Preparing Mango Chicken Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Roast Chicken
Whilst this pizza is flavorsome on its own, or why not enjoy it with a fresh salad?
Put the Mango Chicken pizza on the middle shelf in oven, and wait ten minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and check the pizza.
This pizza should take approximately 15 minutes, however allow it to cook to personal taste.
About Roast Chicken

Juicy and succulent, roast chicken enhances the flavor of any meal with its subtle yet rich taste.
When making Mango Chicken Pizza, I always recommend that you use whatever kitchen items you have. My basic pizza tools are…
Very similar to a pizza stone, a pizza steel is made of, you guessed it, steel. It’s a great modern method to heat pizza well in a normal oven.
A quality rubber spatula really helps when it comes to scraping bowls and plates, etc.
Having a good dough mixer can make all the difference. You don’t want to be manually kneading forever, do you?
Pizza is a classic and beloved dish, but adding different toppings can turn it into a unique culinary experience. One of the most popular topping options is mango.
Mango adds a dynamic flavor to any pizza. For those looking for something sweet, consider using mangos combined with other fruits like pineapple or kiwi. Sweet mangoes are great complements to savory toppings such as sausage and pepperoni.
