Ingredients

For The Whole Wheat Pizza Dough:

  • 2 ½ cups  whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For The Homemade Alfredo Sauce:

  • 1 cup full fat cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp  garlic powder
  • 2 ½ tbsp almond milk (or milk of choice), plus more, as needed, to thin

For The Pizza:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp sea salt plus extra to season chicken
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper plus extra to season chicken
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves whole
  • ½ small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 chicken breast boneless and skinless
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced
  • Fresh basil leaves julienned, for garnish

Instructions

To Make The Whole Wheat Pizza Dough:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, and sea salt, and whisk together until thoroughly combined.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine water and olive oil in and stir to combine.

  3. Slowly add water mixture to the flour mixture, stirring to incorporate. Mix together until a dough forms.  The dough should be soft, but not sticky. You can add a little more water if it's too dry, a tablespoon at a time. If it's too sticky, just add a little more flour.

  4. Once the dough has formed into a ball, knead the dough for 5 minutes.  Then, roll the dough out into a large circle using a rolling pin or by stretching it with your hands.  Do not make a raised rim for the crust since that will make it tricky to grill - keep the edges flat.

To Make The Homemade Alfredo Sauce:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until very smooth.

  2. Add to a saucepan and heat over medium heat.

  3. Heat through, but take care not to overheat because it will begin to separate.

  4. Let it cool before spreading over the pizza.

To Make The Chicken Alfredo Pizza:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken breast generously with kosher salt and pepper. Cook chicken breast in skillet until no longer pink in the middle, about 8-10 minutes. Once cooked, allow to cool and then slice into bite-size pieces. Set aside for later.
  3. Spread the Alfredo sauce over the pizza dough, leaving about 1/2 inch around the outside edge for the crust. Sprinkle sauce with oregano, basil, thyme, salt and pepper.

  4. Spread the baby spinach leaves evenly across the pizza. Arrange the onion slices and sliced chicken over the spinach. Top with mozzarella slices.
  5. Place the pizza into the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crust edges are golden and the cheese is melted. After taking the pizza out of the oven, allow it to cool for a few minutes so that the cheese has time to set. Garnish with fresh, julienned basil leaves if desired. Slice pizza and serve.

Recipes Notes:

  1. I used a pizza paddle and stone to make the Alfredo Chicken Pizza. If you plan to use one make sure that you build the pizza on the paddle.

  2. Remember to flour the paddle well so can easily transfer the pizza into the oven.

  3. I stretched the dough into an 11 ½ to 12 ½ inch round, maybe 1/8 to ¼ inch thick which you are free to adjust based on your preference.

  4. If you don't have a paddle no worries, you can flip your baking sheet the other way around instead.
