Chicken Club Basil Alfredo Pizza

There are so many great kinds of pizza out there. But you know me I can’t just make anything basic on the first try! So instead of playing it safe and just going for the standard pepperoni, we went big and went for the chicken club basil alfredo! Mostly because I freaking love alfredo and partly because I am terrified of trying to make a red sauce from scratch.

Making homemade pizza can definitely be a little scary! But don’t be intimidated it is relatively simple.

Of course all pizza has to start with a delicious crust!

Ingredients:

  • 2  Cooked Chicken Brest- Shredded or sliced
  • 6 Pieces of Bacon- cooked and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Garlic Clove- minced
  • 1/8 tsp Onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 Cup 2% Milk
  • 2 Chopped Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1/2 Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1-2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese- depending on how you like it 😉

In a medium saucepan over a medium heat melt the butter and add the garlic and onion powder. Whisk in the flour and basil and cook for about a minute to create your roux. Slowly pour in the milk and cream while quickly whisking. Let the mixture gently boil and stir occasionally until it starts to thicken. This can take a minute or two.

Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Keep on low heat, stirring occasionally until you are ready to use it.

Now it’s time to build your pie! We did sauce, chicken, 1/2 bacon, cheese, 1/2 bacon and basil. But go nuts! Layer it however your little heart pleases.

If you did the homemade crust then bake at 425 for 7-10 minutes until the crust is golden brown. If you are doing a store bought crust then follow the directions on the package.
