill the chicken for 5-7 minutes per side (discard marinade). Remove from the grill and set a side. Once cooled, cut the chicken in to small strips.

7.   Spread the pizza sauce evenly over pizza dough then add the ½ cup of mozzarella cheese Top with chicken and rest of the pizza toppings. Sprinkle on rest of the mozzarella and Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Garnish with cilantro.
