Chicken-Artichoke White Pizza

Standard

Pizza

Dough – Ingredients

  • 7g or 1 packet of dry active yeast
  • 235ml or 1 cup warm water (110-115 (F))
  • 200g or 1 1/2 cups white flour (bread flour for a crisper crust, AP for a chewier crust)
  • 75g or 1/2 cup wheat flour (you can use all white if you’d like)
  • 30ml or 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 6g or 1 tsp salt
  • 8g or 2 tsp honey

Dough – Directions

  1. Proof yeast in warm water with honey for 10 minutes.  Add olive oil.
  2. Combine flour and salt, then mix in wet ingredients and combine into a loose dough.
  3. Knead on a floured surface for 10 minutes or until the dough passes the windowpane test.
  4. Form into a ball and let rise in a lightly oiled bowl covered with a tea towel for 30 minutes.
  5. Halve the dough and roll out onto a stone/lightly oiled pan.  Note: if your pizza dough always springs back and won’t roll out – let it rest for 5 minutes and try again, repeat as needed.  The gluten needs time to relax.

Pizza – Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough, rolled out
  • Enough olive oil to brush the crust’s face-up side
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 handful of good ricotta cheese (whey squeezed out)
  • 1/2 lb. shredded brick cheese (we used “brick” an italian pizza cheese with a lot of flavor but mozzarella works well, too).
  • 1 handful of chicken (shredded/sliced, baked/grilled)
  • 1 handful of artichoke hearts
  • Big pinch of oregano, italian, or pizza seasoning

Pizza – Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 500 (F).
  2. Brush out enough olive oil to lightly over the dough.
  3. Spread remaining ingredients evenly starting with garlic, then ricotta, chicken, artichokes, shredded cheese.
  4. Pop pizza in the oven, turn oven down to 400 (F) and bake for 15 minutes.
