 Chicken fajitas… and pizza? Two of our favourite dishes have been married into one for this tasty high-protein, low-fat healthy pizza recipe!

And the bonus? It’s super easy to make.



Ingredients


✓ 2 tbsp. Coconut Oil

✓ 500g chicken breast (cut into strips)

✓ 2 tsp. garlic (finely chopped)

✓ 2 tsp. paprika

✓ 2 tsp. cayenne pepper

✓ 50ml hot pepper sauce

✓ ½ white onion (sliced)

✓ ½ red pepper (sliced)

✓ ½ green pepper (sliced)

✓ 200g Smoked Cheese (grated)

✓ 1 ball wholemeal pizza dough

✓ 1 egg (beaten)

✓ Low fat soured cream


Method


#1 Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C 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 centimetre thickness then cut 4 lines in a star shape in the centre 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 Smoked Cheese on top

#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!
