RECIPE TIPS If you are making the pizza dough from scratch, I highly recommend that the yeast be proofed before being added to the dough.This guarantees that your yeast is enacted and this way when you add it to the batter combination, you realize that the mixture will rise.
The tandoori chicken can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for three to four days.
Because pre-shredded cheese contains stabilizers, it does not melt easily, so I recommend grating it fresh yourself.

For the Pizza Batter
Whisk the warm water, yeast and granulated sugar together in a bowl.Cover and allow to stand for roughly five minutes.Yeast that has been properly activated appears foamy and has completely dissolved in water.The oven should also be preheated to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (66 degrees Celsius), and once it has reached that temperature, it should be turned off.
If you are kneading the dough by hand, you can use any bowl with olive oil, salt, and flour.After that, add the yeast and beat for about two minutes on low speed.Until a cohesive dough ball has formed, continue kneading the dough on medium speed for at least 7-8 minutes.Add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time if the dough appears too sticky.However, don’t add too much flour at once.If your dough bounces back slowly when you poke it with a finger, it is ready to rise.
Transfer the dough to a large bowl that has been lightly greased.Use your hands to roll it around so that the dough is completely covered in oil.Cover, place in the preheated oven (which is now turned off), and leave the oven door slightly open.The dough will rise for 60 to 90 minutes.
Divide the dough into two equal balls and punch out any air once it has doubled in size.Roll out into discs of 12 inches if using both.You can freeze them for later use or place them in the refrigerator covered for up to one day if you want to use them later.The dough is freeze-able for up to two months.
Allow the molded mixture to ascend for a couple of moments prior to adding the garnishes.

The tandoori chicken and other toppings should be added.
