Chicken,Smoked Mozzarella Flatbread{h}.jpg

Using rotisserie chicken in this recipe is a great timesaver.

 Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 12 to 15 minutes
Servings: 8


  • 1 ball refrigerated pizza dough

  • 2 cups shredded smoked mozzarella cheese

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped, cooked chicken

  • 1/4 of a medium red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup Mariani Whole Natural Almonds, coarsely chopped

  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 3 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs

  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning blend or dried basil

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • Snipped fresh basil (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 475°F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Divide dough into 2 pieces and roll each as thinly as possible on a lightly floured board. (If dough is too elastic, let it rest for a few minutes and roll when it’s relaxed a bit.) Transfer to baking sheets and pull edges out lightly to stretch even thinner.

  3. Top with mozzarella, chicken and onion.

  4. Stir together almonds, Parmesan, breadcrumbs and seasonings in a medium bowl and sprinkle evenly over flatbreads.

  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. Top with fresh basil, if desired.
