BBQ Chicken Pan Pizza

There comes a time when he has a yen for the classic yet traditional dish, providing the platform for home made eatables, the limited addition of cheese and extra filled veggies is what makes this chicken pizza extra special and worthy for him. I love the crusty bottoms coated with the yummy BBQ chicken and ambrosial veggies wrapped with the whole spices and Italian herbs. Regular fluffy flour crust sounds not-so-easy option for the one’s trying to make pizza for the very first time, why not to buy the frozen ones, especially when you’re throwing a pizza party or treat, but with a mellower richness, as it is made with the instantly charmed, mild and warm varieties of goodness.

Adding veggies and proteins into your junk to make any dish count as healthy without fraught affair, fresh tomatoes seethe to form a deep sauce topped with chicken sautéed in yogurt, bell peppers, onions and glazed cheese, so easy and finger licking nutrition. This marinated chicken is sharp, juicy, tender with smoky flavor that will give you the satisfaction of intensifying flavors. I have used my regular tandoori spice powder recipe, click here for the recipe, make this spice for one time and use it in series of rice, curry or BBQ recipes and feel that yummy transformation in your dish, you will love it! I had never tired pan-pizza ever but on tons of Facebook fans request here I am with a quick and unbelievably amazing pizza recipe.

BBQ Chicken Pan Pizza

Preparation Time: 35 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes
Serves: 2 persons

1 large pizza crust
1 cup boneless chicken strips
1 cup pizza sauce (check out it’s recipe here)
1 tablespoon tandoori spice powder (check out it’s recipe here)
1 tablespoon greek yogurt
½ teaspoon garlic paste
½ teaspoon ginger paste
1 cup moon sliced onions
1 cup thin sliced capsicum, any color of your choice
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1 tablespoon oregano
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
A small piece of charcoal for smoke

  • In a bowl, add chicken strips, 1 tablespoon yogurt, 1-2 tablespoon tandoori spice powder, ½ teaspoon ginger paste and ½ teaspoon garlic paste, mix well and marinate for half an hour.
  • Later, heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil and add the marinated chicken strips mixture and allow it to cook for 8-10 minutes on a medium heat. As soon as the chicken becomes tender and the sauce dries up, place a piece of hot charcoal into the pan and cover it, this will give an unbeatable flavor to your chicken. 
  • In another pan, drizzle cooking oil spreading all over and gently place the pizza crust, allow it to turn crisp on a low flame for about 8 minutes, check occasionally.  You will find the base of the crust has turned crisp and light brown, time to transfer the crust to a plate.
  • Again, repeat the process by drizzling the cooking oil in a nonstick pan, transfer the other side of uncooked crust on the pan, keeping the flame on a low heat. Immediately spread pizza sauce all over the crisp side of the crust, spread tandoori chicken strips, sliced capsicum, onions and shredded cheese. You can add unseeded tomatoes, black olives, jalapenos, corns and even mushrooms if you are looking for a heavy topping on your pizza. Add cheese as per your likings and diet plan! We prefer to add minimum amount fulfilling our cheese cravings!
  • Finish by sprinkling chili flakes and oregano as per your likings, allow the pizza base to cook on a low heat for 10 minutes until the base becomes crispy. Remove it to a plate and gently give cuts with the help of pizza cutter. Enjoy this yummy Italian meal with your bff!
