Apricot Chicken Wholemeal Pizza



This is the Best.Pizza.Ever.
A 100% wholemeal base made without refined sugar! It is topped with homemade pizza sauce, free range chicken breast, cashew nut cheese, dried apricots, sunflower & pumpkin seeds, red onion, green capsicum, a little grated colby and homemade spicy apricot sauce. That is a long list of deliciousness raaaa!

First things first – Wholemeal pizza dough for your bread maker
You will need:
290ml water – lukewarm
3Tbsp Olive oil
1tsp Organic honey
1/2tsp Salt
2 1/2 Cups of Wholemeal flour – preferably organic
2 1/2tsp Yeast

Put the ingredients into your breadmaker pan in the order specified by your booklet and use the dough setting.
Once the breadmaker has done its thing, heavily flour a baking tray (the mixture is going to seem quite runny/goopy) and grab half the dough from the machine and place on your floured board. Sprinkle enough flour on top of your dough to allow you to roll it into a pizza shape without sticking to your rolling pin (we prefer ours quite thin) You might have to use a lot!

Now time for the toppings!
For your homemade Pizza Sauce you want to add 1/2Cup of tomato puree to a saucepan along with 1 garlic clove peeled/crushed/sliced, a good crack of rock salt, a pinch each of dried parsley and oregano and a couple of shakes of smoked paprika. Simmer while stirring until thickened.

Now add:
1 free range chicken breast cooked and sliced
1/2 red onion – diced
1/2 green capsicum – sliced
A couple of dried apricots – sliced
A handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds
A handful of grated cheese – preferably organic
A few dollops of Cashew Nut Cheese – I used this recipe here from Petite Kitchen but added slightly less water and let it thicken for half an hour before using
A nice big swirl of Spicy Apricot Sauce – the sauce recipe is from the good old Edmonds cookbook but it does contain sugar (my bottle is left over from before our sugarfree days, sigh) just in case you’re not from New Zealand, everyone here has a trusty Edmonds cookbook. Everyone.

Add anything else you like and in the oven at 180°c for 15-20 minutes it goes.
