Key Ingredients

To create your mouthwatering Chicken Alfredo Pizza, you’ll need the following:

Ingredients needed to make a chicken alfredo pizza

  • Pizza Dough: You have two options here. You can either use pre-made pizza bases or get your hands dirty and make your own homemade pizza dough. I’ve got the perfect recipe for you!

  • Alfredo Sauce: Prepare to be blown away by my homemade alfredo sauce recipe. Made with butter, garlic, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, and seasonings, it’s the epitome of a delectable white pizza sauce. Trust me, it’s worth the effort. However, if you’re in a pinch, you can use jarred alfredo sauce as a substitute.

  • Chicken: Cubed, cooked chicken is the star protein in this pizza. Feel free to use any pre-cooked chicken you have on hand, whether it’s grilled, boiled, or from a rotisserie.

  • Mozzarella Cheese: The classic pizza cheese that adds that perfect melty, gooey goodness to your alfredo sauce pizza. Shredded cheese will make your life a little easier. In this recipe, we mix the mozzarella with the sauce and chicken to create a creamy topping that browns beautifully in the oven.

  • Olive Oil: A touch of olive oil is the secret to achieving a deliciously browned and crisp pizza crust.

  • Fresh Basil: We can’t forget to garnish our masterpiece with some fresh basil. It adds a burst of brightness and flavor to your Chicken Alfredo Pizza.

  1. Prep: Preheat your oven to the highest temperature it can go (mine reaches 550°F). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to preheat as well.

  2. Make the Alfredo Sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add garlic. Cook for 30 seconds, then add flour and cook for an additional minute. Gradually add the milk and cream, whisking continuously until the sauce starts to thicken. Stir in the parmesan, mozzarella, and seasonings (salt, pepper, and nutmeg). Remove from heat, fold in the chicken, and allow the sauce to cool before using it as a pizza topping.

  1. Shape the Dough: If you’re using fresh pizza dough, sprinkle a pizza peel with semolina to prevent sticking, then gently shape/stretch the dough into a 10 or 12-inch circle. For my bread maker dough recipe, remember to split it in half to make two pizzas. Ensure your dough can move freely on the pizza peel before adding your toppings.

  2. Fill the Pizza and Bake: Spread half of the alfredo sauce with chicken onto the pizza dough, brush the edges with olive oil, and bake in the preheated oven for 4-5 minutes. Switch on the broiler and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, keeping a close eye on the pizza as it bubbles and browns to perfection.

  3. Finish and Serve: Allow your finished Chicken Alfredo Pizza to cool for 10 minutes, allowing the sauce to set. Garnish with fresh basil, slice it up, and get ready to indulge in a slice of heaven!

Recipe Tips

Here are some tips to ensure your Chicken Alfredo Pizza turns out as divine as possible:

  • Mix it all together: It might seem unconventional, but trust me, stirring the mozzarella cheese into the alfredo sauce is the secret to achieving the perfect cheesy consistency. Embrace the mixing and let the flavors meld together beautifully.

  • Don’t Burn the Garlic: When cooking the alfredo sauce on the stove, be cautious not to let the garlic burn. Cook it for just 30 seconds, ensuring it releases its wonderful aroma without turning bitter. As soon as the garlic is ready, be ready to whisk in the milk.

  • Shape the Dough by Hand: Ditch the rolling pin! To create a truly authentic pizza, gently shape the dough by hand. Avoid rolling it out, as the pressure can deflate the dough and prevent those delightful air pockets and bubbles from forming. Leave the edges slightly thicker to achieve that perfect pizza crust.

  • This Recipe Makes Two Pizzas: Keep in mind that you should only cook one pizza at a time. Prepare one pizza with half of the chicken alfredo filling, and save the rest for the second pizza. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the sauce and make the second pizza the following day.

What to Serve With Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Chicken Alfredo Pizza pairs beautifully with a range of delicious sides to complete your meal. Consider serving it with:

  • Classic Pasta Accompaniments: Treat your taste buds to a delightful Caesar Salad or a creamy Burrata Salad. And don’t forget to whip up some delectable Olive Garden Breadsticks to round out the pasta vibes.

  • Italian-Style Soups: If you’re looking to elevate your meal even further, serve your Chicken Alfredo Pizza with an Italian-style soup such as Italian Wedding Soup or Zuppa Toscana. The combination is sheer perfection!

  • Game Day Delights: If you’re whipping up a pizza feast for the big game, why stop at just one dish? Prepare more appetizers like a zesty Buffalo Chicken Dip or some mouthwatering Cheesy Baked Potato Skins to keep the party going.

Variations on Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Ready to get creative? Here are some fantastic variations you can try with your Chicken Alfredo Pizza:

  • Add more flavor: Take your pizza to the next level by drizzling it with fresh Basil Pesto or adding diced Roma tomatoes after it’s cooked. The burst of freshness will leave your taste buds dancing.

  • Crispy cooked bacon: For a touch of indulgence, sprinkle some crispy cooked bacon on top of your pizza. The combination of flavors is simply heavenly.

  • Experiment with different meats: Step out of the chicken zone and try using leftover turkey or steak as your protein of choice. It adds a unique twist to the classic alfredo pizza experience.

  • Add some veggies: Looking to make your pizza a touch healthier? Sauteed mushrooms or chopped spinach make excellent additions to the alfredo mixture. Just make sure to cook them before adding them to the pizza.

Other Ways to Cook Homemade Pizza

If you’re feeling adventurous, there are alternative methods to cook your homemade pizza. Let’s explore a couple of creative options:

  • Air Fryer: For small pizzas, you can utilize your air fryer. Keep in mind that each air fryer is different, so cooking times may vary. Start by cooking the pizza in the air fryer for 5-7 minutes at 400°F/200°C. If it needs more time, add 2 minutes and check again until it reaches perfection.

  • Grill: Take your pizza-making skills outdoors and fire up the grill! Use a rolling pin to get the dough to your desired thickness, then cook the dough (without toppings) on the grill for 2 minutes on each side. After that, add your sauce and toppings and continue grilling with the lid on until everything is nice and melted. While this method may not be ideal for the alfredo sauce pizza, it’s definitely worth a try!
