Chicken & Vegetable Pizza (on Garlic Herb Crust)
Preheat oven at 425'F (220'C)
If you are baking the dough on a pizza stone, you may place your toppings on the dough, and bake immediately. If you are baking your pizza in a pan, lightly oil the pan, and let the dough rise
for 15 or 20 minutes before topping and baking it.
Bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
(you can the vegetable medley of your choice)
1 plantain chopped into small pieces, pre-cook plantain (boil or fry)
Chopped spinach (or kale)
Chopped red pepper
Optional: mushroom, sweet corn, olives, and broccoli
1.5 cups mozzarella or cheddar (or medley) grated
2 tablespoons olive oil (to drizzle on top of pizza before placing it in the oven.
1 cup marinated chicken cups (I marinated mine in herbs and chili)
Optional: sprinkle red pepper flakes, garlic powder, basil on top of pizza before you place it in the oven.
Total time: 90mins
Inactive: 1hr 10mins
· 3 1/2 to 4 cups bread flour (for crispy crust) plus more for rolling
· 1 teaspoon sugar
· 1 envelope instant dry yeast
· 2 teaspoons kosher salt
· 2 teaspoons garlic powder
· 1 teaspoon thyme, parsley, oregano, basil
· 1 1/2 cups water, 110 degrees F
· 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 2 teaspoons
Combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and combine. While the mixer is running, add the water and 2 tablespoons of the oil and beat until the dough forms into a ball. If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a solid ball. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.
Grease a large bowl with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, add the dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm area to let it double in size, about 1 hour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 2 equal pieces. Cover each with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let them rest for 10 minutes.
