Makes :
2 pizzas

Preparation Time :
35 minutes

Cooking Time :
30 minutes

Preparation Method :

  • Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add the yeast and salt, making a small well in the top. Mix the water and oil together into the bowl and gradually combine to a sticky dough.
  • Lightly flour the work surface and knead the dough for about 10 - 12 minutes, until it is smooth and elastic.
  • Place the pizza bases on two baking trays, using a rolling pin to transfer them from the work surface.
  • Place the oil in a dish and add the chicken, spices, oregano and honey. Cover and leave in the refrigerator to marinate for 1-2 hours.
  • Knock back the dough by gently kneading for about a minute, then divide into two balls.
  • Flatten each ball, roll out on a lightly floured work surface, giving a quarter turn between each roll.
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C / 425°F / Gas Mark 7. Place the pizza bases on two baking trays.
  • Use a pastry brush to wet the edges, then fold over to seal the cheese inside the crust.
  • Place the marinated chicken on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until just cooked through.
  • Divide the pizza sauce between the two pizza bases, spreading almost to the edges.
  • Scatter over the chicken, onion, yellow pepper and cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melting and turning golden and the bases are crisp. Drizzle with the soured cream and serve immediately.
