Chicken Broccoli Pizza

1 package (16 ounces) pizza dough, brought to room temperature
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Toppings1/3 pound broccoli (1/3 head)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves cracked garlic
1/2 pound chicken breast, cut into strips as for stir fry
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
10 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained and sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
12 to 15 leaves fresh basil, torn or stacked and thinly sliced

Heat oven to 500°F.

For crust: On 12-inch nonstick pizza pan, stretch out dough and form pizza crust. Drizzle olive oil on crust; with pastry brush, spread it over the dough to the edges. Sprinkle dough with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

For toppings: In a small covered saucepan, bring 2 inches water to a boil. Separate broccoli tops into florets, discarding lower stalks or reserving for soup. Salt water and add broccoli florets. Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain broccoli; cool slightly, then chop into small pieces.
