Preparing the dough

  1. Remove the dough from the fridge and leave to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  2. Knead the dough again for 3 minutes. Divide into two equal parts and shape into balls.
  3. Place the dough on a generously floured work surface, cover with plastic wrap or a damp cloth and leave to rise at room temperature for about 45 minutes.
  4. Place each ball of dough on a generously floured work surface and, using your fingers, stretch it first in all directions, then into a round or square shape, as you wish. Transfer the dough to an oiled baking tray.

Assembling the pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 500 °F.
  2. Place the ricotta, lemon zest and juice in a bowl, followed by the chopped basil. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Spread the ricotta mixture over the dough, then top with the sliced tomato, roasted peppers, shredded chicken, other toppings of your choice and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  5. Cut the pizza and serve.
