Gourmet Pizza Recipes with Chicken
10 ½ oz plain flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup tandoori paste
4 whisked eggs
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ cups natural yogurt
1 lb chicken tenderloins, flattened and halved
1 cup Indian lime pickle or mango chutney
2 tablespoons semolina or cornmeal
1 thinly sliced green bell pepper
1 thinly sliced onion
Juice of ½ lemon
Coriander to garnish
½ bunch chopped fresh mint
½ teaspoon each cumin and turmeric
2 thin sliced green onions
Place flour in a bowl and make a well. Pour in the salt and eggs and mix with a fork. Work the dough with your hands and make a ball. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until it is elastic. Split the dough into two balls and set them aside to rest for 30 minutes.
Mix 1/3 of the yogurt and tandoori paste. Add the chicken. Marinate for an hour. Preheat the oven to 390 degrees F. Form a round with each dough ball and sprinkle some semolina on the pizza trays, then place the dough on each tray.
Mix the sliced onion, bell pepper and lime pickle in a bowl and spread this mixture on the pizza bases. Top each pizza with marinated chicken and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pizzas are crisp and golden.
Combine the mint, green onions, cumin, turmeric, lemon juice, and the rest of the yogurt. Drizzle this mixture over the hot pizzas and garnish with plenty of fresh coriander.
