White Garlic Chicken and Veggie Pizza
With a creamy, garlicky white sauce and loaded with fresh vegetable, this will be a favorite pizza.
Dovetailing tip: 2 hours prior to making the pizza, take the dough you made for Meal 4 out of the fridge. Allow it to come to room temperature. Roll out the dough for a pizza crust. Allow to rise for 30 mins to 1 hour. Pre-bake the dough for 5 minutes at 475 degrees F. Add the toppings and bake as directed.
Dovetailing tip: Grab the veggies that you prepared during Meal 2. Time saved!
|dough for one regular pizza crust|
|1 cup||mozzarella cheese|
|1||chicken breast, cooked and diced|
|1/2 cup||sliced mushrooms|
|1/4 cup||chopped onion (i like to use green or red onion)|
|1/2 cup||chopped artichoke hearts|
|1||heaping cup of fresh spinach|
|FOR THE GARLIC SAUCE:|
|1 1/4 cups||milk|
|2 to 3||garlic cloves, minced|
|2 tablespoons||fresh basil, finely chopped|
|1/2 cup||fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded|
For the White Garlic Sauce:
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until no lumps remain.
Gradually whisk in milk. Add salt, pepper, garlic and basil.
Mix in Parmesan cheese and stir until the cheese has melted.
Remove from heat. Sauce will thicken as it stands.
For one regular pizza crust (using homemade dough) I like to pre-bake the dough for 5 minutes at 475 degrees F., before adding the toppings.
After 5 minutes in the oven, remove the crust. Spread crust with an even, smooth layer of white garlic sauce. Sprinkle with cheese, chicken, and vegetables.
Return to oven at 475 degrees F for about 10-12 more minutes, or until golden brown.
