Homemade Chicken Tikka Pizza

I love Pizza...well who does not??? Right!! ..
I always wanted to prepare pizza at home...Well I did try at home and turned out a wonderful Chicken Tikka Pizza :)...My house was filled with aroma of baked cheese and bread :)

I have been eating pizza in different eat outs and somehow didn't like the sauce they put on it. Sometimes the sauce was too sour and sometimes it overpowered the toppings and the taste of toppings was lost in that sauce.
I did try some pizza sauce at home too and turned out an awesome one and its a keeper!!
Did some changes as per my choice of basic pizza sauce recipe of WikiHow.
Also prepared a pizza base....basically wanted to make a pizza from scratch!! What to say...I did it!! :)

This was so good...I made a medium sized pizza but regretted that I should have doubled the quantity and made large size or two medium ones :( anyways I shall prepare few more Pizza recipes for you.

You can check my recipe of Pizza Dough and Pizza Sauce. It basically remains same across all my pizza preparations but I change the recipe of different toppings I use.

This one's Chicken Tikka Pizza...try it!!




Ingredients (to make 1 Medium Pizza):
  • Pizza Dough
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Toppings of your choice (I used vertically sliced Green Capsicum, Cubed Onion)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella  Cheese

For Chicken Tikka:
  • 250 gms Chicken,boneless and skinless,bite size pieces
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 Tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 Tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Garam Masala Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
  • 2 Tbsp Lime juice
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Cloves and Cardamom Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Powder
  • 1 Tsp Hung Curd



Method:

  • In a bowl, marinate chicken pieces with all the spices mentioned for about 1 hr.


  • Meanwhile, on a flat surface spread the pizza dough to form pizza base. Make it form like a disc.
  • Make sure you spread the pizza dough evenly, do not leave the center dough too thin or it will be difficult to hold the pizza along with toppings when cooked.
  • Fold the edges of pizza to form like a rim.
  • Spread the pizza sauce on the pizza base.


  • Now spread the topping on it. I spread the capsicum first, followed by onions and then marinated chicken pieces and finally topped with cheese and little more sauce.



  • Preheat oven at 400 Degrees F for 10 mins and bake the pizza for 25 mins. You can bake for more time or less depending on your pizza size.
  • Enjoy yummy hot pizza with chilled Coke!!! 



Tips:

  • You can increase or decrease the quantity of dough to make the  pizza as per your size choice.
  • You can choose any toppings of your choice and try varieties.




Enjoy Eating!!!
