Spicy Mango Chicken Ranch Pizza

Inspired by the Chicken Ranch Pizza over at Annie's Eats, this was one of those 'as you go' type recipes. The only thing I followed exactly was the pizza dough recipe.

Pizza dough
200ml warm water
1 Tbsp garlic olive oil
1 tsp salt (I used 3/4 table salt, and 1/4 garlic salt)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup wholemeal bread mix (I ran out of flour!)
8g yeast

Place in bread maker on 'Dough' cycle.

Spicy Mango Chicken Ranch Pizza
1 quantity pizza dough
Ranch dressing
grated mozzarella
400g Spicy Mango Chicken Steak, fried and chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 tomato, seeded and diced
2 spring onions, chopped
130g fire roasted capsicum strips
grated tasty cheese

Split dough in half, and roll out into a thin oblong. (If you have a round pizza tray or stone, by all means make round pizzas. I only have regular oblong baking trays, so I make oblong pizzas) Place on baking paper lined trays, or however you normally cook your pizzas.

Spread the bases with ranch dressing. Annie used 1/4 cup, but I was too lazy to measure it. Give yourself enough to make a nice even coverage, but don't drown it. Sprinkle each pizza with a light handful of mozzarella.

Top the pizzas with tomato, spring onions, chicken and capsicum. Then take another light handful of tasty cheese and sprinkle over the top. It's really important not to overdo it with the cheese, like I did, or the pizza will be greasy and goopy. Goopy with cheese is nice, but not this time.

Bake at 200°C for 10-15 minutes.

Serve with Blue Heaven Spiders, just because you can. :)
