Whole Wheat Chicken Fajita Pizza

I love making pizzas on request on my loved ones more than eating i enjoy cooking and serving food to others i love to see the glee in their eyes..My 4 yr old nephew who is my god child loves anything what i cook and keeps demanding to make things he likes. .HE loves my pizza and cakes  (does it sound like I'm blowing my own trumpet) well no I'm not bragging  but sharing my happiness with you all..HE says My goma makes the best pizza because he knows i will add lots of cheese and customise the toppings as  per his choice..
He was pestering me to bake a pizza it was almost a month since he had a pizza so i thought as it was last day of vacation why not treat him with a pizza ..This time I thought I'll make a Whole wheat pizza and went on..I was really surprised to see that the whole wheat pizza was as delish and soft as the one made with refined flour/maida ..
I checked the fridge there was no chicken so I first kneaded the dough left it to proof and went to buy chicken .The dough rose beautifully till the time I finished marinating the chicken and kept the oven to preheat and baked the base pan fried the chicken and chopped the bell peppers and onion while Sheldon was impatiently waiting for his pizza.
I arranged the pizza and put it in the oven to bake ..As soon the timer went off he was shouting with joy to enjoy his pizza i had to make him wait since it was piping hot and he could have burnt his tongue..till then  quickly captured few shots for posting this..As he tasted I could see the dimples and the joy in his eyes and he said Goma (godmother) this is the best pizza ever..lol I was happy not because he said its the best but because i knew i fed him something good and healthy by making a whole wheat based pizza..

Ok I think I wrote enough now off to the recipe..


Method :

for the pizza base refer this recipe only substitute the flour with 3 cups wholewheat flour /atta

For the Chicken marinade
200 gms Boneless chicken cut into fine chunks (Usually chicken is cut in strips for fajita but i prefered chunks in pizza)

1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1/2 tsp crushed pepper

Note
I have used 3 cups whole wheat flour ,you could take 50:50 of APF/maida and wholewheat flour or 1 cup maida/apf and 2 cups atta/wholewheat flour
I had to knead for 15 min+ to get  a smooth dough..
Vegetarians can use paneer instead

  9. There is nothing like the priceless expression on a child's face! It is so difficult to get complements from my kids, that the time they say something nice about my food, I literally float! Hehe... the pizza looks amazing... I have made with whole wheat flour but somehow didn't like the denseness the base gave... maybe I will try your recipe... :)
