Frequently Asked Questions
What size of pizza does this make?
This recipe is tailored for a 12-inch pizza.
Can I use homemade Alfredo sauce or homemade pizza dough?
Do I need both types of cheese?
Not necessarily. If you prefer using just one type, ensure you have a total of 2 cups.
Can I add other toppings?
Of course! Popular vegetable add-ons include bell peppers, diced tomatoes, olives, and mushrooms.
What if I don’t have a pizza stone?
If you don’t own a pizza stone, a regular baking sheet will do. Ensure you preheat it for best results.
- If you don’t have Alfredo sauce on hand, a rich béchamel sauce can serve as a base.
- No mozzarella? Feel free to use cheddar. Just ensure your total cheese quantity is around 2 cups.
- Vegetarians can omit the chicken and increase the amount of veggies.
Tips From the Chef
- For a crisper crust, preheat your pizza stone or tray in the oven before placing the dough on it.
- If using veggies like mushrooms or bell peppers, sauté them slightly before using as toppings to remove excess moisture.
- Cheese lovers can create a cheese blend using different types for a richer flavor profile.
Ovens can be unpredictable. While the given cook time is a guideline, it’s crucial to be guided by visual cues. A perfectly baked chicken Alfredo pizza will have a golden-brown crust and bubbly, slightly browned cheese on top.
Storage & Reheating Instructions
If you have leftovers, store your pizza slices in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For freezing, place individual slices on a baking sheet until frozen, then transfer to a freezer bag for up to 2 months. To reheat, use an oven or toaster oven at 375°F until heated through, usually 10-15 minutes from the fridge or 20-25 minutes from frozen.
