Tandoori Chicken Pizza

YIELD: 1 pizza




  • Tomato yogurt curry:
  • heat garlic in olive oil over medium heat till translucent, 1-2 minutes.
  • add next 7 ingredients (through yogurt).
  • reduce heat and boil the mixture till all excess liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  • turn off burner and quickly blend in cilantro and butter; set aside.
  • Tandoori chicken:
  • combine first 5 ingredients (through yogurt).
  • coat the chicken breast with the resulting mixture (plastic gloves will keep your hands from turning red).
  • pour the butter over the marinating chicken breasts and stir to coat well.
  • prepare hot grill; grill the chicken for 5-7 minutes per side (discard marinade).
  • remove from the grill and chill.
  • slice chilled chicken into 1/8 inch thick slices and set aside in refrigerator.
  • To make pizza:
  • preheat oven to 425.
  • prepare pizza dough.
  • use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup tomato yogurt curry evenly over the surface of the prepared pizza dough within the rim.
  • place slices of yellow squash and zucchini over the sauce; do not overlap.
  • cover the sauced area with the mozzarella and distribute the sliced tandoori chicken evenly over the cheese (or you can put the chicken on first and top with the cheese - whichever you prefer).
  • transfer the pizza to the oven; bake till crust is crisp and golden and the cheese is bubbly at the center, about 10-15 minutes.
  • carefully remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle 1 T chopped fresh cilantro over the top.
  • Slice and serve with mango chutney.
