Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 C). If you’re using a pizza stone, be sure to put it in the oven before you turn on the heat. Click here for a 14 inch pizza stone with serving rack.

 

For the Dough:

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water (110 degrees F, 43.33 degrees C). The temperature is right when it just barely feels warm to your fingers. Water that is too hot will kill the yeast.

 

Let the yeast mixture stand for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.

 

Add the flour, olive oil and salt and stir with a wooden spoon, or mix in a stand mixer, until a soft dough forms.

 

If the dough is too wet mix in additional flour one tablespoon at a time until it is no longer sticky. If it’s too dry, mix in additional water one tablespoon at a time.

 

On a clean floured surface, using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a circle, about 12 inches wide. Click here for a non-stick rolling pin.

 

Dust the pizza pan or pizza stone with cornmeal. Place the dough over the cornmeal.

For the Sauce:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayo, white vinegar, black pepper, mustard, salt, sugar, garlic cloves, paprika, and cumin. Spread the sauce in an even layer over the dough.

For the Topping:

Sprinkle the cubed chicken with salt and pepper, and then cook it about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

 

Add the green pepper, red pepper, and onion. Continue to cook and stir about 5 minutes. Drain the liquid from the mixture in a colander.

 

Spread the chicken and veggie mixture on the pizza over the white sauce.
