How many Syns are in this Chicken Tandoori Pizza?
This Chicken Tandoori Pizza is Syn Free! You’ll need to use your Healthy Extra B for the base.
We used 35g of reduced fat Mozzarella, which you can buy from some supermarkets. This is half of one of your Healthy Extra A allowances. You could Syn the cheese which would be 3 Syns per portion.
You can serve this with loads of speedy veg too – why not take a look at our Slimming World Speed Food List and choose something from there?
A Note About Weights
Slimming World do say that the 60g is of cooked dough – so you need to be careful! We’ve experimented and cooked 65g of dough, and when baked it weighed just under 60g – so you should be ok. Just remember this we’re not trained consultants and our advice doesn’t replace that of your consultant – be sensible!
How Weight Watchers friendly is this Chicken Tandoori Pizza recipe?
A takeaway pizza will set you back at least 6 Smart Points for a small slice. Our Chicken Tandoori Pizza is 6 Smart Points for the whole pizza!
You can make a proper Fakeaway meal out of this and serve it with some corn on the cob, or how about our Coleslaw?
You could also try our Dominos Fakeaway Pepperoni Passion Pizza!
How many Calories are in this Chicken Tandoori Pizza?
A small Chicken Tandoori Pizza from Dominos is over 800 calories…aaarghhh!!
Our version of this takeaway favourite is less than 500 calories for the whole thing, and really easy to make.
How do I make this Chicken Tandoori Pizza?
Time Saving Tips
There are a few steps to making these, and they do take a while due to the proving of the dough and cooking the chicken – but it is worth it. I promise.
Time-saving tip, cook the chicken and prepare the toppings whilst your waiting for the dough to prove – it will save you a lot of time. Do not put raw chicken on this pizza!!
For the dough:
Make up to packet instructions & allow 30 mins for the dough to prove. We make up the whole pack then weigh out 70g balls of dough – the ones we don’t use we freeze.
Roll as thin as you can onto a piece of baking parchment – you may need to spray your rolling pin with Low Calorie Cooking Spray to prevent sticking
For the tomato sauce:
Throw all ingredients into a pan, bring up to the heat then turn down and simmer for 30 minutes stirring often.
Once cooked attack with a stick blender, or blitz in a food processor until smooth.
Place into a sterilised jar until ready for use. Will least a week in the fridge, or you can freeze it. Perfect for batch cooking.
For the tandoori chicken:
Slice chicken into bitesize pieces, place to one side.
In a bowl put the rest of the ingredients & mix well.
Put the chicken into the marinade mix, mix well and clingfilm/food bag and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
When the dough is proving, place on an oven tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked. Do not put raw chicken on your pizza!
For the Raita:
Mix all ingredients well & place into a food bag. Chill until ready for use. When you’re ready, snip a corner off the bag and drizzle over pizza
Assembling the pizza:
After the dough has part cooked, place a small amount of tomato sauce & spread it around. Start with your cooked Tandoori Chicken – put as little or as much as you like over the pizza.
Next your peppers, onions and mushrooms, then your cheese – make sure to distribute it evenly.
Place some onions on the top – not too many though, you don’t want them to burn!
Place in an oven pre-heated to 200°C for 12 minutes
Remove from the oven and drizzle over the raita dressing & sprinkle with torn coriander!
