one 12-inch pizza


1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon white pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
2 hot sausage links
1 pound pizza dough
All-purpose flour, for dusting
Cornmeal, for dusting
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup sliced pepperoni
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
8 fresh basil leaves, torn


Put a pizza stone or upside-down baking sheet in the oven; preheat to 500 degrees F.

Make the chicken: Combine the salt, cayenne, white pepper, garlic powder, black pepper, cumin and dried basil in a bowl. Brush the chicken with olive oil, then rub with the spices. Heat a grill pan to medium high; grill the chicken until cooked through, about 7 minutes per side. Grill the sausage, turning, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool, then dice the chicken and crumble the sausage.

Stretch the pizza dough on a floured surface into a 12-inch round. Put on a cornmeal-dusted pizza peel or upside-down baking sheet; slide the dough onto the hot pizza stone or baking sheet and cook 7 minutes.

Slide the crust back onto the peel. Spread with the pizza sauce, then top with 1/2 cup mozzarella, the chicken, pepperoni and sausage. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella and the parmesan. Return the pizza to the oven and bake until bubbly, about 7 more minutes. Top with the fresh basil.
