Here I show how versatile a pizza oven can be.  I used the Ooni Koda Pizza Oven but this same process can be used with any outdoor pizza oven, whether it be wood or gas-fired.

I've created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help your learning to cook pizza journey! Enjoy your Pizza Cooking!

You will need to have the following item to cook meats or vegetables in your pizza oven:

To make chicken tikka kebabs you just need to follow these easy steps:

  • marinate your chicken in your favourite tikka paste overnight in the fridge
  • skewer your kebabs

The next day you will need to get your pizza oven warmed up.  Once the oven has been on full flame for 10 minutes place your skillet cast-iron pan into the oven to heat it up.

Once your pan is hot you are ready to cook your chicken tikka.  Carefully place your chicken into the hot pan and return the pan into the oven.  Cook your chicken for about 5 minutes until cooked.  Check the temperature with a meat thermometer.

In the video above I added the chicken tikka to pita bread with some home-made Tzatziki Sauce and a bit of rocket leaf/arugula.  These two ingredients work really well together.   Delightful, refreshing and spicy!

You could also use the chicken tikka as a pizza topping with some buffalo mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce.  This too is a delicious tasting pizza!  It's as easy as that and a great party idea for your guests who would like some variation and for those who would prefer food items other than pizza when you use your pizza oven to entertain!
