Instructions

For the Dough

  • Easiest pizza dough recipe can be found here
  • When the dough is on it's final rise, preheat the oven to 450°F

For the Toppings

  • Toss the diced and seeded tomatoes, with salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder. Set aside.
  • In a small pot add a ½ cup - 1 cup of vegetable oil. Allow the oil to get hot - you'll know it's ready when you sprinkle a bit of flour into the pot and it begins to sizzle.
  • Clean your chicken tenders, pat them dry with paper towel. Add them to a ziplock bag and toss with salt and pepper. Add a cup or more of flour to the ziplock bag. Close the bag and toss the chicken around, making sure the flour is coats the chicken well.
  • Add the flour coated chicken to the pot of oil. Do not overcrowd the pot. Let the chicken fry until it's golden brown. When done, place the cooked chicken on a plate lined paper towel to catch the access oil. When the chicken has cooled, dice it into small pieces.
  • Spread the broccoli florets, the diced tomato, and chicken around your dough, leaving the edges of the pizza uncovered (this is the crust!).
  • Top with your desired amount of mozzarella cheese and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the pizza is golden.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes and serve.
