Sabauce Chicken & Chickpea Pizza

by Erin

This Indian-inspired pizza is made with one of my favorite locally made marinades – Sabauce!

I love when local companies collaborate to create something amazingly delicious. But often times they are only for a limited time. For example, Mikey’s Late Night Slice and Sabuace made a pizza together and it was incredible! They made both a chicken version and a chickpea version and honestly they were equally delicious.

I recently was reminiscing about this pizza and decided to make it myself at home. With a little helpful input from the guys behind Sabauce, I think I came pretty damn close! The base is a mixture of marinara and Sabauce, topped with mozzarella, tomato, red onion, and either chicken or chickpeas marinated in Sabauce.

Instead of choosing between chicken and chickpeas, I went ahead and used both! But you could easily just use one or the other based on your preferences. Gotta love the forgiving nature of pizza toppings!

To finish it off, the pizza is topped with a swirl of Greek yogurt, sprinkled with fresh cilantro, and the crust is brushed with garlic butter. It’s one heck of a pizza, so get your hands on some of that marinade ASAP.

This was definitely one of the best pizzas I have made. It’s unique enough to excite the palate but is approachable to those who have never experienced Indian flavors before.

We use this Indian-inspired Sabauce marinade all the time, especially when we are looking for an easy way to add flavor to a quick meal – use it in chicken, steak, lamb, veggies, anything! And no this isn’t sponsored ;-). But they did give me promo codes to share FREESHIP or INSTA10 to use for online orders!

  3. Spread the sauce over the crust in an even layer leaving an edge for the crust. Layer with cheese, tomato slices, red onion, chicken, and chickpeas.
  4. Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 12-15 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven, top with a swirl of Greek yogurt swirl, sprinkle with cilantro, and brush crust with garlic butter. Slice and serve.



*If not using a pizza stone, just transfer dough to a pan, top and bake.
