BBQ Chicken & Bacon Pizza


Our delicious lunch today - Pizza with a crispy spelt and coconut oil base topped with tomato paste, small amount of BBQ sauce, BBQ roasted chicken, mushroom, pineapple, cheese and bacon.

Recipe for the base:
Mix together 2 tsp dry yeast, 1.25c spelt flour, 1tsp sugar, 1/2tsp celtic sea salt, 1.5tb coconut oil
Add 1/3 cup very warm water (just cool enough to hold a finger in for 10 seconds)
Mix well and leave to rise
Roll out to the size of your pizza tray - I just used a large slice tray.
Use extra flour as needed to aid with rolling.
This recipe is very thin!
Allow to rise again on tray OR do as I did and top as is!

I added about 1.5 cups diced chicken, 1/2 cup bacon strips, 4 good sized mushrooms, 2tb tomato paste, 2tsp bbq sauce, 2 rings of pineapple (chopped) and cheese as needed. Next time I might add a sprinkling of herbs.
Chicken down the bottom so as not to dry out and bacon on top so it gets cooked well.

Very popular and fed 1 adult, 2 primary kids, a 4yo and a baby. NO leftovers... so when making for the family I'll double it up!



  1. Great recipe. Would you be happy to put up a link to it in my Food on Friday – Bacon Series. You could put it into the Pizza edition as well if you liked.
