As you probably know (at least if you’ve been here in the past), I love pizza. If my husband would let me, I’d eat it every day! For breakfast, lunch and dinner. I mean, come on, there are so many ways to prepare it, that you could eat it every day and never get sick of eating pizza.

As we move toward Summer and warmer weather, I’m going through the recipe ideas that I wrote down throughout the winter and updating my menu planner with more seasonally appropriate meals. Chicken Alfredo Pizza started as an idea that I had jotted down several months ago and just never found the time to try, but I won’t make that mistake again. In fact, this recipe is one that will be moved straight to the top of our family favorites. The kids loved it and I think I could forgo cheesecake for this pizza…well, maybe.
Okay, maybe not.
But, it is good…really good!
I can’t wait to try it again. Since taking the very first bite of this Chicken Alfredo Pizza, my head has been spinning with ideas for variations of the recipe. You could add broccoli, basil leaves, roasted red peppers, squash, mushrooms, spinach…the list goes on and on. If you’re in a rush, you could even use pre-packaged pizza dough, leftover chicken and jarred Alfredo sauce instead of making it from scratch. But, if you have time, make it from scratch…you’ll be glad you did.
Here’s the recipe -
Chicken Alfredo Pizza
- 1 prepared pizza dough
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 cups chicken breast, cooked and shredded
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place butter in a medium pot and heat on medium temperature.
Add the flour, garlic powder and black pepper to the melted butter. Whisk until smooth.
Pour chicken broth and milk into the butter and flour mixture. Whisk until smooth and no clumps remain. Continue heating on medium temperature until the liquid begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
Add cheddar and Parmesan cheeses to the cream mixture and remove from heat. Continue stirring until the cheeses melt.
Add shredded chicken to the cheese sauce. Return to heat and cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes on medium-low heat.
On a lightly floured surface, roll the pizza dough into your desired shape. Place on baking sheet.
Spoon Chicken Alfredo sauce over the prepared pizza dough. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Serve Chicken Alfredo Pizza as a stand alone dish or with your favorite salad to make a complete meal in minutes.
