Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza

Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "fusion". When I saw fusion, I immediately thought asian tacos/burritos but I have done that before ( Then I remembered that there is this Indian pizza place not too far from me and I got an idea...
While this came out really good, I suggest topping it with some cilantro but I did not have any at the time. :(
Also, I have made pizza dough before but this time I wanted to try to make a no knead dough. While this dough was alright, it was not anything special. Next time, I think I'll stick with my normal dough recipe which calls for some kneading.



  1. 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  2. 1/8 teaspoon Yeast
  3. 1 teaspoon Salt
  4. 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  5. 2 Cups Chicken , cooked and shredded
  6. 1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt Plain
  7. 2 teaspoons Garam Masala , divided
  8. 5/8 teaspoons Kosher Salt , divided

    Add 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil and 3/4 cup of water. Stir until the dough forms a ball. If there is still flour on the bottom of the bowl or the dough does not form into a single ball, add more water (I ended up using 1 cup in total). The dough should be slightly sticky and shaggy.
