Chilli Chicken Pizza

Back in India we used to get all kinds of variety pizza with Indian flavors. Here the choices are much more limited. So i was glad to find this recipe for chilli chicken pizza. The base is very easy to put together. i have used this base with various toppings. There is no yeast needed for the dough and it comes together in 5 minutes. Ritu loves helping me out by putting cheese on the top of pizza. :) And she will go on and on until i force her to stop.


Two Ingredient Pizza Dough

Recipe from Ria’sCollection

1 1/2 to 2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup Greek Yogurt OR 1 almost overflowing cup of regular yogurt, hung in a cheese cloth for 20 mins.

In a medium bowl, mix together the two ingredients and form smooth, soft and non-sticky dough. You may use more flour depending on how the dough is coming together.

Chilli chicken
Recipe from Ria’sCollection


Boneless chicken/Chicken breast -100 g cut into 1/2" pieces
Red chilli paste or red chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
Soya sauce- 1 tbsp
Salt & pepper to taste
Cornflour-2 tsp
Oil for frying

Marinate the chicken pieces with everything except cornflour and leave aside for 30 mins.
Drain the excess marinade, add cornflour and mix well.
Fry the pieces in oil.
Mix with 1 tbsp of the sauce to keep the chicken succulent.


Dust the pizza baking dish liberally with semolina. Roll out the pizza dough to form the base, top it up with pizza sauce, the prepared chilli chicken and shredded mozzarella cheese and bake the pizza for 12 minutes at 500 F. 

The pizza came out well and we loved it. Home made pizza is much lighter compared to the store ones.( that is if you cut down on the cheese on top :P)
