Chicken Teriyaki Pizza

Even though there’s just three in my family, we always have different thoughts on what’s for dinner. This teriyaki pizza is my solution to when I want Chinese take-out and my husband wants pizza. It’s the perfect compromise for us. It has all the delicious flavors of one of my favorite Asian dishes, chicken teriyaki in pizza form. I made my homemade pizza crust for this pizza, but you could also take a short-cut and buy a fresh pizza dough from your grocer, or even one of those pre-made pizza crusts. I added red bell peppers, green onions and pineapple for toppings. Then I used fresh sliced mozzarella, but you could also use regular shredded mozzarella.

To get my pizza crust just right, I usually proof it in a controlled warm place, my oven. To do this I put the dough in a metal bowl, and add another large bowl of warm water on the rack below. Then I leave it to proof. It works out well this way, because I let my home fluctuate in temperature to help save on heating and cooling costs. I also make sure to bake on the hottest temperature, for my oven it is 550 degrees.

Chicken Teriyaki Pizza Recipe


For the crust

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 – 4 cups flour
3 tablespoons olive oil


1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon grated garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon corn starch


1 red bell pepper, sliced
8 green onions, sliced
1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced


1. Combine warm water, yeast, honey, salt, onion and garlic powder in your stand mixer. Mix until yeast dissolves. Turn mixer to low and add flour until dough starts to pull away from bowl. Knead for about 10 minutes. Dough should be sticky. Grease a large metal bowl with olive oil. Form dough into a ball and transfer to bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a towel. Let rise about 2 hours in a warm place. Punch down, from into a ball again and let rise again until it doubles in size.

2. Preheat large skillet. Drizzle with olive oil. Add chicken and brown. Dissolve cornstarch in water. Add teriyaki sauce and cornstarch in water to skillet. Add grated ginger and garlic. Mix well. Cook over medium heat until sauce is very thick.

3. Preheat oven to highest temperature, mine is 550 degrees. Spread pizza dough onto a stone. Dough will make one thick crust, or 2 thinner crusts. Pre-bake crust in 550 degree oven until lightly browned. Remove from oven.

4. Top with chicken and sauce, pineapple, green pepper, and green onions. Add cheese and return to oven. Bake at 550 degrees until lightly browned.
