Garlic White Pizza W/ Chicken and Ricotta
I started with a homemade crust. Butter, olive oil and fresh minced garlic on the crust..followed by spices, Parmesan cheese, dollops of seasoned ricotta cheese, seasoned chicken, ending with mozzarella cheese and more seasonings.
You can make this as garlicky as you want. I added some garlic powder also and red hot pepper flakes.
I made two. One is with veggies the other without. They are delicious either way!
I favor this pizza over traditional
I hope you try it..

PIZZA INGREDIENTS ( FOR 1 PIZZA, DOUBLE FOR TWO)
In a bowl, measure 2 cups warm water ( not hot) 110 - 115 F. Dissolve the yeast in water and add the sugar. Set aside.
I use my kitchenaid mixer with dough hook. If you don't have, mix in a large bowl by hand.
Put the flour, oil and salt in the bowl, attach dough hook, blend the flour, salt and oil; add the yeast water, mix until forms a ball.
