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.

Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Steps

  1. Prepare the Harissa by combining the tomato paste, cayenne pepper, cumin, lime juice, olive oil and salt in a bowl. Set aside for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 days before using.

  2. Preheat the oven according to packaged pizza crust directions.

  3. Assemble the pizza by spreading Harissa on the pizza and leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Sprinkle the Harissa with the shredded cheese.

  4. Divide the chicken, spinach and roasted red pepper slices evenly over the cheese.

  5. Cook the pizza according to the directions until the cheese is bubbly and completely melted, about 15 minutes.

  6. Carefully remove the pizza from the oven, cut into 8-10 slices and serve immediately.
