Ingredients

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1-2 teaspoons cornmeal for sprinkling
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 2/3 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F with pizza stone, if using. Sprinkle cornmeal over baker's peel or parchment.
  • Roll pizza dough into a 14 inch circle, place on prepared baker's peel, and brush the edge with olive oil.
  • Add butter to a small saucepan and melt over medium heat. Once melted, add the garlic and cook until just fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Whisk in the flour and pepper and cook until golden. Continue whisking and slowly pour in the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan, salt, and pepper.
  • Spread about 1/2 cup sauce over prepared pizza dough, enough for a thin layer. Sprinkle chicken and onions over the pizza. Cover with mozzarella.
  • Transfer the pizza to pizza stone using baker's peel or parchment. Bake until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool about 5 minutes before topping with fresh herbs and slicing. Serve with remaining white sauce.
