Yoghurt-Marinated Chicken Pizza

Yoghurt-Marinated Chicken Pizza

Tender spiced free-range chicken pulled apart and lathered all over a pizza base. Yes, we did.

  • Roughly chop up some chicken breast into cubes and put in a bowl with some yoghurt, salt and pepper, paprika, cumin, coriander seeds, turmeric and cinnamon - quantities to taste. Stir to coat, and set aside to marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to 12 hours. Once done par cook the chicken by frying or grilling it for 5-10 minutes until nearly cooked through.

  • Heat your oven to maximum (really turn up the heat). Those wood-fired pizza ovens are even hotter, so don’t be scared. Make sure your oven tray is in the centre of the oven heating up. 

  • Thinly spread or brush the pizza base with some tomato pizza sauce, leaving a bit of space around the edges. 

  • Evenly sprinkle some fresh and finely chopped herbs of your choice (oregano/thyme/rosemary would be great here but optional), and, most importantly, cheese! We always recommend a heavy hand when adding the grated mozzarella cheese. Scatter over the par cooked chicken. 

  • Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes, but make sure you keep an eye on it so that it's cooked perfectly – cheese lightly melted and bubbling and the edges are golden.

  • Serve hot, topped with thin slices of fresh tomato, and sprinkled with some fresh rocket.


Replace the chicken with any alternatives such as; beef, fish or lamb.
