Brown Butter Alfredo Chicken Pizza

Remember the sick kiddos I was talking about in the lemon sour cream cookies post? Well, mama ain’t immune to the colds and fevers they have so I’m starting to get sick too. LUCKY ME. I’m trying to stave it away {zinc, echinacea, vitamin C, the usuals}, but my efforts are failing. Come on body! Don’t fail me now!

Most jobs get sick days, but lets be honest. This household doesn’t function if I don’t make it function, so there is no rest for the weary. Actually, correction: no rest for the weary mother. So that is where we lie. Business as usual ’round these parts which means Pizza Fridays! I started making pizza on Fridays a tradition because my kids kept having heart attacks every other day of the week when we weren’t having pizza. This way, I can just refer them to/blame the calendar when we’re not having pizza. Its made the complaints go way down and my overall sanity level go up about 14 points. Always a good thing. Do you guys do pizza night too?

This is the pizza I made a few weeks ago and I had no intention of sharing it on the blog. But then I tasted it and changed my mind. Brown butter alfredo on a pizza is the freakin’ bomb dot com. And suuuuper healthy incase you’re wondering. Not.

I used my fail proof pizza dough recipe {had some in my freezer ready to go, since I’m committed to this Friday pizza night thing}, half of my brown butter alfredo recipe, leftover rotisserie chicken and some Italian Blend pre-grated cheese. Super simple to throw together, minimal ingredients and oh bessie, could I drink that brown butter alfredo down like water. If you’ve never had brown butter anything, this pizza would be a good introduction. Or these cookies. Or this pasta. It’s ALL good.

Anyways, hope you all have a fabulous weekend that involves pizza and staying healthy 🙂 Printable recipe below.

Brown Butter Alfredo Chicken Pizza

Yield: 8-10 servings

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients:

  • for the alfredo sauce:
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • for the pizza:
  • 1 lb. fail-proof pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed rotisserie chicken
  • 2 cups Italian Blend grated cheese
  • Italian seasoning, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Swirl pan occasionally to brown milk solids in the butter. Once butter starts to turn a medium brown color, turn heat to low and immediately pour in cream. Pan will sizzle, but as you stir it will subside. Sprinkle in cheese and continue stirring until cheese is completely melted and sauce is smooth. Taste and add in salt and lots of pepper, as desired. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Spread pizza dough out to a large circle. Spread half of the alfredo sauce onto the pizza dough. Toss rotisserie chicken in the rest of the sauce to moisten and top pizza with chicken. Sprinkle with cheese and Italian seasoning.
  4. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the crust is crispy and the cheese has browned slightly. Serve! Yum yum.

  7. I made this for my family about 2 weeks ago and my two teenaged sons have already asked me 3 times to make it again. I think it’s safe to say it was a hit! It was easy to make and full of delicious alfredo flavor!
