  • 1 capsicum, sliced
  • 1 tomato, seeds removed & sliced
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded, as required
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded, as required
  • 1 tsp.  dry oregano
  • 1 tsp.  crushed red chillies 

Method :

Pizza Sauce :
  • Blend tomato & onion in a blender.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add garlic paste & fry for 1 minute.
  • Add blended tomato mixture & all the remaining ingredients.
  • Cook on medium heat until sauce is thick. Keep aside & let it cool.
Chicken :
  • Combine all ingredients of chicken tikka except oil and marinate for 20 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add the marinated chicken & cook until chicken is done.
  • Separately heat a piece of coal until red hot. Place it in a bowl inside the pan. 
  • Pour few drops of oil over coal and immediately cover the pan. Open after few minutes.
  • Remove from pan, cool & cut into chunks.
Pizza Dough :
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix ( 2 1/4 cup ) all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar and salt.
  • Combine warm water, egg and oil in a small bowl.
  • Add this in the flour mixture and beat with an electric mixer on High for 3 minutes.
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic ( 3 to 5 minutes ).
  • Shape dough into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease dough surface.
  • Cover bowl and let the dough rise in a warm place until double in size ( 50 to 60 minutes ).
  • Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut dough into three equal portions. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Pat each potion of dough into a disk.
Assemble & bake :
  • Preheat oven to 220 C. Prepare three ( 9 inch ) pizza pans by greasing with oil, set aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough portion out to 9 inch circle. Transfer dough circles to prepared pans.
  • Build up edges slightly. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.
  • Prick dough all over with a fork. Spoon 1/3 of the tomato sauce on each pizza crust and spread to within 1" of edge.
  • Sprinkle little shredded mozzarella cheese on sauce. Place chicken chunks, sliced onion, tomato & capsicum.
  • Sprinkle with cheddar &  mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle dry oregano & little crushed red chillies.
  • Bake each pizza for 16 - 18 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Notes :
  • I used about 227 gm.  pack of each cheese.
  • The chicken was plenty for the recipe, so you can freeze the leftover chicken to use later.
