Ingredients Dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 200 grams cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Make the Dough:
    • In a large bowl, mix the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add warm water and olive oil, stirring until a shaggy dough forms. Knead on a floured surface for 5-7 minutes until smooth. Let it rise in a greased, covered bowl for 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the Toppings:
    • In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Cook the shredded chicken until browned, set aside.
    • Using the same skillet, add the remaining oil, sauté onion and bell peppers until softened. Season with soy sauce, oregano, black pepper, and salt.
  3. Assemble and Cook the Pizza:
    • Heat a large skillet or griddle. Stretch the dough into a 12-inch circle, and lightly brush with olive oil. Place in the skillet, cooking until golden on the bottom.
    • Spread pizza sauce, add chicken, vegetables, and sprinkle with mozzarella and red pepper flakes.
    • Cover and cook until the cheese melts and the crust is perfectly crisp.
  4. Garnish and Serve:
    • Sprinkle with fresh parsley if desired and serve hot.

Tips for Success

  • Skillet Size: Ensure your skillet is large enough to accommodate the stretched dough.
  • Cheese Options: Experiment with different cheeses like cheddar or provolone for varying flavors.
  • Dough Consistency: If the dough is sticky, gradually add a bit more flour while kneading.

Health Benefits

This pizza offers a healthier alternative to traditional pizzas with controlled ingredients that reduce overall calories without sacrificing flavor. Bell peppers add a good dose of vitamins A and C, while using olive oil provides heart-healthy fats.


  • Can I use pre-made dough? Absolutely, if short on time, a store-bought dough can work well.
  • How do I store leftovers? Keep any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet for best results.
  • Can I add different toppings? Yes, feel free to customize with toppings like olives, mushrooms, or different meats to suit your taste.
