My favorite pizza of all-time is Spicy Chicken Alfredo Pizza – it’s absolutely perfect. The sauce has a spicy kick from the cayenne, the chicken is smoky from the grill and the cheese – well, who has to explain how awesome cheese is?! I first had this at a restaurant I used to work in – and once I re-created it at home – there was no looking back! I use the leftover Alfredo sauce from my Baked Ravioli Al Forno, as well as some leftover grilled chicken I was hiding in the fridge. Paired with my Super Fast Pizza Crust – perfection!
Spicy Chicken Alfredo Pizza
1/4 recipe fast pizza crust (recipe here – today I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 2 cups all-purpose white flour)
1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce (recipe here)
few dashes hot sauce
pinch of cayenne (you can leave this out if you don’t like the heat – or add more!)
1/4 – 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1 -2 ounces leftover grilled chicken breast
2 green onions, sliced
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Pat out pizza dough on a baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. I like to make an edge so the sauce stays in the middle, but you don’t have to. In a small bowl, mix Alfredo sauce, hot sauce and cayenne. Spread on pizza dough. Top with cheese, chicken and green onions. Bake for 7 – 10 minutes until crust is crisp and the cheese is bubbly. Enjoy! I serve mine with extra hot sauce.
I consider this a “free” meal because all of the ingredients (except the pizza crust) were leftovers. The pizza crust cost $.36 to make one batch (more if you are using whole wheat flour).
Do you have a standard pizza day in your house? If so, do you change what kind of pizza you make each week – or do you keep it the same? I’d love to hear your creative pizza ideas!
