Chicken Tandori Pizza recipe


For dough (for two large pizza)
Maida               3 cups
Salt                  1 tsp
Yeast                1 sachet or 1 tsp
Olive oil             2-3 tbsp
(or any cooking oil)
Sugar                ½ tsp

For toping:
Chicken boneless cubes   1 cup
Yogurt                                         2 tbsp
Shan chicken tandoori masala      2 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste                       1 tsp
Capsicum (cut in cubes)               1 cup
Onion (cut in cubes)                     1 cup
Pizza cheese                              shredded
(You can also use cheddar and mozzarella cheese)

Marinate the chicken with yogurt, ginger garlic paste and tandoori masala and keep it aside for about 2 hrs then cook this chicken in a frying pan.
Mix sugar and yeast in half a cup of lukewarm water and set aside fro 10-15 minutes. You will see frothy top which would indicate that the yeast is active and you can use it.
            In a large bowl mix flour and salt, add the yeast mixture. Knead dough with some more water until it forms a ball, just like chapatti dough.
            Brush a big bowl with some oil and place the dough, cover with plastic wrap and let it sit fro 2 hours on the kitchen counter. The dough will rise and will become 3 times bigger than the actual size.
            Punch the dough to let the air out, knead again and leave it for another 45 minutes until it rises again. Your pizza dough is ready now. Divide it n three portions.
            Roll one portion with a rolling pin according to the size of your pan and place it inside the pan.
Then combine chilli garlic sauce and tomato sauce and place 2-3 tbsp on top of your pizza. Sprinkle half of the cheese on top. Then scatter chicken cubes, onion, capsicum on the top then again sprinkle the remaining cheese.
Cook pizza in a preheated oven, set on 230 oC until the pizza fully rises in about 5 minutes. Lower temperature to 180 oC and bake for another 5 minutes or until golden crust on top. Cut into slices and enjoy


  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Safety Training last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.
