This chicken Pizza is too delicious to resist with one slice 😉

There are many types of pizzas available in the market and the difference comes from the choice of toppings.

Today I showed the spicy chicken pizza topped with spicy chicken chunks, capsicums and onions. This is one regular non-veg pizza in my home and for the veg option, I usually make paneer pizza.

Before I bought my microwave oven, I used to do pan pizzas on a stove top. My kids are very fond of pizzas and I prefer allowing them to eat homemade pizza once in two months.

As homemade is always healthy and safe, it is better to bake pizzas at home. Moreover, making a complete homemade pizza is not that difficult according to me. All you need is to have pizza toppings/oregano, cheese and active yeast in your storage.

Yes, this is a complete homemade pizza and everything is purely homemade including pizza base, pizza sauce except oregano leaves, cheese & yeast.

Of course, you can use ready-made store-bought pizza base and pizza sauce if you like to fix a quick pizza.

Alternative ingredients:

If you don’t have oregano leaves just use red chilli flakes(dry grind 4 red chillies coarsely)

For those who don’t have pizza sauce, they can always use ketchup as a spread and will get mildly altered taste.

Also, use olives/mushroom/paneer cubes for veg toppings.

Finally, mozzarella cheese is the best choice for making pizzas and there is no alternative for this cheese ingredient.

Recipe Notes

Tips: 1) For making veg pizza, just replace the chicken pieces with paneer/mushroom and follow the same recipe. 2) To get a properly doubled dough, use dry yeast which is newly bought & active. If the water does not get a foamy mix in a few minutes means the yeast is not working. 3) Furthermore, if you are concerned about using yeast, still you can do pizza without doubling the dough. But the pizza would be like a flatbread without compromising the taste. 4) Also, if you are using a readymade pizza base, reduce the baking time to 5 mins until cheese melts. And for stovetop time it would be 8 mins. 5) Finally, the toppings are purely our choice like capsicum, onions, olives, peppers, baby corn and mushrooms. Use whatever you like, but do not crowd the pizza with toppings as it is difficult to bake.
