I just recently made another round of amazing whole wheat pizzas because the recipe was such a big hit .This time though I turned the tables and went with a totally different topping and sauce.I wanted to challenge myself and move away from traditionally so I went with a chicken Alfredo sauce. My toppings were a combination of chicken, onions, spinach and leftover stir fry vegetables. I basically used anything in the fridge that would be edible and go well with the sauce. Surprisingly all the toppings worked pretty well and balance each other out.
For anyone that's never tried this pizza I have to say its very hardy and I got so full after three pieces, but its expected when you use a rich sauce like Alfredo :). For me, it was really different for my palate because my brain is so use to the same kind of sauce; however I really loved this pizza and now in the future I'll know exactly what its like without wondering. I love that my favorite sauce in pasta dishes has joined forces with another favorite of mine :). Its actually even better cold and the next day because all the flavors absorb into the crust so well. I actually prefer this whole wheat pizza crust and I most likely start using it as a regular recipe.
Now I have made Alfredo sauce before for pasta dishes and I have to say it has way more work behind it then a tomato sauce, but I have a really simple recipe for it.For me I went with making a fresh homemade sauce and by going this way it takes some time to make. So I recommend making it while the pizza is rising in the first round.The most time spent with this sauce is waiting for it to thicken and continuously whisking. During this time waiting I prepare the toppings and chopped ingredients for it to be ready. Time- management is very important for these kinds of recipes so everything is done at the right time.
I really like chicken Alfredo pizza and I like it even more because its a homemade pizza, which is the best way to go when your craving it.There really easy to make and whole a lot cheaper then ordering. Get exactly what you want and can't complain about the lack of toppings since your the one that put them on lol.
So enjoy homemade pizzas!
