Servings 4


  • 1 recipe prepared pizza dough such as my Sam Adams Beer Pizza Dough
  • ½ Tbs + 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 cup sliced white button mushrooms
  • 1 cups cubed ham
  • 1 cups fried chicken fingers such as those available at many grocery store deli sections, sliced into 1/2-in slices
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup raspberry preserves with no seeds
  • 2 Tbs water
  • powder sugar


  • Heat the oven to 450°F with the pizza stone in the oven to heat as well. Heat an additional 10-15 minutes to ensure the stone is thoroughly heated.
  • In a small bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs and the 1/2 tsp olive oil.
  • Roll out the pizza dough. Transfer onto the preheated pizza stone. Brush with remaining olive oil. Layer the toppings: mushrooms, ham, chicken, both cheeses, and panko-olive oil crumbs. Bake at 450°F for 10-15 minutes until crust is golden.
  • While pizza is cooking, prepare the raspberry sauce. In a small saucepan, heat the preserves to melt, adding a little water to thin it out.
  • Serve the pizza dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled with raspberry sauce.
