The Imperfections of Perfection

This pizza was so good!
The combination of chicken, bacon, and Alfredo is delicious - you should try it.
out of the many Alfredo sauces I have had this is now at the top of the list!
Here is my imperfect picture of a pizza that tastes of perfection. 
(My dough went funny over the sides)
I wanted to point out that everything you make doesn't have to look like it just popped out of a magazine - as long as it tastes so yummy you can't stand it!



Chicken Bacon Alfredo Pizza

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp. Butter
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp. Onion Powder
1 Tbsp. Flour
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. Heavy Cream (can be substituted for half and half)
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. Milk
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Nonstick cooking spray
1 (16 ounce) Tube Refrigerated pizza dough
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups cooked Chicken, cubed
8 slices Bacon, cooked and chopped
2 Tbsp. chopped Green Onions
Directions:
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and mix in garlic powder and onion powder. Whisk in flour and stir constantly for one minute.  

Slowly whisk in your cream and milk. Bring the mixture to a gentle bubble and allow to gently boil for 20 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add Parmesan, season with salt and pepper then return to warm heat, stirring occasionally until ready to use.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough into a 13-14 inch round crust.  Place dough on a greased (using nonstick cooking spray) pizza pan or baking dish. Spread Alfredo sauce over dough coming within about 1 inch of the edge.  Sprinkle on Mozzarella and top with chicken, bacon and green onion.  

Bake for 14-16 minutes or until crust is golden brown.  Cut into slices and serve.
