Cajun spiced chicken pizza with rocket, avocado and mango salad

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)
6 (about 180g each) skinless/boneless chicken thigh fillets, cut into 2cm pieces
2 tbs Cajun or Creole seasoning
2 tsp olive oil
2 pizza basest
300g (3 cups) grated mozzarella
2 ripe mangoes, peeled, chopped into 1cm cubes
2 ripe avocados, chopped into 1cm cubes
1 red onion, halved, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 tbs fresh lime juice
1 fresh long red chilli, deseeded, finely chopped
Baby rocket leaves, to serve


Preheat oven to 180°C. 
Combine the chicken and Cajun seasoning in a large bowl. Toss to coat the chicken in the seasoning.
Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. 
Add one-third of the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally until golden brown all over. 
Transfer to a heatproof bowl. 
Repeat, in 2 more batches, with the remaining chicken, reheating pan between each batch.

Place pizza bases on 2 baking trays. Sprinkle chicken evenly over both bases then top with mozzarella cheese. 
Bake both pizzas for 7 minutes swapping trays around and cook for a further 7 minutes or until golden brown.

Combine the mango, avocado, onion, coriander, lime juice and chilli in a medium bowl with lime juice.
Sprinkle the pizzas with avocado and mango salsa and rocket leaves and cut into slices to serve.
