  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken in the butter until no longer pink and the juices run clear, 7 to 10 minutes; remove from heat and set aside.

  • Combine the ricotta cheese, 1 tablespoon butter, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 1 minute; stir to combine. Spread the mixture over the pizza crust. Scatter the mozzarella cheese evenly over the pizza. Arrange the cooked chicken, broccoli, and mushrooms evenly on top of the pizza.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.

The ricotta sauce is fabulous! I went with another reviewer and added red sauce underneath. Before cooking the chicken I shook on some garlic powder Italian seasonining and Spike spice blend. I sauteed fresh sliced mushrooms and diced onions with a crushed clove of garlic. Two crushed cloves in the ricotta sauce and voila - lots of flavor! I left out the broccoli b/c I didn't have any but will add that next time. DH says it's the best pizza I've made AND that it was better than our go-to pizza place. High praise - thank you so much!

Easy to make but we thought it had a bland flavor. Perhaps it was because I used fat-free ricotta but overall I thought this could use more seasoning although I'm not sure what I'd add. I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder and low fat Fleishman's instead of real butter. I also use a homemade pizza crust instead of packaged. The white sauce mixed easily and made more than enough to spread on the crust but the end result lacked flavor. Read More

yummy and quick:-) used refrigerated pillsbury pizza dough brushed with olive oil and prebaked for 5 min to keep crust from getting soggy. baked the chicken and used a half package of frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed) instead of broccoli. the ricotta cheese sauce was great and it all turned out delicious!

Very good recipe. You can mix the ricotta cheese/butter with just about any herb or spice. I used a blend of garlic powder green peppercorns shallots marjoram and thyme. I also used fresh mozzarella. Use a pizza rack to avoid the crust getting soggy (the broccoli adds a bit of moisture when it thaws). Excellent recipe for a lovely weekday dinner. Read More

This is fast and tastes great. I left out the butter and used cooked shrimp and parm cheese for toppings. Two thumbs up! Read More

Since I cannot eat broccoli (despite my love for it) I replaced it with sliced onion and bell peppers (green red and yellow). It made the pizza much more colorful and tasty. This is a fantastic recipe as long as you have a really good pizza crust. Read More

This was easy and very good. I grilled the chicken breast which made it even better. Also I used fresh garlic instead of powder and added some fresh herbs. I will definately make this again. Thanks! Read More

This is really good and very rich. I probably doubled or even tripled the broccoli but I love broccoli! Read More
