Chicken & Spinach Alfredo Pizza

by Erin

Sometimes my pizza toppings are composed of a random array of things found while digging through the junkyard that is my refrigerator. Those pizzas don’t regularly manage to find their way onto this screen, but once in awhile I create something worth repeating beyond the realm of simply using up leftovers. With the amount of pizza eaten in my kitchen, one is bound to squeak out every once in awhile.

This is another one of my pasta-dish-gone-pizza recipes. The first was the Cajun Chicken Alfredo Pizza, inspired by none other than my Guiltless Cajun Chicken Alfredo. But instead of cajun seasoning and broccoli, you have spinach and pesto with your chicken alfredo pizza. Isn’t coming up with new pizzas fun? I remember when choosing between pepperoni or just cheese seemed like a difficult choice. Now the topping options are endless and I must try them all!!

One year ago: Cake batter Fruit Dip


Serves 2-3


1 recipe thin-crust pizza dough

2 Tbsp basil pesto

1/2 cup Alfredo sauce

1/2 cup cooked shredded chicken

1 cup fresh spinach

1/2 cup Mozzarella, shredded

1/4 cup Parmesan, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees with a pizza stone placed on the center rack for 15 minutes.
  2. On a cornmeal dusted pizza peel, roll out the pizza dough. Spread the pesto and Alfredo sauce over the dough within 1/2 inch of the edge. Top with chicken pieces, spinach and sprinkle cheeses over top.
  3. Shimmy off the pizza peel onto the preheated pizza stone and bake for 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.

I love this pizza theme! Most of my pizza toppings are whatever is in the fridge…but the planned out approach looks so good!

Simple and yummy! I agree with Jen, keep these idea coming. I’m not very creative when it comes to pizza and just stick with the usual, so I love all these ideas that you have!
