This pizza has sliced chicken breast, mozzarella cheese, and a few other complementary toppings, liberally laced with peri peri sauce. This pizza is perfect for those who like it spicy.


Peri Peri Chicken Pizza
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 1 Medium pizza
  1. Set oven to preheat at 240°C
  2. Place pizza base onto a flat surface (an oven tray is perfect if you dont have a pizza peel) and spread with the pizza sauce.
  3. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.
  4. Arrange the cooked chicken, cherry tomatoes, spinach leaves and red onion slices over the pizza
  5. Drizzle the peri peri sauce over the pizza in a zig-zag motion.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes, or until the base is crisp and the cheese has melted.
  7. Remove the pizza from oven, slice, and serve
Make sure to knead the dough properly ; 20 minutes hand kneading, 15 minutes with a hand mixer, or 10 minutes for a stand mixer.

You need to have a very hot preheated oven (preheat for about 15 minutes)
Make sure you keep the pizza pan or pizza stone inside the oven while it is pre-heating so it is also hot

Spray a little water inside the oven to get rid of the dry air (this is an important part of getting the crust just right)

For a peri peri chicken pizza a bit closer to the Nandos flavour you can substitute the spinach leaves with fresh coriander (cilantro) and add drained crushed pineapple.

A common addition to this pizza is sliced red capsicum (bell pepper)
