1/4 cup butter or
1 large onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) tomato paste
1 tbsp (15 mL) garam masala
1 tsp (5 mL) ground ginger
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne
1 can (796 mL) diced tomatoes
2 cups (500 mL) chopped cooked chicken
1/2 cup (125 mL) 35% whipping cream
1 lb (454 g) pizza dough
1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup (125 ) sliced green onions
1/4 cup (60 mL) cilantro leaves


In a large non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often for about 10 minutes or until golden. Add garlic, tomato paste, garam masala, ginger, cinnamon and cayenne and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in diced tomatoes, scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan; cook, stirring often for 5 to 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed and sauce is thick. Whisk in cream until smooth and well combined; simmer for about 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in chicken. Remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat barbecue grill to medium heat.

On a lightly floured surface, stretch or roll dough to roughly 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle. Place on a baking sheet or cutting board. Brush top with olive oil. Flip dough, oiled side down onto preheated grill. Grill, covered, for 3 to 6 minutes or until bubbles form on top and grill marked underneath without charring. Flip over; grill, covered, for about 1 minute, just until surface is cooked but not browned. Remove from grill, sliding onto baking sheet with the oiled side down; reduce heat to medium-low.

Spread butter chicken evenly all over pizza. Sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Slide back onto grill, cover and grill for 3 to 8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and underside is browned. Sprinkle with cilantro before serving.
