Italian Chicken Sandwich Recipe

The first time I had eaten Italian Chicken Sandwich at Pizza Hut, the taste was delicious, but that was not spicy. I baked it according to my taste and amazingly there was no problem baking a soft sandwich.

So simple and easy, I used chicken, capsicum, onion, and pizza sauce in the filling. This is perfect to serve in tea time treat.

Pizza dough is used in it. Everyone knows how to knead the dough so I didn’t capture those pictures. You will find below step-by-step pictures on how to make the sandwich.
