Chicken Mushroom Pizza ( Margherita Base)

Pizza is a savory dish with an origin from Italy. Nowadays, it has become very common and widely liked by everyone throughout the World.

We used to visit Pizza Hut often 15 years back when we were in Mumbai. And the favourite was always Chicken Pizza❤

Later on in South Africa, mostly when we go out for food, if not Indian, then it was only pizza place and the favourite was always Chicken Pizza.

But now I make pizza mostly at home. It became very easy and quick to make, once I learnt to make the pizza base. We can try many new toppings if we could make it at home. For the pizza base, I have attached the link.

Chicken with mushroom is a great combination, not only for pizza but for every other dish you make at home. Even when I go to restaurants, I always like to try this combination.

Let’s go quick to check the recipe of Chicken Mushroom Pizza❤


  • Pizza dough- For 1 pizza base ( check the recipe)
  • Onion- 1 medium sized onion( sliced lengthwise)
  • Chicken breast- 1 or 2 ( sliced to small pieces)
  • Mushroom- 5 ( sliced lengthwise)

Mix the sliced chicken breast pieces with pepper and salt. Saute it in olive oil. Make it half-cooked.

Take a baking tray and grease it with olive oil. Spread the pizza dough to the corners of the baking tray or pizza stone using fingers.
Prick with the fork throughout the spreaded pizza dough. Mark with the fingers throughout the corners of the spreaded pizza dough.
Spread the pizza sauce and spread some cheese on top. This is the Margherita pizza base.
Spread the sliced onions and mushrooms.
Then add the half-cooked chicken pieces. Sprinkle the spices on top along with little salt. Add the chopped garlic too.
Add the required cheese on top. Some will need it more cheesy while others will like it to be less cheesy. Decide as per your need and taste.
Keep this in a pre-heated oven and bake it at 200 degrees till the crust turns brown. This takes somewhere inbetween 15 to 20 minutes. The timing and the temperature may vary from oven to oven.
