Fettuccini Alfredo Chicken Pizza

I know this is not a very good picture. I forgot to take a picture before everyone started eating. This was so good. I am a fan of pepperoni pizza and don't venture off from that much. I am very glad I tried this because it is my new favorit pizza. The recipe calls for some vegetables to be put on the pizza but I decided to leave them off. I know I should add them to make it a little healthier but I decided we could have a salad on the side and get the same effect.

Fettuccini Alfredo Chicken Pizza

1 Pizza dough recipe (or Flat Pita Bread-not pocket pitas)
1 1/2 c. ranch dressing
1 T garlic cloves, minced
2 t. basil
1/2 c. shredded Parmesan Cheese
2 lbs. cooked chicken or sausage (or 1 lb each)
Green Onions
Vegetables (Mushrooms, Zucchini, yellow squash, onions, etc.) diced or cut thin
Tomatoes diced small
Mozzarella Cheese

Preheat pizza stone at 400 degrees. Roll out crust, or lay pitas on stone. Mix ranch, parmesan, basil and garlic in bowl. Saute meat and vegetables together until soft. Put sauce on pitas or dough, put meat mixture on top and then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 400 until golden brown. Makes 2 pizzas and serves 6.

(I put mine on a cookie sheet to bake at 400 degrees for about 15 - 20 minutes.)

Fast and Easy Pizza Dough

3 cups flour, more or less
1 T honey, heaping
1 T oil, heaping
1 cup warm water
1 T yeast
1/2 t garlic salt

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. (if using a pizza stone, let stone heat for at least 30minutes in the oven before baking pizza.) Mix all pizza dough ingredients together, except the flour. Add flour and knead for a bit then put into pan (or use a pizza peel and pizza stone.) If baking in a sheet pan, bake for about 12 minutes (checking often) until crust is browned and cheese is golden and bubbly. if baking on the preheated pizza stone, slide pizza onto stone and bake for about 8 minutes. Makes 1 large pizza.
