Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pizza

Our kids love pizza, but it just gets so boring when you have one variety, or that's what I think anyway, I'm sure not everyone agrees with that! One day when I was making pizza, I thought why not try a pizza that's kind of like one of our favorite ways to have Alfredo-with chicken and broccoli. And so this pizza recipe was born!

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Pizza

1 recipe Bread Sticks (follow instructions through first rise of dough)
Olive Oil
Garlic Salt
1 recipe Alfredo Sauce
2 cooked chicken breasts (cook anyway that works for you), cubed
1 bunch broccoli
2-3 Green onions, chopped
Mozzarella Cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, you can also preheat your pizza stone if you would like, I don't  because then I can use the counter to make the dough without killing it! Prepare the pizza stone by spraying it with cooking spray. 

Start by shaping half the bread stick dough into a circle. I like to use half and either make two varieties of pizza or use the second half for bread sticks. I shape it on my pizza stone, because it seems like it's a lot easier to do it on the stone, than it is to try and get it off of something else onto the stone. I simply roll it into a circle (ish) roughly the size of the pizza stone. Next, poke holes in the dough with the fork. Spread olive oil to the edges with a pastry brush and sprinkle the whole thing with garlic salt. Bake until golden (anywhere from 8 to 12 minutes depending on your oven.).

Now for the fun part. Start by spreading the sauce almost to the edges (you want some crust!). Onto the Alfredo sauce you just sprinkle the chicken, broccoli and green onions, however looks good to you. Last, place the mozzarella on top of all of the rest. I didn't give a measurement for this one, you can go lighter, because it does already have Alfredo on it, or you can add a bit more to kind of glue the whole thing together. It will taste great either way!

Finish baking until cheese is melted and crust looks brown and pretty (again from 8-12 minutes). Let stand for about 5 minutes before slicing and serve.
