Prep time:20 mins

Cook time:19 mins

Makes: 2 pizzas


  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, chopped
  • Finely grated zest of 1 large lemon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 6-8 chicken tenderloins
  • 1½ cups self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup Leggo’s Pizza Sauce
  • ½ small red capsicum, sliced
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 130-150g bocconcini cheese, sliced
  • 4 spring onions, sliced, for garnish
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


Step 1

Place 1 tablespoon oil, coriander, garlic, chilli, lemon zest and juice in a food processor. Blend until paste consistency. Spread over chicken and marinate for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, 2 tablespoons oil and milk. Stir into dry ingredients until it forms a soft dough. Turn mixture onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Divide the dough in half and roll out to fit 2 x 25cm greased pizza trays.

Step 3

Heat remaining oil in a frypan. Cook chicken, for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through, turning regularly. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Slice into 5mm think slices and set aside.

Step 3

Spread Leggo’s Pizza Sauce evenly over bases and top with chicken, capsicum, cherry tomatoes and cheese. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for 12-15 minutes or until cheese has melted and base is cooked.

Step 4

Sprinkle with spring onions and serve with lemon wedges.

Tasty Tip!

For a spicier heat level, include the seeds of the chilli when making the peri peri paste.
