California Pizza Kitchen Jamaican Jerk Chicken Pizza

I tried this tonight and it was tasty! I couldn't find Jerk Seasoning so I made my own with the following recipe:

  • Jerk Seasoning
  • Combine:
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Jerk Chicken Pieces
1/2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons jerk seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

To make Jerk Chicken:

In a clean mixing bowl, thoroughly mix the Jerk seasoning and Cayenne pepper.

Coat chicken breasts with olive oil and jerk seasoning/cayenne pepper mix and grill.

Cut breasts into 3/4-inch pieces.

Caribbean Sauce - (I suggest doubling this)
1/2 tablespoon cold water
1/2 teaspoon Wondra Flour
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
3/4 teaspoon jerk seasoning

To make Caribbean Sauce:

Add water to a mixing bowl.

Slowly sprinkle flour into water while whisking at the same time. Break up any clumps.

Add sweet chili sauce and jerk seasoning to flour mixture. Mix thoroughly.

Add sauce to a non-stick saute pan and cook over high flame for approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Stir continuously.

When sauce is thickened transfer to a container and store at room temperature.

For the Pizza

Pizza dough - (I used Joy's recipe that is listed under pizza dough)
Caribbean Sauce
3-4 cups mozzarella
1/4 cup roasted red and yellow peppers
1/4 cup sliced yellow onions
1/4 cup crispy bacon
13 to 15 pieces Jerk Chicken (3/4-inch)
Sprinkling of additional mozzarella

To make the pizza:

Use a spoon to spread the Caribbean sauce over pizza dough.

Distribute ingredients on the pizza and cook according to the dough directions.
