Full of flavour, instead of the carb load from a pizza base, combine all your favourite pizza toppings and bake over chicken.
1kg chicken portions, I used thighs and drumsticks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
10ml (2tsp) dried mixed herbs
1 x 400g chopped tomato and onion mix
1 small green pepper, cored and sliced
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
3-4 anchovy fillets, sliced lengthways
A handful of black olives
8 slices of salami or chorizo or any smoked meat
Mozzarella slices, as many as there are chicken portions
1 Preheat the oven to 180°C. 2 Place the chicken portions on the baking tray and drizzle over olive oil and rub over the chicken. Season and sprinkle over the herbs. 3 Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
4 Combine the tomato and onion mix with the garlic, anchovy and olives and spoon over the chicken. 5 If the salami slices are big fold and tuck between the chicken portions. 6 Return to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes.
7 Remove from the oven and top the chicken portions with mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven for 10 minutes to melt the cheese, then serve, garnished with fresh basil.
