Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Chicken Alfredo Pizza is a pizza version of the creamy pasta dish and it has so much flavor. For the first level of flavor, the pizza dough is coated with a garlic butter. Next comes a rich and creamy sauce flavored with Romano cheese (parmesan cheese could be used instead).

The toppings include diced chicken, baby spinach, green onion, bacon, and of coarse mozzarella cheese.

For the pizza dough, you can use a premade crust such as Boboli, buy pizza dough from the grocery store or favorite pizza restaurant, or make your own.

If you make your own, I love Craftsy’s Perfect Pizza at Home . It’s a totally free online class taught by Peter Reinhart, the author of American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza. You can watch it as many times as you like and the recipes and instructions are excellent. It will take your pizza making skills to new heights.

 

I make this pizza vegetarian for my daughter by leaving out the chicken and bacon and using some steamed broccoli instead. She loves it!

CHICKEN ALFREDO PIZZA RECIPE TIPS:

  • The pizza dough will be much easier to stretch or roll out if it is at room temperature. Remove it from the refrigerator an hour or two in advance. Be sure to keep it covered well so that it does not dry out.
  • A pizza stone is recommended to get a crispy crust. You want the pizza stone to preheat at least 15 minutes.

  1. This is a delicious recipe! I made a couple changes. I used Rhodes frozen bread dough. 1 loaf made a bigger pizza than the 10″ rounds. So I did not divide the ingredients. We enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

      Glad you enjoyed the recipe Sharon. I have never tried Rhodes bread dough to make pizza. Will have to try that soon!

    I just said to my boyfriend “mmm, look at that pizza” as I was pointing to a photo of this pizza! This looks beyond amazing, Christin! Definitely trying this pizza soon. I’ve been making pizza so much at home lately and another great recipe to try is a must!

    I used to think that chicken on pizza is weird and unappetizing. Then I moved to Kenya where chicken was the topping of choice. Needless to say, I caved in and gave it a try. And you know what? I finally realized that I was missing pizza’s best kept secret. Now I don’t hesitate to order chicken on my pizza. And this pizza. . . with all it’s cluck- cluckediness looks so tasty (as do all your other chicken pizzas. . .still fantasizing about the Thai chicken pizza and wishing it were in my hand right now).
