GOURMET GARLIC CHICKEN PIZZA
Papa Murphy's Copycat Recipe
Makes One 16 inch Pizza
1 cup warm water (115 degrees)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all purpose flour or bread flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2/3 cup ranch dressing
1/2 to 1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 grilled chicken breast, sliced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup packed coarsely slice green onion tops
In a medium mixing bowl, combine water, sugar, and salt. Add flour and yeast all at once, and stir until a soft dough forms. Add additional flour if needed, and knead gently for 5-10 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Butter or grease a 16-inch round pizza pan. Using your buttery hands, lift the soft, sticky dough onto the pizza pan and gently spread to the edges.
In a 1 cup measuring cup, mix the ranch dressing and minced garlic. Use a spoon to spread the sauce mixture over the crust. In a medium mixing bowl, toss together the mozzarella, cheddar, and Parmesan cheeses. Spread about half of the cheese mixture over the sauce. Evenly spread the chicken, tomatoes, and green onions over the pizza. Top with the remaining cheese.
Bake pizza in a preheated 425 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Check pizza after 10 minutes, and continue to check every few minutes until top is browned and cheese is bubbly. Remove pizza from oven, allow to cool slightly, and slice.
