Chicken Alfredo Pizza Recipe @pinch

This chicken Alfredo pizza is a quick and easy gourmet pizza to make at home. Frozen bread dough and rotisserie chicken lets this pizza be whipped up rather quickly. Brushing the crust with garlic butter adds robust flavor. We loved the thick and creamy homemade Alfredo sauce. Topping with chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and more cheese makes this pizza a hearty meal. My family is a traditional pizza kind of family, but one of my brothers mentioned trying this combination and I rose to the challenge. I am lazy when it comes to pizza and have used frozen bread dough for years. Having rotisserie chicken available has made this recipe a breeze! I thought adding spinach and mushrooms would make this pizza more hearty and sneak in a few more veggies. I used a variety of cheeses, but to save money you could use one kind. Also, the Alfredo sauce is more of a white sauce and less of a commercial Alfredo. My family really enjoyed it and the seasoning is mild.
