Garlic Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Pizza of all kinds has become a favorite in my family. It is easy, quick and can be so fun adapting so many different kinds! One of our favorites is garlic chicken alfredo. You can use leftover chicken if you have it on hand for this and if you really get into it... make your own dough! This dough recipe is a "no failure". I got it from our friends the Hoyles and lets just say... They don't mess around when it comes to their pizza. Also, you can really add any toppings you like. The recipe below is what I always have on hand to do, but I have added many different things to this recipe such as mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes or mozzarella, onions (when Ryan isn't looking) or whatever else you like! It is all up to you!

For the dough:
1 3/4 Cups Hot Water
4 1/2 Cups Flour
1 tsp. Yeast
1/2 Cup oil
2 tsp Salt

Directions:*Mix all ingredients together into bowl.
*Place a towel over bowl and let rise for 2 hours

Cooking Directions:
*Heat oven to 55o degrees for 25 minutes
*Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick
*After rolling out dough place cornmeal on paddle, then place dough on the paddle. Add your sauce, cheese, and toppings. Easy enough!

For the pizza:

Alfredo Sauce (try this homemade one from
1 tsp. minced garlic
Salt and Pepper to dash
Fresh Basil4 cooked strips bacon
1 cup cooked chicken
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp olive oil
Italian Seasoning to dash

1. After dough is rolled out, spread olive oil, garlic and Italian Seasonings on dough. I like to bake my dough for about 2 minutes to instill these flavorings on the crust. Then take out and place toppings on.
2. Place alfredo sauce, chicken, bacon, dash of salt and pepper, and cheese all over pizza. I like to add cheese, then add basil, then add a little more cheese. Cook for 8-10 minutes and then serve.

It should look like this! Yum!
