Spicy Chicken Harissa Pizza

Spicy Chicken Harissa Pizza

This pizza gets a bold smoky flavour from a unique North African spice paste called Harissa. This sauce lends itself perfectly to this pizza’s delightful combination of crust and melted mozzarella cheese. If you like milder flavours, then make sure to use half the amount of cayenne pepper.
