Chicken Alfredo Pizza

Making homemade pizza is such a great way to use up leftover meat and whatever veggies you have in your fridge. I recently saw that the Pioneer Woman had shared her pizza crust recipe and I'm always game for a new pizza crust so I tried it. It was good. Although I must say that the fresh pizza dough ball at Trader Joe's is really good too and you don't have to deal with flour. BUT I didn't have to drive to TJ's to get this dough so that was cool.

This time I had a leftover chicken breast from grilling a day or two before and I also had made the Guiltless Alfredo Sauce from Our Best Bites site and it was suuuper yummy and I had some of that leftover too.

Chicken Alfredo PizzaCrust:
1 teaspoon Instant Or Active Dry Yeast
1-½ cup Warm Water
4 cups All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
⅓ cups Olive Oil
Preparation Instructions
Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm water. In a mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour. Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.
Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you need it. At least 24 hours, up to 3 days.
OR a ball of crust from TJ's.
Pizza: (this makes one pizza)
1/2 of the pizza crust
1/4-1/2 cup alfredo sauce (I made my own, recipe here)
1 chicken breast thinly sliced
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes, julienned
1/4 of a small red onion, thinly sliced
small jar of artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 475. Set out the dough and let it come to room temperature. Separate into two balls. Spread out the dough evenly on a pizza stone or cookie sheet and stick it in the pre-heated oven for 5 minutes, just to let it start cooking. Pull out the pizza crust and top with sauce, chicken, tomatoes, onion, artichoke hearts, and cheeses. Put the pizza back into the oven for 7-10 more minutes until the dough is done and the cheese is melted.
