frozen dough (thawed) for 2 pizzas or 2 prepared crusts

2 cups store-bought marinara sauce

2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

1 cup fresh basil, spinach, or other greens

8 ounces shredded mozzarella (2 cups)

6  tablespoons olive oil



1. Place a pizza stone, unglazed ceramic tiles, or a heavy cookie sheet on the oven rack. Heat oven to 400° degrees.

2. If starting with pizza dough, pat or pull each piece into a 12-inch circle.

3. Top each circle with sauce, then scatter the chicken, basil, and mozzarella over each. Drizzle with oil.

4. Sprinkle the pizza stone with the cornmeal.

5. Using the back of a cookie sheet, transfer the pizza to oven. (You may have to bake the pizzas one at a time, depending on the oven size.)

6. Bake 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crust is browned.
