I experimented in the kitchen to create a pizza my husband loves. It doesn't use your traditional tomato based sauce. Instead, it uses a jar of alfredo sauce. We like to use garlic alfredo sauce. The garlic really makes the pizza. It may seem like a lot, but trust me, it's good. Buying already minced fresh garlic saves time and hastle. I prefer to use the pizza pans with holes in the bottom or else the crust can get a little soggy. The crust recipe uses a breadmaker but any pizza crust recipe will work. Using my breadmaker for the crust saves a lot of time- I used to make this weekly. We love it!

This pizza was so delicious! It was the first recipe i made on my new pizza stone, and boy was I glad I chose it! However, I had to do a few macgyver like moves in the kitchen. Much to my dismay - my garlic was all bad! So, I just used A LOT of garlic powder while cooking the chicken, as well as adding some Italian Seasoning. I also sprinkled an Asiago/Parmesan/Romano mix on top of the chicken right after i pulled it off the heat, and let it melt on top of the chicken. I didn't have any green onions either, so I caramelized a yellow onion. The alfredo sauce I used was a lighter version of an Alfredo Sauce (Very Low Fat Tomato Alfredo Sauce Recipe #39786. I just left out the tomatoes in the sauce recipe.) After spreading the sauce on the crust, I placed the shredded chicken, the onions and then sprinkled lower fat mozzarella cheese on it and a little bit of asiago/parm/ramano mix, with some shakes of Italian seasoning. After about 10-15 mins, i place the tomatoes on top and cooked for about 5 more minutes. AMAZING!
