This Spicy Chicken Feta Pizza is perfect for those who want to flip the script on their pizza topping game! Greek Yogurt Pizza Dough is rolled thin and topped with sauce, mozzarella, shredded chicken, spicy banana peppers and feta cheese for a deliciously addictive pizza.
This spicy chicken feta pizza dates back a decade or so. It was first introduced to me by my sister Christine back when we both worked at the same hospital. I would stop in to her department from time to time, and on one particularly lucky day she had this pizza by her station. I swear, it was love after first bite. The topping combination is one that has been a favorite ever since.
It’s pretty simple: thin crust topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella, shredded cooked chicken, banana peppers, (more mozzarella) and crumbled feta cheese. Oh-muh-goodness it’s amazing. As it bakes, the juices from the peppers mingle with the sauce and other surrounding toppings while the feta gets golden in spots. Her pizza then was drizzled with a herbed olive oil, but I just top with with fresh oregano leaves and it’s pure perfection.
I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it.
Prep and measure the ingredients and this pizza will come together in no time. For this you will need 1 recipe for pizza dough (I used this Greek Yogurt recipe), 1/2 cup or so of pizza sauce, 1 cup leftover cooked and shredded chicken, sliced banana peppers, 6 ounces mozzarella, 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese and fresh oregano for serving.
Roll out the pizza dough and transfer it to the back side of a rimmed metal sheet pan that has been sprayed with olive oil.
Spoon on the pizza sauce and spread it around leaving about 3/4-inch edge.
Top the sauce with half of the mozzarella, all of the chicken, peppers, remaining mozzarella and lastly, the feta. I give the whole pizza a light spray of olive oil before sliding the pan onto the lowest rack of my preheated 475° oven.
Bake for 14 to 18 minutes. Times may vary if making individual pizzas.
Once baked the pizza crust should be golden, the cheese melted and browned in spots. Finally it’s time to slice and serve.
Who needs pepperoni when there’s chicken, feta and banana peppers??
