Description

Garlic Chicken Pizza – My perfect pizza crust recipe with a white garlic cream sauce, grilled chicken, and mozzarella cheese.


Ingredients

Scale
  • pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast, grilled and sliced thinly
  • 16 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated (about four cups)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven 450 degrees.
  2. Sprinkle cornmeal evenly onto a silpat lined 13 by 18 inch baking sheet.
  3. Spread pizza dough to the edges of the pan. If the pizza dough seems to tear as you spread it, just let it sit for 5 minutes, and it will become more elastic and stretch easily.
  4. Cover the dough with a kitchen cloth and allow to rise while you make the sauce.
  5. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  6. Add garlic and saute until soft (30 seconds), but do not burn.
  7. Sprinkle flour over butter and garlic and whisk together for one minute.
  8. Slowly whisk in the milk and let the sauce simmer over medium low heat for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  9. Stir in parmesan cheese and then add the grilled chicken to the sauce and remove from heat.
  10. Spread the garlic sauce and the chicken evenly over the dough, top with mozzarella cheese.
  11. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.
  12. Remove from oven and allow to set for 5 minutes before slicing.
  13. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
