roast chicken pizza

I’m a huge fan of pizza as I’ve said before. It’s a great way of using up leftovers, which is exactly what the one above is – *leftovers pizza*

what you need:


  • 400g bread flour
  • 3/4 tsp dried yeast
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • good fat pinch of salt
  • approx. 200ml of tepid water

– tomato sauce base

– the topping

  • leftover roast chicken
  • chargrilled peppers from a jar
  • 250g mozzarella
  • dried oregano
  • pea shoots

what to do:

  • put the flour, yeast, salt, olive oil into a large bowl and tip in the water drop at a time to mix the ingredients by hand into a stiff dough – turn the dough onto a work surface and knead for 5 minutes.
  • transfer back into the bowl and cover in cling film put the bowl into a warm place and leave for around an hour.

to assemble…

  • tip out your dough onto a work surface and split into two equal portions
  • roll the dough out thinly to the shape of your baking tray
  • transfer to a baking tray
  • top with the sauce, peppers and torn strips of mozzarella, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with oregano
  • bake until the cheese in golden and the bread risen
  • once out of the oven – top with shredded roast chicken and sprinkle with pea shoots

to serve:

This is nice with potato wedges and a rather tasty little dish of coleslaw

Of course as this is leftovers pizza just use whatever you have – roast beef & rocket, roast pork & chinese leaves….

Perfect Monday lunch or dinner.
