Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Jerk chicken — For a more intense flavor, marinate the chicken in jerk seasoning overnight before cooking.
  • Scotch bonnet pepper sauce — Adjust the amount according to your spice preference. Add more for extra heat or reduce for a milder taste.
  • Caribbean spice blend — If you can't find a pre-made blend, you can make your own by combining equal parts of allspice, thyme, paprika, and nutmeg.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, preheat your baking sheet or pizza stone before placing the pizza crust on it.
  • Experiment with different tropical toppings like mango, coconut, or plantains to add more Caribbean flair.
  • If you prefer a vegetarian version, substitute the jerk chicken with grilled vegetables or tofu.
  • Serve the pizza with a side of fresh lime wedges for a burst of citrus flavor.
  • If you like it spicy, drizzle extra scotch bonnet pepper sauce over the pizza before serving.

Serving advice

Serve the Caribbean-Style Pizza hot and fresh from the oven. Cut it into slices and enjoy it as a main course or share it as a delightful appetizer at your next Caribbean-themed gathering.

Presentation advice

To enhance the tropical presentation, garnish the pizza with additional diced pineapple, bell peppers, and cilantro leaves. The vibrant colors will make the pizza even more visually appealing.
