Broccoli Rabe & Chicken White Pizza

Why order a Pizza when you can make this amazing Pizza at home?!

Bold flavors of garlic…crushed red pepper… lemon make this a family favorite 😉

We’ve also used cooked sliced Italian Sausage in place of the Chicken…YUM!!

  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1/2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper… plus more to taste  😉
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup Ricotta
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon Juice


  • Heat oven to 425 degrees
  •  Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray…or heat Pizza Stone
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of baking sheet or pizza stone.. transfer dough
  • Bake until crust is puffed and bottom is crisped…about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Cut Chicken in half lengthwise and then crosswise into thin strips.
  • Heat 3 tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Garlic.. cook.. stirring.. until just starting to brown

  • When crust is done.. remove from oven.. flip over.. brush with remaining 1 tbsp. Oil.
  • Combine Ricotta and Lemon juice in a small bowl….spread over pizza crust.
  • Using a slotted spoon (to help drain any excess liquid).. spread Chicken mixture evenly over crust.
  • Return Pizza to the oven… bake until crust is crispy on the bottom about 6 – 8 minutes.

** If you choose to use Sausage…cook Broccoli Rabe….place on top of Ricotta layer….place sliced cooked Sausage atop Broccoli Rabe 🙂 **
