- Add chopped veggies to frying pan, cook 5 minutes. Add garlic, salt and pepper, cook 2 minutes. Add wine, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and herbs. Bring to a simmer, and reduce sauce slightly.
- Add chicken to pan, turning to coat both sides with sauce. Cook for 15 minutes, until sauce is reduced and chicken is fully cooked (165°F).
- Turn off heat and remove chicken, set aside to cool, then chop and reserve 2 cups. Remove 1 cup of Cacciatore sauce form frying pan. Chop parsley and set a side.
- Preheat oven to 550°F with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven.
- Grate mozzarella cheese.
- Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough.
