Effortless Alfredo Pizza Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's a lighter, scrumptious twist for pizza night. It makes good use of convenience items and keeps everyone's taste buds excited with help from nutty-flavored fontina cheese and crushed red pepper flakes. —Brittney House, Lockport, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2014

I made one of these for our pizza and salad supper on Christmas Eve. It was easy to make, and we enjoyed it. I used a whole wheat pizza crust and increased the garlic. Thank you Brittney House! I will make this deliciious recipe again!

Didn't have frozen spinach so I used fresh spinach instead. Won't use the red pepper flakes next time, not for me and my daughter. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms. And, I spread minced garlic on the crust before anything else. It was great! Definitely plan to make this when my husband's home again, with his favorite toppings!

For sdyeag: Boboli is a brand of pre-baked pizza crust found in most grocery stores. Look in the aisle where pizza sauce or boxed pizza kits are stocked. The Boboli products are in packages hung from hooks (at least in every store where I have found them.) I live in the mid-west and have bought them at small grocers, regional chains and at Kroger, Meijer, and Giant Eagle.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 15, 2013

I have never seen a recipe that called for a prebaked pizza crust. Are these purchased in a package on the shelf or freezer? Or, did they mean a homemade crust that had just been baked earlier? Can someone answer this question?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2010

Rubbing the crust with cut garlic is somewhat time consuming and then the garlic would have to be saved for another use. It would be much easier to lightly sprinkle the crust with 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of garlic powder instead or add it to the sauce!
