BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ingredients

For the base

250g wholemeal flour
1 tsp instant yeast
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp rapeseed oil, plus extra for greasing

For the Topping

Pack of three peppers
1 large onion
1tbsp rapeseed oil
2 tbsp barbecue sauce
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 large skinless chicken breast fillet, diced
175g baby plum tomatoes, quartered
50g Applewood smoked cheese, grated

Method

1. Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Tip the flour into a mixer with a bowl. Add the yeast, salt, oil and 200ml warm water then mix well to a very soft dough. Knead in the food mixer for about 5 mins, but if making this by hand, tip onto a work surface and knead for about 10 mins. The dough is sticky, but try not to add too much extra flour. Leave in the bowl and cover with a tea towel while you halve and slice the peppers and onions. There is no need to prove the dough for a specific time, just let it sit while you make the topping.

2. For the topping: toss the peppers and onions with the oil and then roast for 15 mins. In the meantime mix the barbecue sauce and tomato purée with 5 tbsp water.

3. Take the dough from the bowl and press into the base and up the sides of an oiled 25x35cm Swiss roll tin. Don’t knead the dough first otherwise it will be too elastic and will keep shrinking back. Spread with two thirds of the barbecue sauce mix then add the remainder to the chicken and toss well to coat it.

4. Take the roasted pepper mixture from the oven and spread on top of the pizza. Scatter over the tomatoes then evenly spoon on the barbecue chicken. Scatter with the cheese and bake for 15 mins. Serve with a salad or healthy coleslaw.
