You’ll also need to make chicken tikka separately. While chicken tikka is cooking, make pizza base, and roll it out into a circle. Make sure you have a thick outer edge, and prick holes on the base using a fork except the edges. This will prevent the base from puffing up, and the center of the base remains thin and crispy.
When chicken tikka comes out of the oven, you can top the pizza with pizza sauce, mozzarella, fresh or dried rosemary (or oregano), cooked chicken, bell peppers (capsicum), and olives. If you want to add a little heat to this pizza recipe, sprinkle with red chili flakes.
