I wanted to create something with chicken, artichokes and bacon, giving a lot of thought to what I could do with these three ingredients. I had thought about making a lasagna with these ingredients, but then finally settled on something easier! A pizza! So come along, and head into the kitchen with me as I put this together with you!
1/2 cup of alfredo sauce
1 tsp oregano, I used dry
6 tops of fresh basil chiffonade, divided
1 tomato chopped
1 1/2 cups of fresh roasted chicken, shredded
1/2 cup pancetta (Italian bacon), cut into small cubes
1 cup each of mozzarella and cheddar, grated
Get your pizza dough made and ready and bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes. Remove this from the oven and let it cool. Using a paint brush, paint the dough with the alfredo sauce.
Next, sprinkle on the oregano, 1/2 of the basil, followed by the tomato.
Then sprinkle with a bit of the cheese. Follow this with the chicken and the pancetta and the remaining basil.
Pretty, isn’t it? Then dot the pizza with the artichoke hearts.
Top with the remaining cheese, covering the pizza evenly.
Place this in the oven and bake for roughly 15 minutes, until the crust browns. when done, remove from the oven.
Let the pizza sit for about 5 minutes, slice and then serve it up!
I hope that you enjoy the gentle flavors of this pizza as much as we did!
Now go out and have a great Sunday, and thank you for joining me in the kitchen!
