By now, you may know that I love pizza. Not only do I serve it as an appetizer and use leftovers as toppings, but I make it when I'm in need of a quick pick-me-up. After a long day, there's nothing quite as comforting as a crisp crust oozing with melted cheese.
Assembling a pizza also allows me to get creative in the kitchen without having to waste a ton of time prepping ingredients. This simple recipe combines a crunchy dough with rotisserie chicken, goat cheese, rosemary, and Parmesan cheese.
It's a filling meal on its own, but for additional balance I'll enjoy it with mixed greens. To look at the recipe,
- Pizza dough
- Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing and drizzling
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
- Coarse salt
- 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
- 5 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
- ½ tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary (about 1 sprig)
- Invert a large baking sheet and place it on a rack in the lower third of the oven; preheat the oven to 500°.
- Invert a second baking sheet on a work surface and cover it with a sheet of parchment paper. Stretch the pizza dough to fit the parchment paper.
- Brush the dough generously with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with parmesan and salt. Scatter the chicken, goat cheese and rosemary on top.
- Slide the pizza and the parchment from the cool baking sheet to the hot baking sheet in the oven. Bake until the crust is golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with more olive oil and top with more parmesan. Cut into pieces.
