Homemade Chicken Alfredo Pizzas Recipe
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
- 1 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 cups 2% milk
- 3 cups cubed cooked chicken breasts
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 2 cups chopped fresh baby spinach
- 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2-1/2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
- 2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
- 3. Sprinkle cornmeal over two 12-in. pizza pans coated with cooking spray. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 13-in. circle. Transfer to prepared pans. Build up edges slightly. Prick dough thoroughly with a fork; brush with oil. Bake at 425° for 5-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
- 4. In a small saucepan, saute garlic in butter until tender. Stir in the parsley, pepper and remaining salt. Combine flour and milk until smooth. Stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened.
- 5. Spread over crusts; top with chicken, tomatoes, spinach, cheeses and Italian seasoning. Bake 10-12 minutes longer or until crusts are lightly browned and cheeses are melted. Yield: 2 pizzas (6 slices each).

Reviews for Homemade Chicken Alfredo Pizzas
"Used this recipe for my BBQ pizzas. Made only the crust portion. I added 1 tsp oil to the yeast/water mixture and I drizzled 1 tbsp of oil while pulsing with flour in my processor. I must say the crust did turn out delicious. I will use this recipe again, since it was enough to cover 2 bbq pizza pans that normally I use."
"I made this pizza & was told it was the best pizza I had ever made. It was amazingly good! I was able to use fresh spinach out of my garden too!"
"The crust was a little too crispy for my liking and I used poached chicken which was a little bland. Next time I would want season the chicken somehow, but overall it was very good."
"The crust was bland as cardboard and didn't need to be cooked twice. The sauce was bland. It was really hard to eat."
"This recipe was very disappointing. The crust was bland and cardboard-like. The sauce did not taste like any alfredo sauce I have ever had. Overall it was hard to eat the chicken and crust that had been baked twice."
"Really quite good. I am not a huge fan of the taste of reheated chicken, so I will probably leave that out next time."
"I used my own pizza crust recipe but did everything else according to directions and it turned out great! It was delicious!!"
"I really like this pizza. It's fun and easy to make. When I think of pizza,this one always comes to my mind to make."
"I used my own crust recipe. For the sauce, added the flour to the butter and cooked that for a few seconds before whisking in the milk. I also used a little less cheese. Substituted red bell peppers for the tomatoes since that's what I had on hand, and added some canned mushrooms and artificial bacon bits. Delicious!"
"We loved this recipe! My husband (who doesn't cook) even helped me make the sauce. I thought the Alfredo sauce (by itself tasted great). One quick thing I do is to buy the package of Fleishman's Pizza Yeast and make the crust using the recipe that comes on the back. Then I continue with this recipe. Both crusts are good!!!"
"I LOVED this pizza! I'm typically a very picky eater and my boyfriend and I made this one night and it was a HIT!! We will DEFINITELY be making this again!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!"
"I did not like it, my son spit it out and my husband would not even try it. So I made a standard pepperoni pizza for them to eat and I just ate it anyways."
"OMGoodness! This pizza is the bomb diggity! Can't beleive it's healthy, and one slice is very filling."
"This is a great recipe! I exchanged turkey sausage for the chicken and my son really liked it!"
"It's a very thin crust that barely covers the pan. I also didn't feel it had that much taste either. I won't be making it again."
"My husband and I just had this for dinner. We used a wheat pizza crust that we always use for pizza, but everything else was per the recipe. It turned out well except my first attempt at the sauce was burnt and didn't thicken correctly. My second attempt was much better, but I did not follow the directions as written this time. I realized to make a sauce like this you should actually put the flour in with the butter first, then add the milk and whisk it constantly. I added the seasonings when the sauce was at a nice consistency."
"I first tasted this pizza at Olive Garden's, and it became one of my favorites. Now I can make it at home.....thanks for the recipe.."
"This pizza was YUMMY! I only used about 2 cups of mozzarella cheese and it was still plenty cheesy. I went a little heavy on the garlic and the result was delicious."
