Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ingredients:

Pizza dough:

1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

1 ½ tsp honey

½ tsp salt

1 ½ tsp canola oil

1 ½ tsp instant dried yeast

½ cup water

Toppings:

½ cup diced skinless & boneless chicken breast

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp coarsely ground black pepper

2 slices streaky bacon (cut into strips)

3 tbsp BBQ sauce (divided)

½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (divided)

1 pc canned pineapple ring (cut into small pieces)

½ red onion (thinly sliced)

1 stalk cilantro (use leaves only)

Preparation Instructions:

  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the dough hook, mix the honey, salt, canola oil, instant dried yeast and water.
  2. Add the all-purpose flour gradually until a soft dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. Remove the dough from the mixer and knead it for couple of minutes. Transfer the dough into a bowl, cover and leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the toppings:
  • Marinate the diced chicken breast with ¼ tsp of salt and ¼ tsp of coarsely ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat up a saucepan on low heat. Add in bacon strips, cook until the fat is released and the meat is crisp and browned. Remove and set aside.
  • Use the bacon fat to cook the marinated chicken breast until no longer pink.
  • Add in 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce, stir to combine. Remove and set aside.
  1. Spray an 8-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. Shape and flatten dough out in a circle onto the pizza pan.
  2. Spread 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce evenly over dough. Top with ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, then top cheese with chicken, bacon, pineapple and red onion. Sprinkle remaining ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese over the top.
  3. Bake at 225C until crust is golden.
  4. Remove from the oven, top with cilantro leaves.
  5. Cut into slices and serve.
