  • If using a stand mixer, add of the ingredients into the mixing bowl, use the dough hook attachment and mix on medium speed until smooth (about 6 minutes).
  • Once the dough comes together, transfer it to a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning it to coat the dough with the oil. Cover the bowl with a clean towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • For extra depth of flavor, allow to rise for 30 minutes then transfer to refrigerator and allow to rise overnight.

  • Fry it for about 3 minutes on each side until fully done, allow to rest for 15 minutes then shred it.
  • Transfer one part of the dough to a floured surface.
  • Use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten.
  • If the dough is shrinking too much when flattening, cover with plastic wrap, cover and allow to rest for an additional 20-30 minutes to relax the gluten.
  • When the dough is flat(about an ½ a cm, transfer to a pizza pan. Flatten the dough again in pizza pan.
  • Top the dough with pizza sauce, then freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, seasoned chicken, bacon bits and sliced bell peppers.
  • Heat your oven to 450°F (232°C)
