A well-cooked Chicken Pizza sometimes remains a delicacy achievable only at restaurants and Pizza eateries. Since making the pizza base is not a child's play and needs a lot of attention and diligence, we best leave it on the market-made pizzas. And what about using readymade pizza bases to make one? They are reliable to turn an insipid base into a pizza with a compelling taste. Just a little bit of guidance, smart layering and application of the right toppings and sauces, and proper baking time can make it a successful pizza. Chicken Pizza uses boneless chicken pieces marinated in a fulfilling spicy masala mix and fried to get nice juicy chicken toppings.

Some Pizza Dough 

The pizza dough and base are undoubtedly the most difficult parts of making pizza as it requires careful handling of the loose dough. So what are the essential ingredients of pizza dough?  It's made of five basic ingredients namely flour, salt, yeast, oil, and water that are mixed and loosely kneaded. Fermentation is the most important part of these pizzas, which are fermented for 7-8 hours altogether, once after kneading the dough and then after making small balls of the dough. The process helps in raising the dough, making it airy and soft and spongy. 

Today there are also Instant pizza bases commonly sold commercially. These do not contain yeast, and so are not as light and airy as a pizza base made from leavened pizza dough. However, they have great flavour and make a good thin and crispy base which tastes great with sauce layers and various veg and non-veg toppings
