Fast and Yummy Dinner: Chicken Alfredo Pizza

A little off onto another track...let's talk about cooking.  More specifically, easy cooking! 

I had a chicken Alfredo pizza in San Diego and decided this needed to become part of my cooking repertoire.  After many years of experimenting, here is an awesome recipe for a delish pizza that takes about 20-30 minutes.

Check directions on dough and follow accordingly.  Directions will handle baking setting and rise timing for the dough.

2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Whole Lemon
5 leaves Fresh Basil
Classico Alfredo Sauce
2 garlic cloves - diced
1 wheat dough by Trader Joe's
8 oz Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Heat oil in pan.  Add chopped up chicken.  Add garlic, squeeze two halves of lemon, and add chopped up basil (3 leaves) into pan.  Cook until chicken is done (approx 5-10 minutes depending on chicken size).

Roll dough onto pizza pan.  Add about 3/4 jar of Classico Alfredo sauce onto dough and spread evenly.  Add shredded mozzarella cheese on entire pizza (if you like more cheese...add more cheese).  Add chicken onto the entire pizza evenly.  Add chopped basil (remaining 2 leaves) across pizza evenly.

Cook according to instructions on package of dough.  Should be about 10 minutes.

Let stand about 5 minutes so the sauce does not ooze out.  Slice and serve with salad...or not...serve to friends...or not...the world is yours!  Do as you please, but please enjoy!
