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.

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.
After the dough has part cooked, place a small amount of tomato sauce and spread it around.
Start with your cooked tandoori chicken – put as little or as much as you like over your pizza.
Next your peppers, onions and mushrooms.
Next 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.

Jo wFriday 29th September 2017
A question- when freezing the other portions for later, do you shape them first?
& a tip- ALDI bread mix is back in stock 🙂
Rachel AThursday 7th September 2017
How many smart points is this for WW? Thanks x
YasminSaturday 29th July 2017
I made the pizza today-it was divine.My kids and husband loved it.Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.
Charlie GrettonWednesday 17th February 2021
Can you just clarify for me do you cook the dough before putting toppings on? Recipe reads like you part cook it if so how long for and what temperature
HollyThursday 18th February 2021
Hey Charlie, I’ve just tweaked the steps slightly to make it a little clearer. In step 2 of the pizza base method when the dough is finished proving, place on an oven tray and cook in the oven at 200ºC for 12 minutes until part cooked. The chicken is then cooked separately and the pizza base is then removed from the oven topped with the toppings and put back into the oven for a further 12 minutes. Hope that helps!

Does it have to be Aldi Bread mix as I have now visited two different Aldi Stores and neither have it
LoraineThursday 22nd June 2017

YaizaMonday 15th May 2017
Hi Kay I live in Tenerife so don’t have Aldi but have Lidl can you tell me the weight of the bread mix you use then I can substitute with Aldi as theirs are only available in large bags thnx E x
Miriam MooreSaturday 8th April 2017
Are there any alternatives to the Aldi bread mix please? We don’t have Aldi here ????
Brev landyFriday 7th April 2017
Please could you let me know if the base is cooked first for 20mins before putting toppings on. Abd then it goes back in oveb? Thanks
KateTuesday 11th April 2017
No, the toppings are put on raw, but the chicken should be cooked for up to 20 minutes, whilst the dough is proving
LisaFriday 31st March 2017
When making base do you add yeast to wholemeal bread mix?
KateSaturday 1st April 2017
No, it’s a complete bread mix so there’s no need to add anything other than warm water
EmmaTuesday 7th March 2017
I was wondering the same as the comment on here, is it 60g after cooking or?
