Servings 2 pizzas
- 250 g Strong White Bread Flour
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 7g sachet Fast Action Yeast
- 1 tsp Golden Caster Sugar
- 170 ml Warm Water
- 3 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Onion chopped
- 3 Cloves Garlic crushed
- 1 400g tin Chopped Tomatoes
- 3 tbsp Tomato Puree
- 2 tbsp Chipotle Paste
For the Toppings
- 100 g Cooked Chicken shredded
- 1 Yellow Pepper sliced
- 1 small Red Onion sliced
- 150 g Mozzarella cut into strips (for stuffed crust)
- 100 g Mozzarella sliced (for topping)
Make the dough. Mix the flour, yeast and salt together in a large bowl. Mix together the sugar and warm water then make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour the sugar and water into the well. Gradually mix the wet and dry ingredients together and then turn out onto a floured work surface. Knead for 10 minutes. Flour the outside of the ball of dough then place in an oiled bowl. At this stage you can either prove for about 15 minutes somewhere warm or put it into the fridge until you're ready to use.
Preheat the oven to 200° C. Make the sauce. Heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, plenty of salt and 40ml of water. Once the water has evaporated pour in the tin of tomatoes and cook down until it's almost dry. Mix in the tomato puree and chipotle paste and leave to cook a little more until it has a thick consistency. Tip out onto a plate and allow to cool.
Split the dough in half and roll each ball of dough out into a circle. Place on trays and spread the strips of mozzarella around the outer edge of the pizza making sure to leave a little gap at the edge. Carefully fold the dough over the cheese and tuck in tightly pressing to seal. Repeat with the second pizza.
Spread the sauce around the middle of each pizza and split all the toppings between the two pizzas. Bake for 15 minutes until all the cheese is melted.
