    Method
    Prep:40min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Extra time:1hr  ›  Ready in:2hr5min 

    1. To make the bread base: Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Into the well add the water, yeast, sugar, salt. Incorporate the flour into the water.
    2. When all the water has been mixed into the flour, place on a floured board and kneed well for approx 10 minutes.
    3. Cover the dough with a light dusting of flour, place in a bowl, cover with a clean cloth and leave in a warm place for approx 30 minutes - until doubled in size
    4. Meanwhile, make the marinade: Mix together all the marinade ingredients, add the chicken and place in the fridge until required
    5. After the dough has risen, knock out the air by kneeding once more. Dust a baking tray with flour & press the dough into the tray. (It doesn't matter if it tears or looks a little 'rough')
    6. Re cover the dough with the clean tea towel and leave to rise once more. (Approx 30 minutes)
    7. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Empty the contents of the tinned tomatoes into a saucepan and heat gently
    8. Add to the tinned tomatoes the onion & garlic and simmer gently until reduced & quite thick. Season well with salt & Freshly ground black pepper & add the fresh Oregano
    9. Remove from heat and add a good glug of Olive Oil (3-4 Tablespoons approx). Stir well
    10. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees C
    11. Once the dough has risen sufficiently, gently cover with the thick tomato sauce (without knocking the air out of the dough)
    12. Add the marinated chicken, halved olives & finally the grated cheese
    13. Put into the oven, set the timer for 25 minutes, pour a glass of wine & relax until ready! - or be really efficient and make salad!

    Freezing tip

    Don't overdo the tomato sauce, otherwise the pizza may go soggy. If you have too much sauce (as I normally do with a whole tin of tomatoes) freeze 1/2 of it. It can then be used either for another pizza or as a base for a pasta dish.

    Substitution

    Use any leftover meat you may have available

    Tip

    It seems like a very long ingredient list, but most items are store cupboard basics. If you don't generally keep the reggae reggae sauce in (but if you've never tried it I strongly recommend that you do!!) you can add either some tabasco or chilli powder to the marinade
