The Only Pizza You’ll Ever Want Again

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes


1 16-ounce package pizza dough, brought to room temperature

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano


1/3 pound broccoli from trimmed broccoli bin in produce section, 1/3 head

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan

3 cloves cracked garlic

1/2 pound chicken breast cut for stir fry, or chicken tenders

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup part skim ricotta cheese

10 sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and sliced

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, available on dairy aisle

12 to 15 leaves fresh basil, torn or stacked and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 500°F.

On 12-inch nonstick pizza pan, stretch out dough and form pizza crust. Drizzle olive oil on crust and spread it with a pastry brush over the dough to the edges.

Sprinkle crust with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

In a small covered saucepan, bring 2 inches water to a boil. Separate broccoli tops into florets, discarding lower stalks or reserving for soup. Salt water and add broccoli florets. Cook, covered, 3 to 5 min­utes. Drain broccoli and set on cut­ting board. Chop broccoli florets into small pieces.

Heat a small nonstick pan over medium high to high heat. Add oil, cracked garlic and chicken. Season with salt and pepper.

Brown chicken until lightly golden all over, 3 to 5 minutes.

Chop sautéed chicken and garlic on a cutting board into small pieces.

To assemble pizza, dot crust with broc­coli and chicken. Dot crust with spoonfuls of ricotta, spreading gently with the back of spoon. Add sliced sun-dried tomatoes, scattering around pizza to edges. Complete assembly with a thin layer of shredded mozzarella.

Place pizza in oven on middle rack and lower heat to 450°F.

Bake 12 minutes, until cheese is deep golden in color and crust is brown and crisp at the edges.

Remove from oven and let stand 5 min­utes. Top with lots of torn or shredded basil.

Cut pizza into 8 slices using pizza wheel and serve.

Tip: Put an individual serving size of chicken in Ziploc Brand Perfect Portions Bags right after purchasing and freeze in a Ziploc Brand Freezer Bag. That way you don’t have to defrost more chicken than you need for a meal.
