- 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.
- When all the water has been mixed into the flour, place on a floured board and kneed well for approx 10 minutes.
- 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
- Meanwhile, make the marinade:
Mix together all the marinade ingredients, add the chicken and place in the fridge until required
- 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')
- Re cover the dough with the clean tea towel and leave to rise once more. (Approx 30 minutes)
- Meanwhile, make the sauce:
Empty the contents of the tinned tomatoes into a saucepan and heat gently
- 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
- Remove from heat and add a good glug of Olive Oil (3-4 Tablespoons approx). Stir well
- Pre heat oven to 180 degrees C
- Once the dough has risen sufficiently, gently cover with the thick tomato sauce (without knocking the air out of the dough)
- Add the marinated chicken, halved olives & finally the grated cheese
- 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!
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.
Use any leftover meat you may have available
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
