Well there is a story about how I came up with the idea for this Chicken Curry Pizza. so I am about to tell.
One of the things on my shopping this week was a cheap pizza. They are total junk if you eat them as bought but they make a great base for something better. For costing then I think a 30cm/12in cheese and tomato pizza for 60p (about $1 for the US) is a pretty good deal.
Problem is it is pretty bland if just cooked from the pack. No problem as you will see from the recipe. A Chicken Curry Pizza may be a little unusual but avoid knocking it until you have tried it at home because it tastes great.
Now this really came about because the pizza was too big to fit into the freezer. Then there was some curry sauce left over from another day. It was time to experiment and combine the two into something tasty. Then there was some sliced chicken available so time to experiment with them all.
The result was this Chicken Curry Pizza and I think the end result was a great, if somewhat unusual, meal.
An interesting way to take a cheap Cheese and Tomato Pizza from the supermarket and turn it into a much tastier Chicken Curry Pizza.
Great thing is that it takes something that they sell very cheap then a few minutes gets a pizza that they would try to sell for 5 times the price.
Try it out because I did and it tasted rather good.
- 30cm/12in Cheese and Tomato Pizza
- Sliced Peppers
- Sliced Mushrooms
- Sliced Chicken
- 2-3 Tbsp Curry Sauce
- Set the oven to heat to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6
- Take the pizza from its packaging and put onto an ovenproof tray.
- Cut the chicken into smallish pieces then add on top of the pizza.
- Add on the mushrooms and the peppers. For this particular recipe, I used them from frozen so no preparation was needed.
- Spoon the curry sauce into the middle of the pizza.
- Put into the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes. Lower time will work most of the time. Just check at 20 mins and cook for a little longer if needed.
- The final result works great for either 1 or 2. Essentially it can just go on the plate for 1 and then be eaten. For 2 then halve the pizza and put each piece onto a plate. Then add on something like Confetti Coleslaw or Red Coleslaw to go alongside. Any other salad will work too.
This works out very well even if it does seem a little unusual. The exact taste is going to vary quite a bit depending on exactly what you use for the curry sauce though. That one is your call because you can go for a mild, medium or hot.
