Pizza Night





>Recipe Below
    {Original}    

What's your favorite pizza and toppings?  I'm always on the lookout for new pizzas to try that are out of the ordinary.  This past weekend, I was going through my refrigerator and remembered that I had some leftover alfredo sauce.  I got to thinking what I could do with that and had a vision of a white-type pizza with the following ingredients:
  • Diced cooked chicken
  • Roasted bell peppers (jarred, drained on paper towels and sliced)
  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese (grated or sliced thin)
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic Glaze (from Traders Joe's... this is the best stuff!)
(My original dough recipe can be found here and for assembly/cooking method click here for a tutorial).

On top of the dough I placed about 3 oz of the alfredo sauce, spreading it out near the edge, leaving about an inch.  Next I placed the diced chicken (about 1 cup), roasted red peppers and topped with thinly sliced fresh mozzarella cheese.  Baking time was about 13 minutes and after it was removed and cooled down for about 3 minutes, I added fresh basil and drizzled the balsamic glaze.

Wow - the flavors really hit the spot.  I really liked the glaze and sweetness it provided.  I'll be keeping this one in the rotation!
