The Only Pizza You’ll Ever Want Again

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Crust

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

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Toppings

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.

Combine rice, meat and beans with spices and grill seasoning. Form 4 big patties, then heat 1 tablespoon oil (a turn of the pan) in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Cook patties 7 to 8 minutes on each side.

While burgers cook, combine avocado with garlic, lime zest and juice, jalapeño and red onion.

Mash to roughly combine, then stir in the sour cream.

Place burgers on buns with lettuce and tomato, and top with sour cream guacamole.
