    About this recipe: My mum always made pizza with chorizo growing up and I loved it. I have redone it and added more protein - chicken! I love homemade pizza.

    Serves: 8 

    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets - cut into small chunks
    • flour for dusting

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 5 cloves garlic, minced

    1. Preheat an oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Prepare a pizza tin with olive oil and flour.
    2. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook the chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
    3. Dust a flat working surface with flour. Roll the pizza dough out to the size of your pizza tin. Place dough on the prepared tin.
    4. Stir the passata, 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic, Italian herbs, salt and pepper together in a small bowl; spread evenly over the surface of the dough. Scatter, in order, the chicken, chorizo, red onion, chopped jalapenos and cheese over the passata mixture.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven on the middle rack until the cheese is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Switch the oven setting to grill and cook another 5 minutes.
