Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Look at me blogging two days in a row! This will be short and sweet, as I’ve got just a little time before I have to leave to head to the yoga studio. I subbed a level 2 Vinyasa class Tuesday before my normal class, and am subbing another level 2 tonight. I love the faced paced nature of an advanced class. It’s definitely a change of pace from my normal candlelight or meditative flow class!

It’s nights like these where I just need a quick and easy (yet still all-natural!) dinner. Last Friday night the fiancé and I were staying in and I made this Chicken Alfredo Pizza using what we had in the house. It turned out unbeliveably delicious!

I added fresh Rosemary to the sauce and OH MY GOSH was it good! I was dipping my spoon in to taste again, and again, and again. I might as well have been eating it as a soup. :)

If you don’t have/like/want asparagus, you could always use fresh spinach. Or add in some chopped red onion. Lots of possibilities here! We used Udi’s gluten-free crust (it’s what I had in the freezer!), but feel free to use your favorite store-bought (and all-natural!) or homemade crust. Or try this Cauliflower Pizza Crust for a grain-free version!

Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Ingredients:

Your favorite store-bought or homemade pizza crust

1 cup shredded chicken (we used rotisserie chicken)

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup whole milk

2 TBSP butter

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 sprig rosemary, chopped finely

1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed

olive oil, for drizzling

salt and pepper, to taste

1 TBSP flour (optional), for roux

Directions:

1) Prepare pizza crust according to directions. We used  Udi’s frozen crust, and pre-baked it until it was lightly brown and crisp.

2) Meanwhile, place asparagus on baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until fork tender and starting to brown. Slice into thirds. Set aside.

2) While crust is pre-baking (if advised), prepare sauce. Melt butter in saucepan and sauté garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

3) Add in 1 TBSP flour to create a roux. Stir constantly until roux becomes golden brown color. This will help thicken sauce. If you are gluten-free, omit this step.

4) Add in cream and milk. Bring to a simmer.

5) Add in rosemary. Salt and pepper to taste.

6) Let thicken until desired consistency.

7) Once pizza crust is ready, spread thin layer of sauce over crust. Sprinkle over chicken, asparagus, and top with remainder of parmesan cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and ingredients are heated through.

8) Enjoy!

  1. Looks soooo good, and the rosemary was something I would have never thought of!

      Yes! The rosemary makes it just that much more delicious. I’m sure you could do the same thing with other herbs as well!
