Spicy Chicken Pizza

Ingredients for Pizza base
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup Maida flour

Ingredients for topping
1 cup shredded mozzarella
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 cup chopped chicken tenders
4 tsp chili flakes
4 tsp oregano
Salt to taste


In a large bowl, mix sugar in warm water. Add yeast and let stand for 15 minutes, until foamy. Now add olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture, then mix in wheat flour and Maida flour to make soft dough. Place dough in a bowl and cover loosely with a towel and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Roll a ball of dough with a rolling pin until it will not stretch any further. Then, drape it over both of your fists, and gently pull the edges outward, while rotating the crust. When the circle has reached the desired size, place on a well oiled pizza pan. Spread adequate amount of tomato sauce on the top of pizza base, place sliced onions and chicken, sprinkle chili flakes, oregano and salt. Cover the entire pizza with both the cheeses. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes (depending on thickness) in the preheated oven, until the crust is crisp and golden at the edges, and cheese is melted on the top
