Tasty Tuesday - Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Lost in Love Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Joy is in love with the idea of love in Back When You Were Easier to Love, by Emily Wing Smith. She is so busy chasing after the boy that she thinks she needs that she almost misses the loyal friend that is right in front of her. Pizza is the ultimate meal for a road trip, and Joy and Noah share a pizza together on theirs. Just like Joy’s journey, this chicken alfredo pizza is full of surprising tastes and flavors.

Pizza dough:
1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup warm water
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup pesto
1 ounce jar alfredo sauce
1 cup chicken, grilled and cubed
2 cups mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese

Brew the yeast in the warm water until foamy. Add flour and salt and mix until the dough is smooth.  Let the dough raise for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out the pizza dough. Let it sit for ten minutes and roll the dough out again. Apply the olive oil to the top of the pizza with a pastry brush and sprinkle the garlic on top. Cook the crust for 5-8 minutes, being careful not to brown it.
Allow the crust to sit for a few minutes. Spread the pesto over the surface of the pizza, leaving 1/2 space from the edges. Evenly distribute the chicken cubes on the pizza, followed by the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese as desired.
Put the pizza back in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the cheeses are melted. Serves 4-6.
