Chicken tzatziki pizza
For tzatziki sauce:
1 cup plain greek yogurt
½ cup sour cream
2 cloves garlic
1 cucumber, peeled, cut in quarters and seeded
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh dill
4 pieces Greek flatbread or pita breads
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded chicken breast
½ cup sliced kalamata olives
⅓ cup sliced sun-dried tomatoes
1 cup quartered artichoke hearts packed in water, drained
⅓ cup feta cheese

To prepare the tzatziki sauce, add garlic, cucumber and dill to the bowl of a food processor, fit with a metal blade and chop ingredients. Add yogurt, sour cream, lemon juice and dill and pulse to blend. Add salt to taste. Refrigerate for one hour then serve.
To prepare the pizza, preheat oven to 232°C. Place pita breads domed side down on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Slather each bread with 1-2 tablespoons of tzatziki, then top each with about ⅓ to ½ cup mozzarella cheese. Layer chicken breast, olives, tomatoes and artichoke hearts on top of the mozzarella then top with a sprinkling of feta cheese and a sprinkle of oregano.
Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and feta cheese starts to turn golden. Remove, garnish with fresh dill sprigs, red chili flakes and more feta if desired, and cut into quarters. Serve.
