Whole Meal Flour Pizza with Grilled Chicken

I try my best to avoid disappointing my Veggie readers by not posting any meat recipes.  (But, egg is an exemption. Because,  Eggs are one of the basic ingredients in Baking, can’t avoid. However, I have given egg alternatives in the Tips & Tricks page)

But today, I am posting first meat recipe. I can see the smile, in my non-veg reader’s face. 

It’s a revised (non veg) version of my earlier Pizza recipe. The veggies can still read this and Substitute Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) for Chicken.  (Both Paneer and Chicken are Rich in Protein) 

Usually, Pizza is made with 100% All purpose flour. Here, we are going for a healthier version.

Ingredients for Pizza base : 2 1/2cup of Whole meal flour   ;    1/2 cup of All-purpose flour  ;   1 ½ cups of  Water    ;    ½ tsp  Sugar  ;       1 ½ tsp  Salt   ;     1 ½ tsp Yeast  ;  1  Egg     ;       1 tbsp  Olive oil    ;  1/4 cup  Pizza sauce.

Ingredients are required for Topping : Onion, sliced 1 medium  ;   half grilled chicken (grilled paneer for Veggies)   ;   Tomatoes cut into thick strips 1medium    ;    Green capsicum cut into thick strips 1 medium    ;   ¾ cup of   Low fat Mozzarella cheese, grated   ;    1 tsp Olive oil    ;    ¼ tsp of  Dry oregano    ;  1tsp  Chili flakes.  

Ingredients are required for Grill chicken :  Chicken Breast   ;   Tandoor masala  ;  2 tsp of Oil   ;   2 tsp of  Curd (Yogurt)    ;      Salt to taste

Grill Chicken Procedure :  Mix Tandoor masala, oil, yogurt, salt well and Marinate the chicken breast for about an hour. (if require sprinkle little water)

Grill the Chicken in Oven till it done. Allow it to cool and chop in to chunks. 

Making procedure of Pizza Base : Mix yeast and sugar with Luke warm water and set aside until it become frothy.  Thanks to the process fermentation 

Add salt, olive oil, egg, meal flour and all-purpose flour to the yeast mixture and kneads into soft dough. 

Leave the dough covered with a damp cloth in a warm place until dough is about double in volume.  It may take about forty five minutes, depends on the atmosphere temperature. Our friends yeast and bacteria, acts much faster in tropical conditions (around 100°F or 38°C).

Divide the (pizza) dough into two equal half, roll out each portion into medium thick discs. Prick with a fork all over. (If you don’t prick, Pizza base raises like a bun while you bake. Resulting, the toppings to fall)

Preheat oven to 220°C... …….Meanwhile, let’s prepare the topping. 

Spread prepared pizza sauce on rolled pizza base, top it with sliced Onion, grilled Chicken chunks, Tomato, Sliced Olives and Capsicum strips. Finally sprinkle grated low-fat mozzarella cheese to evenly cover the pizza top. 

Sprinkle chili flakes on top with olive oil. Place it on greased ovenproof tray and bake in the preheated oven at 220°C until the pizza base is crisp and the cheese melts and starts bubbling.  (May take about twenty minutes) Remove from oven, sprinkle with dried Oregano and serve hot with preferred sauce.
