To make the Pizza.. take half of the dough and roll out in to a very thin base (when baking it will puff), bake in a 170C oven until back of the pizza base gets slightly brown, now flip the pizza base upside down, spread a generous amount of pizza sauce, arrange vegetables, sprinkle the tandoori chicken pieces evenly, on this shave mozzarella cheese a lot.
Bake in oven until cheese is melted and the sides of pizza get slightly brown. Serve Hot............................... Enjoy!
