Arrange triangles with wide ends slightly overlapping, in a circle on a large pizza stone with wide ends 4 inches from the edge of the stone and points extending off of the edge of the stone. using a small rolling pin, roll the wide ends of dough toward the center of the stone to create a 5 inch opening in the center. Spoon chicken mixture evenly over dough around the circle. Bring points of the triangles up over the filling and tuck under the dough at the center to form a ring. The filling will show. Sprinking the remaining Parmesan and parsley over the ring.

I was totally going to make this a couple weeks ago, but ended up doing Katherine's lemon pasta. It's nice to see it in a picture. I still need to try it out.
