What kind of alfredo sauce do I use?
Store bought or homemade alfredo sauce works in this recipe. One time I made Alfredo sauce and I forgot to add Parmesan cheese *sigh* If you want to see my alfredo sauce recipe, click here.
Variations of white pizza:
- more meat-you can always put more meat of any sort on the pizza such as ham, Canadian bacon, pork bacon, beef, etc.
- add vegetables-you can add all sorts of vegetables to this pizza and it would still be tasty! Some examples include green bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, artichokes, etc.
- more garlic-in my personal opinion, you can never have too much garlic on anything.
- more cheese-the more cheese the better!
- omit meat-you can make this a vegetarian pizza by omitting the meat
Overview of steps of this garlic pizza recipe:
- first, precook pizza dough-This is important because the dough will have a harder time getting cooked throughout if you just slapped the dough on the pan and just started adding toppings with out somewhat cooking the dough first.
- second, cook onion and garlic-this step is vital to do while the dough is precooking because if it is not ready to be put on the pizza immediately after the dough comes out of the oven, this would delay the cooking time. Sometimes if cooking time is delayed so much, it causes the dough to not cook right. It is important to throw all the toppings on immediately after the dough comes out of the oven from precooking.
- next, coat chicken in onion and garlic-this is important because 1. It warms the chicken up if you precooked your chicken a while ago and 2. It gives the chicken a more garlic flavor.
- then, add sauce, chicken mixture, and then remaining toppings when pizza is done precooking.
- finally, bake the pizza until cheese is melted or is warm in the center if you touch your finger to it.

Garlic Chicken Pizza
- 1 store bought pizza crust
- 1 15 oz can alfredo sauce
- 2 cups chicken breast in one inch pieces
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup chopped white onion
- 2 tbsp crushed garlic
- about 1 cup of Swiss cheese +/- if desired
- about 1 cup mozzarella cheese +/- if desired
- herb seasonings for top: garlic salt, thyme, and/or oregano
- Precook pizza dough according to package instructions (for mine, it said to bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees). While cooking, melt butter in skillet. Add in white onion and garlic. Cook until golden brown. Throw in chicken in skillet with onion and garlic to warm it up (if not warm already) to blend the flavors.
- When pizza is done precooking, remove from oven and add Alfredo sauce. Spread chicken/onion/garlic mixture over Alfredo sauce. Sprinkle desired amount of cheeses on top. Add in desired amount of seasonings to boost flavor.
- Finish baking according to crust directions. For my crust, it said to bake for 6 minutes at 400 degrees or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven, and cut and serve your Garlic Chicken Pizza.
