Forget delivery! Serve homemade Chicken Pizza instead. Chicken, sweet Italian sausage, cremini mushrooms, fontina cheese, and sliced red bell pepper are just a few of the ingredients we used to dress this dish up.

How to Make It

Step 1

Let dough rest, covered, at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, chicken, and sausage; sauté 5 minutes. Remove mixture from pan. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl. Add onion, mushrooms, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Step 4

Punch dough down. Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal. Roll dough out to a 14-inch circle on baking sheet. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with 2 ounces cheese. Arrange chicken mixture, vegetable mixture, and bell pepper over cheese, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Top with remaining cheese and crushed red pepper. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until golden. Sprinkle with herbs. Cut into slices.

Not a review but a comment. Cooking Light, please provide nutritional data (calories) for your recipes. Sometimes, they do not seem so "light". Thanks

I really enjoyed this pizza from the January 2012 issue of Cooking Light. I made it just as the recipe said even though I wasn't at all sure that there would be enough cheese. Happily, that fear was unfounded. I will definitely make this again. The only thing I will do differently in the future is to spice the chicken more when I cook it, probably with cumin and chili powder, because the chicken it rather bland.

I agree with the previous reviewer. This was an outstanding pizza but I added sauce as well. I also skipped the chicken and added extra turkey sausage. Delish!

Really loved this chicken pizza recipe! A great combination of ingredients. I tweaked it by adding some homemade tomato sauce because I don't really believe in pizza without sauce.
