Broccoli Rabe & Chicken White Pizza
From EatingWell: January/February 2014
The bold flavors of garlic, crushed red pepper and lemon make up for the fact that this white chicken pizza recipe has less sodium than a typical pizza. Not a fan of bitter greens? Opt for broccolini or broccoli instead. To save time, look for prepared whole-wheat pizza dough at your supermarket, fresh or frozen, made without partially hydrogenated oils.
- 1 pound whole-wheat pizza dough
- 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
- 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced garlic
- 6 cups chopped broccoli rabe or 4 cups chopped broccolini or broccoli
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, plus more to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Position a rack in lowest position of oven; preheat to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.
- Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet; transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Bake until puffed and crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut chicken in half lengthwise and then crosswise into thin strips. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until just starting to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the chicken, broccoli rabe (or broccolini or broccoli), lemon zest, crushed red pepper and salt; cook, stirring, until the chicken is just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- When the crust is done, remove from the oven, flip it over and brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Using a slotted spoon (to help drain any excess liquid), transfer the chicken mixture to the crust and spread evenly. Combine ricotta and lemon juice and dollop all over the pizza.
- Return the pizza to the oven and bake until the crust is crispy on the bottom, 6 to 8 minutes more.
