Shropshire Lad's Chicken Pizza Pie - Serves 2

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 40 minutes


  • 600g strong white flour
  • 1 sachet of fast action yeast
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1 courgette, chopped
  • 2 sweet red peppers, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 600g chicken thigh fillets
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 50g mature cheddar, grated
  • 50g double Gloucester, grated
  • 80g mozzarella, sliced
  • 50g peperoni slices
  • fresh basil leaves
  • salt and pepper


  1. Mix together the flour, yeast, plus a pinch of salt and sugar in a bowl to form the pizza dough.
  2. On a floured surface knead the dough for around five minutes and then return to the bowl, cover and leave to rest until risen and doubled in size.
  3. Whist waiting for the dough to rise make a start on the Pizza Pie filling by putting the chopped courgette, sweet red pepper, onion and chicken into the largest of the Set of 3 Skillets.
  4. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper, plus paprika and mix together with your hands. 
  5. Put the Skillet into the hot Wood Fired Oven for 10-20 minutes.
  6. Liberally flour a flat surface and roll out the risen dough - you need the final shape to be a bigger circumference than the medium Skillet.
  7. Place the base in the Skillet and work the edge of the base up the side of the pan to create a lip.
  8. Fill the Pizza Pie with the cooked chicken and vegetables.
  9. Cover with The Perfect Tomato Sauce and top with all the cheeses.
  10. Add the pepperoni slices and a few basil leaves.
  11. Slide the Pizza Pie into the Wood Fired Oven - make sure its hot before doing so.
  12. Cook until ready.
