Chicken and bacon pizza

Homemade chicke and bacon pizza
Pizza at home is always the best! Last night I thought I would throw together something a little bit different: a chicken and bacon pizza on a yummy tomato and oregano base. And it was amazing! So although this recipe post will be a little short, I wanted to share because ... well, YOU SHOULD HAVE IT FOR DINNER! ... subtle enough?

No, really ... if you can try it, I would recommend because it was such a good way to just sit and relax after being so busy.

What you will need

1 large pizza base - I much prefer making my own base, so if you would like to try your own check out my pizza base recipe. Otherwise, I pre-made one is fine as well.

For the topping:
4 chicken thigh fillets, cut into pieces
4 pieces of short cut bacon, cut into slices
1 small onion, diced
1 - 1 1/2 cups of cheese, depending how much you cheese you like

Optional: Pineapple pieces (around 200-250g), and black olives

For the base sauce:
1/4 cup of tomato sauce
2  tablespoons of tomato paste
1 Tbsp of oregano
1/2 tsp of garlic

Fry off the chicken, bacon and onion in a frying pan with a little bit of oil until the chicken is cooked, then put it aside to cool slightly while you do the sauce. In a small bowl add all the sauce ingredients and mix together. Spread the sauce on your base, followed by your chicken, bacon and onion from the pan, and the pineapple and olives. Finally top with cheese.

Bake in a 200°C oven for 20 mins or until the cheese is melted with a little bit of colour.

P.S. it is always great with a BBQ sauce base.
