White Pizza with Broccoli and Chicken
*This recipe is for one 10-12 in pizza, the crust recipe will make enough dough for 2 so either double the ingredients and sauce or do like I do and freeze half the dough for next time.
White Sauce- (recipe credit)
1 TBSP olive oil
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 TBSP all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
2 TBSP grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add red pepper flakes, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and flour. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes than whisk in milk. Reduce heat and whisk and stir until sauce is smooth and has started to thicken. Remove pan from heat and whisk in the parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Set aside.
1 TBSP olive oil
3 cups broccoli florets
salt and garlic pepper
1 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken breast meat
1 cup shredded cheese
(I used the blend of shredded cheese from the grocery store)
Turn your oven on set at 450 degrees. Cook diced chicken seasoning with salt and garlic pepper, remove from pan. Place broccoli in pan and cook until almost done, it will finish cooking in the oven. Set the broccoli and chicken aside. Now spray cookie sheet or pizza pan with cooking spray, and prep your pizza dough by either rolling it out to the size of your pan or use your hands and just spread it out starting in the middle like I do. Now use a fork and poke some holes all over the dough and bake for about 5 minutes by itself. (If you are using store bought crust you will obviously skip the pre-baking step... just put topping and sauce on and bake it according to directions on the crust.) Remove from oven and put on sauce and toppings and return to the oven until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
I am having a hard time wanting to eat hamburgers for dinner after writing this recipe. Isn't it awesome that God gave us taste buds... just another reason to be thankful besides this one...
