Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pizza


I'm on a pizza kick lately.  I made another one last night, not necessarily because I was craving pizza, but because I had some stuff in the fridge that needed to be used up and it just so happened that I thought they might make a tasty pizza.  I was right.


Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pizza


Ingredients:
1 batch pizza dough, enough for a 15” pizza
¾ cup alfredo sauce
1 cup cooked chicken, diced
1 cup broccoli florets, lightly steamed
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded



Directions:
Preheat oven to 425°.


Roll out pizza crust onto a pizza pan.  Spread the alfredo sauce over the crust and top with chicken, broccoli, and cheese.


Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese has melted.


Makes 4 servings.

Disclaimer on the pictures: I made the crust wrong, so that's why it's really "bready" looking.  I forgot that my pizza crust mix made enough dough for 2 pizzas, so I didn't divide it in half before pressing it out onto my pan.  It didn't hit me until it was halfway done baking, and by then it was obviously too late!  It was still good, there was just a little more crust than usual.  I called it "deep dish"!

To make sure the broccoli wasn't too crunchy on the finished pizza, I steamed it in the microwave for 2 minutes.  I drained the florets, then laid them on a kitchen towel and gave them a light squeeze to get out any excess moisture.  It didn't want the broccoli to make my pizza soggy.




The biggest bummer about not dividing the pizza dough was that now I can't make another pizza dough later this week.  That was the last of the Pampered Chef crust mix that I won as a door prize.  I don't think they make it anymore, so I will have to find a new pizza crust mix.  What kind do you use?  If you have a kind you really like, please leave a comment and let me know.

Oh I wish I would have seen this post last night when I was making pizza. My daughter loves broccoli, she would have been thrilled to have it on her pizza. This looks so yummy! I have tried so many pizza crust recipes and havent found a perfect one yet. For a few months I have been using one from recipes.com. 3-1/2 cups selfrising flour, 1-1/2 cups hot water, 1/2 cup oil. It makes 2 crusts. It is kind of bready, but it is really quick without all the kneading and stuff. Reminds me kinda of a Chef Boyardee crust mix.
