For the dough

In a large mixing bowl, combine the water and sugar. 
2 Sprinkle yeast on the surface of the water and let rest for 5 minutes without stirring. Add olive oil and sea salt and stir with a fork.
3 Add 250 mL (1 cup) of the flour and stir with a fork until the flour is fully incorporated and the mixture becomes sticky. 
4 Add an additional 125 mL (½ cup) of the flour and knead to incorporate. 
5 Transfer the dough to a work surface floured with the remaining 60 mL (¼ cup) of flour. Knead for 5-7 minutes, or until the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth and supple. 
Transfer the dough to a large, oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. 
7 Let rest for 90 minutes at room temperature.

For the pizza

1 Preheat the oven to 230 oC (450 oF). Place the rack at the top of the oven.
2 Prepare the garlic butter by melting the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, then adding all the other ingredients. Set aside.
3 Prepare the Alfredo sauce. Start by melting the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add the flour, whisking to avoid lumps. Slowly add the cream and milk, whisking continuously for 2 minutes until the mixture becomes smooth and thick. Incorporate the salt, pepper and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
4 Divide the pizza dough into two balls. Roll each ball into a disc of about 40 cm (16 in) in diameter, then transfer to a pizza pan.
5 Spread the garlic butter onto each disc, then pour on about 250 mL (1 cup) of sauce, or to taste.
6 Top with chicken, herbs, Mozzarella cheese, pancetta, pepper, onions and tomatoes.
7 Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is fully golden.
8 Top with a few leaves of arugula just before serving.
9 Repeat for the second pizza.
  Note: For a quick and easy way to prepare this recipe, use store-bought pizza dough.
