  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Roll out dough to fit either your pizza stone or out on a baking sheet, curling edges, if you like, to make the crust.
  • With a spoon, add a very thin layer of sauce on the dough and put in the oven to bake for 15 minutes or until dough is almost fully cooked.
  • Remove from oven, place chicken pieces and tomatoes and cover with more sauce. (There will be extra sauce left).
