Mix the pizza base ingredients together with enough warm water to make a dough. Leave it to rise for as long as you can, the longer you can leave it, the more it improves the flavour. Maybe mix it up in the morning and leave it all day, or at any rate, leave it until risen.
250 g flour, 140 ml warm water, 0.5 tsp salt, 1.5 tsps yeast
You can use the sauce as it is, or simmer it until it is thicker. Then whizz if you want it smooth. Leave to cool if you have time.
Slice and chop all the topping ingredients and mix together.
100 g onion, 100 g red pepper, 117 g chicken
Grate the cheddar and chop the mozzarella and mix together
40 g cheddar cheese, 125 g mozarella
When you are ready, bash the dough back and spread out onto a baking tray and leave to bounce back a little for about 10 minutes or so.
Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the base
Top with the remaining topping ingredients, except the stuffing balls, putting all the cheese on the top.
Dot the stuffing balls around if using
3 stuffing balls
Finally, drizzle with the olive oil around the crust edges so that they bake crispy
1 tblsp olive oil
Bake in a hot oven - Gas 7 / 425°F / 220 °C / 200 °C - for about 25 minutes until golden and crispy round the edges
While it is cooking, if you are having salad with it, prepare all the salad ingredients, and serve while the pizza is hot.
Priced at Aldi July 2022Serve with a bit of salad if you like. Shredded iceberg lettuce, chopped cucumber, thinly sliced radish for instance This was yummy, I could taste both the chicken and the stuffing, even though there wasn’t much of it. I shall do this one again!
