Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 
  • Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat; then add the chicken and cook through. Add the flour; then stir in the lemon juice and chicken broth and 1 tbsp. of the basil until the sauce thickens.
  • Stretch out room temperature pizza dough with the oil until it fits your stone or sheet pan. 
  • Combine the ricotta cheese with 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese and place on top of the dough leaving a border around the edge for the crust. 
  • Place the chicken mixture on top of the cheese; then top with the remaining shredded cheese and chopped basil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the edges brown and the cheese is hot and bubbly.
