I used to get this Pizza while I was in high school many many many maaaaany years ago. I have never had pizza without a red tomato sauce. So, I decided to change it up for once and try this strange looking creamy white sauce pizza. Walked up to the counter money already in hand and pointed to the slice I wanted. I always choose my own slice and it’s usually the “biggest slice.” I anxiously bit into the pizza knowing I wouldn’t like it and to my surprise, it was tasty and delicious. I was hooked! I would buy a slice at least once a week for lunch break at my part-time job. When high school was over I moved and could not find this pizza anywhere. Well actually I did find it in one pizza place however, it did not taste like my old high school pizza shop. I was scrolling the internet for tips on how to make pizza and this recipe showed up right on iPhone!! In all my happy chicken Alfredo glory, I immediately went to a pizza shop, purchased some dough then to the grocery store for the ingredient and the rest is history. This came out amazing and it was really easy to make. Try it for yourself and let me know how it turned out for you. I am going to do a video on this soon.
Chicken Alfredo Pizza
The yummiest decadent homemade pizza you will ever make!
• 1 (3/4 pound) boneless skinless chicken breast
• Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
• 1 cup heavy cream
• 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
• 1 (16-ounce) ball pizza dough, store-bought
• 2 cups baby spinach, well washed and dried
• 1 cup grape tomatoes, red and yellow
• 1 cup grated mozzarella
• Olive oil, for brushing crust
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Adjust racks to the middle of the oven. Put pizza stone in the oven to preheat while you begin the sauce.
Preheat a grill pan over medium heat.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Put the chicken on the grill pan and grill until cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and dice. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant. Add the flour and cook until light blonde in color. Whisk in the cream, reduce the heat to low, and let simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in Parmesan and season lightly with salt and pepper, to taste.
Flour your work surface and roll the pizza dough into a 13-inch diameter. Carefully remove the pizza stone from the oven and put the dough on top. Ladle the sauce to cover the bottom of the pizza. Evenly top with the baby spinach, grape tomatoes, grilled chicken and the mozzarella. Brush the edge of the crust with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake the pizza until crisp and golden, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately top with another handful of spinach. Slice and serve.
With a recipe like this I always add a little more than what the recipe calls for on certain ingredients. For instance this is pizza and we all love cheese on our pizza. I always add more parmesan cheese, sometimes double it and add more cream to even out the parmesan cheese.
