Just as tasty as your nearest shawarma shop, this chicken shawarma pizza packs so much punch with extreme flavors and boldness from this unmistakable Middle Eastern marinade. And let’s not forget the yogurt sauce to tie it all together. Not only is the base of this pizza yogurt sauce but we decided to swirl some on top too, just for good measure. And it looks pretty cool too.
Fresh lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes make a great accompaniment to the light but tart yogurt sauce. These fresh elements are just what was needed with the large and in charge and totally satisfying pieces of grilled chicken shawarma. There’s never enough, you might have to make two of these pizzas, or just don’t share any. They’ll understand when you tell them how good it is.
