This pizza is proof of the versatility of the dough from Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day. It’s the same dough we used for the scallion flatbread – not just the same recipe, but from the exact batch. I pulled off a hunk, shaped it into a ball, and rolled it out flat for pizza.
While I was rolling the dough and cutting fresh mozzarella into slices, Larry prepared the topping – already cooked chicken that we had shredded into chunks, and BBQ sauce. Mix together. That’s it. He sliced up some scallions, I tore up a few leaves of basil. We had tomato sauce already made up, but if we didn’t I would have just used canned crushed tomatoes.
Our pizza was ready to go into the oven way before the oven was preheated. I had time to whip up a batch of cookie dough while I was waiting. And then eight minutes in the oven, we had dinner. Delicious.
