Put the takeout menu aside and get yourself in the kitchen making this pizza! I love making pizza as much as I do eating it, and am especially partial to recipes that take minimum effort and provide maximum joy. This chicken alfredo pizza uses only a handful of ingredients and it is a showstopper!

I first made this recipe on a Monday night to knead away the Monday blues. Yes, I made the dough and sauce at home, but who’s stopping you from getting them from the store? I used leftover roast chicken, sliced onions, and mozzarella as toppings. Since then it is a constant at pizza night (a monthly event in my house). It’s a good weekday or weekend idea to feed a family of four. A green salad on the side makes it a complete meal.

No Pizza Stone? Try This Hack

If you don’t have a pizza sheet/pan/pizza stone at home, I have used a baking tray by turning it upside down and placing it in the middle of the oven during the preheating process. It helps create a hot surface to cook the bottom of the pizza well. If you have a pizza stone you can definitely use it in this recipe.

I will stress on this point though: when you bake pizza, the oven should be hot. Make sure to preheat for at least 45 minutes prior to baking to ensure that there are no cold pockets inside the oven. This can affect the cooking time of the pizza, create a soggy bottom, and you wouldn’t get those blistered golden edges. 

Make Ahead

  • Pizza dough: You can make this recipe ahead of time; when ready to bake, let the dough come to room temperature before shaping, assembling and baking. 
  • Alfredo sauce: When making this recipe we need the sauce at room temperature. So if you make the sauce in advance, allow enough time for it to cool down. It takes 10 minutes to make and stores well in the fridge for 1 week. 
  • Chicken: You can use rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken from a Sunday roast to make this pizza.
