Ingredients

  • 12 sheets phyllo dough (12″x17″)
  • 34 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups rotisserie or roasted chicken, shredded
  • 2 cups small on-the-vine or grape tomatoes, washed, dried, sliced
  • 1 cup green bell peppers, washed, dried, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onions, chopped
  • 1/3 cup Kalamata olives, pitted, chopped
  • 1/3 cup green olives, pitted, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, washed, dried, stems removed
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • crushed red pepper, optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Prepare toppings as indicated in the ingredient section above. Set each topping aside separately.
  3. Melt butter and combine with olive oil; brush a large baking sheet with the oil-butter mixture.
  4. Assemble phyllo sheets in baking dish. Lay first sheet down and brush with the oil-butter mixture. Repeat with next five sheets.
  5. Now add half of the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  6. Continue laying phyllo sheets one-at-a-time repeating the process and brushing each sheet with the oil-butter mixture.
  7. Coat the top sheet with the oil-butter mixture and add the second half of the shredded mozzarella.
  8. Now, evenly spread pizza toppings: chicken, tomato (pet dry with napkin), green pepper, onion, and olives (hold the cilantro and mint leaves for later). Sprinkle with a little salt and a lot of black pepper, and brush the veggies with a little of the oil-butter.
  9. Cut pizza carefully into three-inch squares, and place in the 375F oven for 20 minutes or until phyllo dough turns golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven and top evenly with the fresh cilantro, mint leaves and crushed red pepper, if using.
