For those of you that don’t know, Andrew’s Jamaican. Well, Jamaican American. He was born here in the US, but his parents were both born in Jamaica. When we started dating, roughly five years ago, I could literally count on my hand the number of times I’d had jerk anything before…because from all my recollection, it was ZERO. So when I started going around his parents, we frequently had it and I wasn’t a big fan. So, it’s been sort of an acquired taste that I have come to love and now have very frequently. Probably, once a month. But, it’s always been his mom making it. I’ve never even attempted. Until this….
What you are left with is a taste bud explosion. Promise to change the way you make pizzas in the future. I can guarantee you that.
3 tbsp Jamaican Jerk chicken seasoning
1 tbsp fresh Lime juice (about half of one fresh lime)
2 tbsp Orange juice
1 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp white vinegar
2 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 homemade pizza dough
1 6oz container plain greek yogurt
2 cups Heavy cream
1 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 cup Red onion, thinly sliced
1 Green pepper, diced
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
Mix all marinade ingredients together, except chicken, and whisk until well combined. Add chicken and combine well. Add to ziplock bag or tightly sealed container and refrigerate overnight (at least 8-12 hours).
Make white sauce in a blender and refrigerate until ready to use.
Make pizza dough according to directions. Let rise.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. According to directions, knead out and cook pizza dough for first time. While that is cooking, heat skillet on medium high. Add entire container of chicken mixture. Cook thoroughly, about 10 minutes. (Chicken should have an internal temperature at 165 degrees f). Add onions and peppers and cook another 2-3 minutes.
Add white sauce to dough in rings. Add 1 1/2 cups mozzarella. Add chicken mixture evenly across the top. Add remaining cheese. Insert back into the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Top with fresh pineapple. Slice and serve immediately.
