In a large mixing bowl, add 2 cups warm water, 1 pack rapid or quick yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix well.
Cover and let rise until double in size. About 30-40 minutes.
While dough is rising, prep any toppings.
Preheat oven 375° convection or 400° conventional. Spread the dough on a well-oiled 16 inch large pizza pan or 1/2 sheet baking tray. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a microwave for 15-20 seconds. Mix 2 teaspoons garlic powder in the butter and spread thinly over the dough.
Top with cheeses and other toppings of choice.
Bake in oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
This is for a standard thickness 16-inch crust. You can make it thin crust by cutting in half.
A 12-inch round pizza is 1/2 the size of a 16-inch. Note- we are talking square inches.
The dough needs to be a bit light, so will be a little sticky.
The chicken is pre-cooked leftovers from wherever you want it.
I don't recommend changing the cheeses much. It is the feature of this recipe.
