I make homemade pizza once a week for dinner – it’s quick, easy, tastes so much better than store bought, and my kids love it! This chicken Alfredo pizza features a creamy white sauce base with chunks of chicken, crispy bacon and a sprinkling of fresh tomatoes and parsley. Pizza night will never be boring again!
How do you make chicken alfredo pizza?
This recipe starts with pre-made pizza dough. If you have the time, you can make your own dough, but I often just buy a ball or can of dough from the grocery store. The dough is topped with a layer of Alfredo sauce, plenty of shredded cheese, cooked chicken and bacon. After the pizza comes out of the oven, the finishing touch is diced tomatoes and parsley. Cut your pizza into slices, serve and enjoy!
Tips for chicken alfredo pizza
- You can use any type of cooked chicken you have on hand, such as cubed roasted chicken, shredded chicken, or even store bought rotisserie chicken.
- I prefer to use freshly grated mozzarella cheese for my pizza. The pre-shredded cheese that comes in a bag at the grocery store often contains anti caking agents and doesn’t melt as well as freshly shredded cheese.
- I use refrigerated pre-made Alfredo sauce as I think it has a fresher flavor than the jarred variety.
- To reheat any leftover pizza, cook it in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes or until the crust is crispy.
Alfredo pizza variations
You can add all different types of toppings to your pizza to customize it to your tastes.
- Protein: Instead of chicken, try diced ham or shrimp.
- Vegetables: Try adding sauteed mushrooms, cooked spinach, olives or marinated artichokes.
- Cheese: Instead of mozzarella cheese, try a blend of cheeses such as fontina, asiago, parmesan and white cheddar.
What temperature do you cook homemade pizza?
When it comes to pizza, the hotter the oven, the better. A super hot oven will help to crisp up the crust and turn the cheese golden brown. I cook my pizza at 450 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until the crust is deep golden brown and the cheesy is bubbly.
You simply cannot go wrong with this pizza – if you love chicken Alfredo, you’ll be sure to love this fun and unexpected recipe.
