MMM Alfredo Pizza

          So, what’s for dinner? How about having a delicious chicken, veggie, or pineapple pizza, with a twist? Pizzas main ingredient does not have to be tomato sauce. Spice it up with homemade Alfredo sauce instead. By the end of this, you should be able to whip up a delicious meal for your family, friends and if your greedy enough, just for yourself.
        Alfredo pizza is not all that different from normal pizza. You will need all the usual ingredients; crust (premade or from scratch), any toppings of your choice, heavy whipping cream, kosher salt and a mix of mozzarella and asiago cheese (grated). You will be making the Alfredo from scratch. Feel free to yours your standard French cut pan or wok.
Start by heating you pan on medium heat. Pour in the heavy whipping cream and salt and constantly stir until it reduces to about one quarter of its initial amount. Now is where you throw in your toppings of choice. It could be cut up chunks of chicken, broccoli, green peppers, shrimp, tomatoes and anything else your heart desires. Continue to stir the ingredients until the cram thickens into a delicious creamy Alfredo sauce.
Once your sauce and toppings are ready pour all of it onto your premade uncooked pizza crust. Spread your toppings liberally al over the crust, leaving and inch around the perimeter uncovered. This doesn’t mean you cant have fun with the crust. Feel free to brush it with your own buttery concoction of basil, garlic and some of your favorite spices.
Now sprinkle your pizza with the mozzarella and asiago cheese and set the oven for 350-400 degrees. Once the oven is preheated bake your pizza for 20-25 minutes.
TING! Your scrumptious pizza is ready for “getting down”, chowing or “nom nomming” as some of my friends like to say. Enjoy your meal and remember, you can make any night interesting with a gourmet Alfredo pizza.
