Time for that great change of pace gourmet pizza. Amaze your family and friends with your good taste and skill. With mozzarella, white cheddar, feta, and Parmesan cheese added to butter and garlic coated crust and a little fresh tomato, and the taste is wonderful. And adding chicken is the final touch to make this one great pizza.
I have been recently reminded that the two pizza recipes I use most often do not appear on this site. This one is for daughter #1, a four cheese white pizza. This has a great taste with the mixture of cheeses.
With this pizza, I use less crust than with my normal pizza (that post is coming soon). It just wouldn’t seem right on a thick crust. Add other toppings of your choice (I always add red onion. Also here I added a farm fresh green pepper. Bacon is a must if you have it on hand).
An easy 5. I have done this at least 20 times. I could eat it for a week and still want more.
Notes: I like using thin slices of Roma tomatoes for a little more Italian taste. The chicken which is optional can be any cooked chicken you happen to have. This chicken is leftovers that I purposely cooked extra of in my last post “30 Minute Chicken Sandwiches“. I frequently use precooked frozen chicken strips that I buy for salads. Leftover rotisserie chicken would be excellent.
In a large mixing bowl, add 1 cup warm water, 1 pack rapid or quick yeast, 1 t sugar 1/2 t salt and 1 T olive oil. Mix well. Add 2 1/2 cups flour and mix. Add a little more flour if too sticky but you are making a light dough, not a heavy brick. Cover and let rise until double in size. About 30-40 minutes.
While dough is rising, prep any toppings.
Preheat oven 375 convection. Spread the dough on a large pizza pan (this is 15 inch) or cookie sheet. Melt 2 T butter in a microwave for 15-20 seconds. Mix 2 t garlic powder in the butter and spread thinly over the dough.
Top with cheeses and other toppings of choice.
Bake in an oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
