curry and pizza might not be a combination you think of right away but you'll have to trust us on this one. the recipe is inspired by a flatbread we had this past weekend and we just couldn't get over how wonderful the flavors were. we knew we had to create our own version of this delicious new taste while it was still fresh in our minds. the pineapple chutney is a version of a recipe i created for vegetarian times for banana chutney and is good on almost anything - chicken, roast pork, baked yams, etc. hope you enjoy this one as much as we did! 

Curry Chicken Flatbread with Pineapple Chutney

1 lb pizza dough
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, chopped
2 tbs plain yogurt
1 tsp curry powder
4 tsp olive oil, divided
1/2 red onion, sliced
4 oz fresh mozzarella or burrata
1/2 small yam, peeled & sliced thin on mandolin
1/2 cup pineapple chutney, see recipe below
2 tbs chopped cilantro
preheat oven to 450 degrees F. in a small bowl, combine chicken, yogurt and curry powder and stir to combine. heat 1 tsp olive oil in a small pan and saute chicken until most of the liquid has evaporated and chicken is just cooked, about 5 minutes. in another small pan, heat 1 tsp olive oil and add sliced onion. saute over medium low heat for 10 minutes or until caramelized. 
on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a 1/4-1/2-inch thick, long oval shape. prick the dough with a fork several times and brush with remaining 2 tsp olive oil. spread with cheese, layer slices of yam, and top with caramelized onions and curry chicken.
bake on a pizza stone for 18-22 minutes or until crust is browned on the edges. top with pineapple chutney and cilantro.
