Sophie Gray’s Trashy BBQ Chicken Pizza


First make the pizza dough:

2 C plain flour

1/2 sachet instant yeast (Edmonds)

1/2 t salt

1 t sugar

1/2 T oil

approx. 1 C warm water

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and oil. Add enough water to form a soft dough (I added about 1/2 the water, gave a stir, added a bit more, stirred a bit more; used all bar about 1/8 C of the water).

Turn onto a well floured board and knead for 5 minutes. The dough will become smooth and elastic. Put into a clean dry bowl, cover loosely with gladwrap and microwave for 1 minute on low. Stand for 10 minutes, and then zap again. Let stand until dough has doubled in size. Punch down (to remove some of the air), then turn it out onto a lightly floured board and roll out to the desired size (about 34cm diameter).

Spread with 2/3 C Primo Pizza Sauce, and top with toppings. Bake at 200degrees (preheat at 220) for about 15 minutes.

While the dough is standing between microwave zaps make the Primo Pizza Sauce


Primo Pizza Sauce

1 onion finely diced

2 t Minced garlic

400 gm tin of chopped tomatoes

1 t sugar

1/2 t salt

2 T tomato paste

pinch of salt

In a medium sized pot, heat a splash of oil, and then add a diced onion and 2 heaped t of minced garlic. Cook until onion is translucent. Add a tin of chopped tomatoes, sugar, salt, and tomato paste. Let simmer for 10 – 15 minutes, and mash with a fork if you want a more smooth sauce.


Ok, the main event:

the Pizza!

1 small boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced into thin slices

1/2 C store bought BBQ sauce (I used Homebrand)

2/3 C Primo Pizza Sauce

1/2 red capsicum, diced

1 C grated cheese.

Prepare the baking tray by laying one sheet of baking paper lengthwise and one cross wise. Preheat the oven to 220degrees and place a clean oven tray in the oven to heat. Put the pizza base on the prepared tray. Combine the chicken with half of the bbq sauce. Add the rest of the bbq sauce to the Pizza Sauce. Spread the Pizza Sauce on the pizza base. Top with the chicken slices, diced capsicum, and the grated cheese. Carefully transport the pizza and tray to the oven, and slice the pizza (baking paper and all) onto the heated oven tray. Let bake for 2 – 3 minutes, then carefully slide the baking paper out from under the pizza, and let the pizza cook for a further 10 – 15 minutes until the bottom of the base is golden. The pizza base dough make enough for a family-sized baking tray sized pizza, or one that is half that size and one for a garlic bread (I rolled it out to fit my sponge roll tin, and baked it without a topping, then spread with garlic butter when it was baked). This is FILLING!! And DELICIOUS!!
