DIRECTIONS

  • Cook chicken breast in oven for 30 minutes at 180°C / 350°F or grill until cooked through. You can of course use leftover chicken.
  • Melt butter over gentle heat in a small saucepan and stir in flour until mixed well.
  • Stir in milk gradually and continue to stir until it has reduced just a little, not much just a minute or two.
  • Reduce temperature to low and stir through cheese until it has just melted and remove from the heat.
  • Stir through the pineapple juice and stir rapidly to get it back to a thinner consistency.
  • Coarsely cut the chicken into cubes roughly 1cm (little under 1/2") across and add to the cheese sauce and mix through.
  • Stir through pineapple, onion, garlic, parsley, chives and sage. Place in the refrigerator 30 minutes while you prepare the oven/grill or alternatively it can be done in advance.
  • Spread the base with the tomato paste or your favourite pizza sauce and then evenly spread the chicken mixture over the top.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella over the top and cook as per your preferences until the cheese is melted through etc.
