Chicken Doner Kebab Pizza
Our favourite Brummie @chefbradcarter has reinvented the classic kebab with quality chicken, salad and tangy yoghurt on pizza
Brad started One Star Döner Bar as a takeaway business, when his main Michelin star restaurant was forced to close during lockdown.
Inspired by eating kebabs served by street food traders in Berlin. His kebabs are a gourmet take on a take-out classic.
1 Neapolitan style dough ball
For the Chicken Döner
1kg/2.2lb chicken thighs, minced 3 times
5g/0.2oz garlic powder
4g/0.1oz onion powder
2g/0.07oz chilli flakes
2g /0.09oz dried oregano
2g/0.07oz ground white pepper
30g/1.1oz ice water
2 large skewers
For the Tomato Hot Sauce
5 red chillies
Tin of San Marzano tomatoes
75ml/2.5floz red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic
For the Yoghurt Dressing
250g/8.8oz natural yoghurt
40g/1.4oz mint leaves
40g/ 1.4oz coriander leaves
Salt & black pepper
For the Salad
1 cucumber, diced
2 salad tomatoes, diced & de seeded
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced
4 spring onions, thinly sliced
4 whole pickled chillies
Mix the minced chicken with all the ingredients apart from the ice water, mix, mix & mix again. Add the meat to a cold blender & slowly add the ice water to make a paste, refrigerate for a couple of hours.
For the tomato hot sauce, roast the chilli's and garlic in the Gozney at around 380°C/720°F until softened, remove from the oven, cover & allow to cool.
Once the chillies are cool, peel, finely chop and add to the tomatoes along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix and set aside.
For the yoghurt dressing, blend the yoghurt with the mint & coriander until bright green & smooth, season with the salt & pepper & set aside.
Preheat a cast iron sheet in the Gozney ready for the kebabs. Remove the chicken döner mix from the fridge & start to shape them onto the skewers, using a bowl of cold water to shape them onto the skewers.
Add the skewers to the cast iron pan and grill, turning intermittently to cook evenly, around 4-5 minutes. Let the meat reach an internal temperature of 75°c/176°f. You can check this using the Gozney Dome probe.
Remove the skewers & rest on a chopping board.
Roll out the dough ball to a pizza then top with the tomato hot sauce, cook the pizza base for 90 seconds & remove from the oven, slice the kebabs & arrange over the pizza then top with salad, then a generous amount of the yoghurt dressing then the pickled chillies.
