Preparation

  • In a bowl, marinate the chicken with all the ingredients in the Marinade list and keep it for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Now you can either grill the chicken or prepare it in pan and keep it aside.
  • Prepare the sauce by adding all the ingredients in the sauce list in a pan and simmer it on low heat until the sauce thickens.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 230°C. Place the prepared pizza dough on a pizza pan and brush lightly with olive oil.
  • Spread the sauce on the dough and arrange tikka chunks on the pizza. Top it with onions, chopped pepper, broccoli and pineapple chunks.
  • Spread half the cheese and place olives on top. (The remaining half of the cheese i like to add after the pizza is half way baked, but you can add full if you want to).
  • Place the pizza in a pre-heated oven for around 5-8 minutes then spread the rest of the cheese and place it back again for another 8-10 minutes.
