Ingredients

 

✓  2 tbsp. Coconut Oil

✓  18 oz chicken breast (cut into strips)

✓  2 tsp. garlic (finely chopped)

✓  2 tsp. paprika

✓  2 tsp. cayenne pepper

✓  3 tbsp. hot pepper sauce

✓  ½ white onion (sliced)

✓  ½ red pepper (sliced)

 ✓ ½ green pepper (sliced)

✓  7 oz low-fat cheese (grated)

✓  1 ball wholemeal pizza dough

✓ 1 egg (beaten)

Method

 

#1 Preheat oven to 400°F or 350°F for fan-assisted

#2 Melt the coconut oil in a large pan on a medium heat, then add the chicken, onion and peppers and fry for 8-10 minutes until cooked through

#3 Add the garlic and paprika to the pan and cook for a further 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, then transfer the mixture to a bowl. Stir through the hot pepper sauce and set aside

#4 Roll the pizza dough out on greaseproof paper to around half a centimeter thickness then cut 4 lines in a star shape in the center of the circle

#5 Add the chicken, onion and pepper mixture to the space between the star shape and the outside of the pizza dough, then generously sprinkle cheese ontop

#6 Next, pull each corner of the star shape and fold it over the outer edge of the crust, pulling the outer edge inwards a little to secure it, then brush the beaten egg over the top

#7 Bake for approximately 20 minutes, then remove from oven and serve with a bowl of fresh soured cream in the centre. Divide and demolish!
