Pizza Night Part 2

Pizza Night ReDo

As I said last Pizza night, we love pizza and we love creating new toppings all the time. I’m a HUGE fan of chicken so when I do my creating that is usually my main ingredient. I always have chicken on hand and that is really how this recipe came about. The guys wanted pizza but it takes two pizzas to feed us. I needed a second kind of pizza so my chicken alfredo was created.  After searching the fridge for some type of topping to go with the chicken, I came across a fourth of a jar of alfredo sauce. Ten I saw the Parmesan cheese. Perfect.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Ingredients

  • Pizza crust (I use the ones in the cold section at the store, usually found with the biscuits)
  • Alfredo sauce, about a fourth of a can
  • 2 chicken breasts (shredded or chunked, depending on your preference)
  • Finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1/8 cup of water
  • Oregano

Directions:

  • Preheat oven as directed by instructions on pizza crust package, usually 425 degrees.
  • Unroll dough and place on pizza pan. Stretch dough to desired thickness, making sure there are no holes were the dough is stretched. You don’t want your sauce leaking out everywhere.
  • Once you have the dough at its desired thickness, open your alfredo sauce. I prefer to thin my sauce out a bit. It makes it easier to spread and doesn’t make the crust soggy. To thin out sauce, pour a fourth of the jar into a bowl. Add about an eighth of a cup of water to sauce. Wisk until combined well.
  • Spread sauce over crust until you have a thin layer covering. Don’t make it too tick. If you have sauce left over, set it to the side. We will use it in a minute.
  • Sprinkle oregano evenly over sauce. 
  • Spread chicken evenly over the crust.
  • Top with Mozzarella cheese. Now add Parmesan cheese. (this is a more “to taste” measurement)
  • If you had any sauce left, add it now.
  • Place pizza in oven for about 10 minutes or as directed by crust directions.

Remove from oven when crust is desired crispiness. Slice and enjoy!

    1. I usually let my son make his own. Sometimes he gets a little tooooo creative (cold alfredo sauce on his hamburger) for my taste so I always have to watch him to make sure it is something we will all eat 🙂

  1. Hey Ellen,

  2. hahaha, I love how you (well, not only you, its pretty common abroad) call this cheese “mozzarella”, I mean… come on, shouldnt it look different? 😀

    Anyway… This looks yummy!

    1. Does it go by a different name elsewhere that I am unaware? I’m not sure hip on other cultures and I am not a huge cheese fan 🙂

  3. That pizza looks so tasty and tempting. My daughter loves pizza , so this one is a must try. I am pretty sure that my daughter love this one.
