Recipe Features

  • Fuss-Free Dinner: I stand by this statement. This dinner is fuss free, leaves minimal dishes, and cannot be messed up.
  • Easy to Customize: One of the joys of DIY pizza is you can add any topping you like!
  • Perfect 30-Minute Dinner: Ready in 30 or less, this is a staple in our monthly menu.

I love pizza. My husband loves pizza. My son loves pizza. Which means we eat a LOT of pizza in this house. Eating out isn’t always an option, and I dread the task of making homemade dough, which is where these homemade individual pizzas come in.

Using a flatbread, or pita, for the crust is pure genius, and honestly something I accidentally stumbled upon when I was fresh out of flour one day. I searched the pantry and found our flatbread. Instant canvas for all pizza creations. And it TASTES GOOD.

I get a whopping 5 star rating anytime my family sees this on the menu.

What is Chicken Alfredo Pizza?

Chicken Alfredo pizza is a pizza that uses a white sauce base vs a tomato sauce. The toppings are typically cooked chicken, basil or spinach, and fresh tomatoes.

Chicken Alfredo Pizza Ingredients

You can buy canned Alfredo sauce and use that as your base, but I highly recommend making your own. You’ll be surprised how quick and easy it is and the flavor is infinitely better. Your family will praise your cooking skills and you can keep the secret of how simple it really is. Here is what you need for the sauce:

  • Butter– I always opt for salted butter, but use what you have on hand.
  • Garlic– Fresh garlic that has been minced is best, but I have used pre minced garlic in a pinch. 
  • Red pepper flakes– Just a touch. They add a tiny bit of heat to a very rich and creamy sauce. 
  • All-purpose flour– The thickening agent for your sauce! Just one tablespoon gives you the perfect consistency. 
  • Heavy cream– No heavy cream? No problem! Substitute for milk. You will have a slightly less thick sauce, but equally delicious.
  • Parmesan – Parmesan adds a little salt/nutty flavor. Be sure you use fresh shredded and not the canned version.

Best Toppings for Chicken Pizza

Alright, you’re ready with your sauce and flatbread base, but what toppings go well on a chicken pizza? Let’s breakdown a few options that we LOVE.

  • Grilled Chicken, Baked Chicken, or Shredded Chicken.
  • Bacon: I mean, everything tastes better with bacon, am I right?
  • Fresh Produce: tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, onions… You can add almost anything onto this pizza with rave reviews.
  • Cheese: Here’s a secret. Because there is already cheese in the sauce, you could technically skip this topping. However, a little shredded mozzarella never hurt anyone and gives you that beautiful stringy finish.

How to Make A Personal Pan Pizza with Flatbread

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a small saucepan combine the butter, garlic, and pepper flakes.
  3. Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour followed by the cream.
  4. Cook for a minute or two or until slightly thickened.
  5. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the shredded Parmesan. Mix until the cheese is fully melted.
  6. Place the flat bread onto a baking tray that is lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
  7. Spread a thin layer of the homemade Alfredo sauce followed by a sprinkle of mozzarella.
  8. Layer the rest of your ingredients on top.
  9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Recipe Tips:

This recipe is so easy to make. Here are a few tips that might make the process a little smoother.

  • Make your sauce ahead of time. Keep it stored in the refrigerator for two to three days. Heat slightly before spreading onto your base. 
  • Cook your bacon in the oven. Preheat to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and add the bacon in an even layer. Bake 15 minutes or until desired crispness is reached. 
  • No flatbread? No problem. Substitute with a homemade pizza crust
