- This pizza offers the best of what chicken alfredo and white sauce pizza have to offer.
- The heavy cream-based white sauce is swapped for my healthy alfredo sauce (but you’d never know the difference).
- It’s quick, easy, and a great homemade pizza recipe for beginners.
- Pizza dough - Using storebought dough is super convenient. I love Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods pizza dough, but if you have a tried-and-true homemade pizza dough recipe, go ahead and use it.
- Healthy alfredo sauce - Storebought alfredo sauce doesn’t compare to making it from scratch, and my healthy alfredo sauce recipe only takes 5 minutes!
- Garlic - Two fresh garlic cloves are just enough, but feel free to add another clove or two to amp up the flavor.
- Mozzarella cheese - Freshly shredded, if possible. Mozzarella is standard on pizza, but you can use shredded parmesan cheese, white cheddar, or swiss if you like. Alternatively, top the baked pizza with torn burrata for extra cheesy goodness.
- Red pepper flakes - A pinch of red pepper flakes is plenty for a subtle kick. Feel free to make it spicier with extra.
- Spinach - Not a fan of spinach? Kale works too.
- Chicken - Save time and cook the chicken ahead of time. Shredded or diced chicken breasts or thighs are best!
Step 1: Prepare the pizza dough. Following the package instructions (or using your go-to method), roll the pizza dough out and place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet (or pizza stone).
Step 2: Prep the alfredo sauce and chicken. If you haven’t done so already, cook the chicken and make the healthy alfredo sauce from scratch.
Step 3: Assemble the pizza. Spread the alfredo sauce over the dough, then add the minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Sprinkle half of the cheese on top. Pile on the spinach, then the chicken, and finish with the remaining cheese.
Step 4: Bake the pizza. Bake the pizza in the oven until the crust is slightly golden brown and the cheese is melted. Slice and enjoy!
Expert tips and FAQs
- Make a double batch of the homemade alfredo sauce so you can have extras for drizzling over the cooked pizza, using it as a dipping sauce on the side, and storing for later.
- Running low on time? Swap the home cooked chicken for a storebought rotisserie chicken instead.
- Do you like pizza crust on the crunchy side? Bake the crust without any toppings until it’s firm but not cooked through. Afterward, add the sauce and toppings, and return it to the oven until the cheese is melted.
