This Chicken Alfredo Pizza recipe is my favorite way to use up leftover Alfredo Sauce, but I have no problem whipping up a batch of Alfredo sauce just to make this pizza.
I used my Slightly Healthier Gluten Free Garlic and Herb Pizza Dough recipe to make the crust for this pizza. Use your favorite pizza dough recipe, but add 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon rosemary, and 1 teaspoon basil when mixing the dry ingredients to create an especially flavorful pizza.
Chicken Alfredo Pizza Recipe with Broccoli
enough pizza dough for 1 large pizza
Alfredo Sauce (recipe below)
1/2 cup cooked chicken, diced
1 cup broccoli, finely chopped (asparagus would also be good)
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
Prepare pizza dough according to the recipe directions, but don’t forget to add garlic powder, rosemary, and basil when mixing the dough.
While the pizza crust is baking, I make the Alfredo sauce and prepare the other ingredients.
After removing pizza crust from oven top with Alfredo sauce and chicken:
Place broccoli and onions over chicken:
Top with cheese:
Place pizza back in the oven on a middle rack. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 –10 minutes or until cheese is melted and just begins to turn brown.
Alfredo Sauce Recipe
This is the same Alfredo Sauce Recipe that I used in Pasta Alfredo with Asparagus, but I included it here to make it more convenient should you choose to try this recipe.
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch (or 2 T. flour)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 cup Mozzarella cheese (or 3/4 cups mozzarella and 1/4 cup parmesan)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried)
dash of pepper
Melt butter in a medium sauce pot. Once the butter is melted add cornstarch. Stir until smooth. Cook over a medium-high flame until the mixture is smooth and bubbly, stirring constantly.
Add milk slowly, stirring until well blended. Add broth, cheese, garlic powder, parsley and pepper. Stir over a medium flame, until cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
Thoughts on Making Pizza
For a long time, I was afraid of making my own pizza dough. I didn’t think I could make it look pretty – and I can’t. I have still never made a perfectly round pizza, the closest I have come is a fat oval (my daughter said it would be more politically correct to say a wide oval). But you know what? Ugly homemade pizza tastes way better than a perfectly formed packaged or delivery pizza. It is also healthier and a lot less expensive. As with most homemade food, you get twice the flavor, for half the price.

How funny. I was just telling Chris last night I wanted to find a chicken alfredo pizza recipe. Except I want to use spinach in it. Thanks a bunch. Now I am off to print it and go grocery shopping.
Yeah, round pizza is so over rated! I get close, but then we eat an odd shaped pizza-pie and it tastes just fine! I will have to try your alfredo pizza, it sounds delicious!
