Chicken Bacon Alfredo Pizza

I mentioned this pizza in my Cheese Stick Recipe post and thought that I should show you my pizza too.

What you'll need:
  • Pizza Dough (I HIGHLY reccommend this Breadstick dough from Our Best Bites)
  • Garlic Bread Seasoning (also from Our Best Bites)
  • 1/2 c butter or margarine
  • Alfredo Sauce, approx 1/8 - 1/4 cup
  • Bacon Pieces (depending on how much you like - I LOVE bacon)
  • About 1 cup cubed/diced/shredded Chicken (cooked and seasoned to your preference) (I'm using canned chicken this time)
  • 5-6oz of shredded Mozarella Cheese
  • Corn Meal or Corn Grits (if using a pizza stone - optional)
  • Any additional toppings - tomatoes, onions, etc
  1. Follow the recipe here but stop before you cut and twist the dough into breadsticks. Instead, spread some corn meal/grits onto a pizza stone or pan and roll out the dough. Let it rise for a half hour or so. (Here is where I use the Corn Meal. Spread a bit onto your pizza stone before rolling the dough onto the stone. Technically you're supposed to preheat your stone and then put your dough on. I did that the first time I used my stone, but it was such a pain in the butt to try and move the dough. Now I just put down some Corn Meal and roll the dough straight onto the pizza stone without preheating it. The Corn Meal keeps the dough from sticking too much. Flour does NOT work so well to keep the dough from sticking. I may have tried that, very unsuccessfully.)
  2. Mix 1 1/2 TBSP Garlic Bread Sesoning and 1/2 c butter or margarine together. Heat in microwave until melted.
  3. After the dough has risen, spread the butter mixture onto the dough, covering completely.
  4. Spread the Alfredo sauce on top of the butter, making sure to leave an inch or so around the edge for a crust. I find I like the pizza better if I don't use quite as much sauce. I think I use maybe 1/4 cup total.
  5. Sprinkle the chicken, bacon and any other toppings (I used tomatoes) on after the sauce.
  6. Top with mozzarella cheese and slide that puppy into the oven. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes (or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and coat the crust again with the garlic butter mixture. Cut, serve, and enjoy!

We like to dip this in either Alfredo sauce or the remainder of the garlic butter mixture. That might sound weird, but it's no different than dipping in in the garlic butter from Papa Johns. The homemade mixture is just better (trust me, I've tried them both).

Doesn't this just look heavenly!?

The garlic butter is really what makes this pizza sooo good. The first time I made this pizza, I didn't use the garlic butter and the pizza was okay. The next time I made it, I got the crazy idea to spread the garlic butter on first and Oh.M.Gee!!! Adding the garlic butter took this pizza to a whole new level. Yum!

  1. I LOVE chicken alfredo pizza. When we do homemade pizzas, I always make one of these for me. I don't like red sauce (weird, I know) and this is the perfect solution! This sounds so delicious. Maybe we'll have a pizza night tonight.

    Came over from Shabby Nest and keep finding more cool stuff to click on! If you'd like to share anything at my link party this weekend, I'd love to have you.
