Ingredients

FOR THE PIZZA CRUST:

  • cups warm water around 110 degrees
  • 2 packets of active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or regular olive oil
  • 4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus more for kneading
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

FOR THE BRUSCHETTA:

  • 6 roma tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup sliced fresh basil sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 pinches kosher salt or to taste
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes or more to taste

FOR THE PIZZA:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons garlic infused olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose season salt
  • 1/2 red onion sliced thin
  • 3 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan

Instructions

MAKE THE PIZZA DOUGH:

  • Combine the honey, STAR Basil Oil and yeast in the bowl of your mixer. Pour in the warm {100-110 degrees} and stir. Wait about 10 minutes for the yeast to proof and foam up.
  • Next add the flour and salt. Mix on low speed until a smooth dough forms. Knead the dough by hand on a lightly floured surface until no longer tacky.
  • Place dough in a bowl that's been lightly oiled with more of the STAR basil oil, turn to coat and cover with a tea towel for 30-40 minutes
  • After the dough has risen, punch it down and form into 6 to 8 personal size pizzas.

MAKE THE BRUSCHETTA:

  • Combine the chopped roma tomatoes with the parsley, basil, garlic, STAR basil oil, balsamic vinegar, a pinch or two of red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Toss together and refrigerate until ready to use.

MAKE THE PIZZA:

  • Toss the chicken breasts in the STAR Garlic Grilling Oil and seasoning salt. Place on a preheated grill (medium-high heat) and grill 6-8 minutes a side or until fully cooked. Let cool and then sliced into strips.
  • Stretch the dough out into 6 or 8 personal sized pizzas. Place two pizzas at a time on an inverted baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Top each pizza with sliced grilled chicken, red onion and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated 400° oven for 12-16 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden brown.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before slicing and topping with a few spoonfuls of the tomato basil bruschetta.
