- 2 recipes for pizza dough or use store-bought pizza crusts instead
- 200 ml cream
- 100 gram dairy butter
- 50 gram grated grana padano
- juice of half a lemon
- pepper and salt to taste
- small bunch of fresh parsley
- about 8 artichoke hearts
- 2 chicken breasts
- about 80 gram grated mozzarella
- about 100 gram smoked bacon lardons
Kitchen equipment needed
- medium-sized pan
- 2 forks
- oven tray lined with parchment paper
- cutting board & chef’s knife
Preparation — 30 minutes
If you want to make your own pizza dough, it’s best to start with the dough because it needs time to rise.
While the dough is rising, you can make the alfredo sauce and chicken, this amount is enough for 2 pizzas. If you only want to make 1 pizza, easily use halve the ingredients. Fill a medium-sized pan with water and bring to a boil. Boil the chicken breasts in the water for about 10 to 15 minutes, the exact time depends on the size of breasts. Divide the chicken into pieces using 2 forks as soon as they’re done.
Add butter and cream to a saucepan and heat for a few minutes. Add grated grana padano along with juice of half a lemon. Let the sauce boil gently and stir from time to time to prevent it from burning. You’ll notice the sauce will become thicker because of the cheese. If it has reduced by about half, it’s done.
Finely chop the parsley and stir about half into the sauce. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and set aside.
Finishing the chicken alfredo pizza — 30 minutes
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line an oven tray with parchment paper.
Roll out the dough to the correct shape. The thinner the dough, the harder and crunchier it eventually will be. Covr the bottom with the alfredo sauce, leave the edges free of sauce. Halve the artichoke hearts and divide over the pizza. Also divide the bacon and chicken pieces over the pizzas.
Finish with grated mozzarella and then bake until golden brown in about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact time depends on the thickness of the pizza and how powerful your oven is. Enjoy!
