Wholemeal pizza base topped with chicken and chorizo

Pizza base

Use a bread maker if you wish ( I did, it takes 90 mins)
200mls cold water
2 and 1/2 cups of flour – I used wholemeal
2 tablespoons of oil ( your choice of oil)
Salt (I leave it out)
1 and 3/4 teaspoons of dry yeast
Mix, knead, rise, knead, roll out.

Pizza toppings

  • 2 large red onions, cut (long ways), softened and caramelised in a hot pan. Use a little oil, deglaze the pan with a splash of white wine (if you like) – set aside.
  • 1/2 chicken breast skinless, cut into small strips, marinate in a combo of 2/3 sweet chilli sauce/jam and 1/3 soy sauce (about a cup full in total) for 30 minutes.
  • Then toss the chicken in a pan until the sauce has caramelised (it goes kind of sticky). Then set aside.
  • Slice a chorizo sausage, about 4 inches long – very thinly
  • Sweet corn, cooked and cut off the cob – 2 cobs are plenty
  • 125gms grated Edam cheese (less fat) – this binds the toppings together nicely.

Smear onto the pizza base

  • tomato paste or puree – about 3 tablespoons
  • crushed garlic – about 3 teaspoons
  • sprinkle corn
  • sprinkle 3/4 of the grated cheese
  • spread onions over
  • place chicken and chorizo pieces evenly (I left chorizo off my 1/4 of the pizza)
  • top with a final sprinkle of grated cheese
Cook in 180C oven for about 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
