Garlic-Alfredo Pizza

I love to make home-made pizza.  But sometimes I get tired of the same ‘ole recipe.  Thus, I try to recreate one from a pizza place that I really like.  Lately we have discovered a place called Fatty’s Pizza.  They have really good pizza for a decent price.  And they have a garlic-alfredo pizza that is absolutely delicious.  So I did a little research and tried it out on my husband.  He said, “This tastes like that one pizza from Fatty’s.” Success!! So here is how I did it:

Melt 4 Tbsp of butter in a small sauce pan.  Add 1 clove of garlic – chopped really fine.  (The term “clove” is ambiguous as some are large, some are small.  I used one that was about as wide as my thumb.  And I didn’t think it was too much.  More would have been okay too.)   On low to med-low heat, stirring constantly, simmer the garlic-butter sauce until garlic is soft. (If the garlic is starting to turn brown, go no farther. It will taste fine, but you’re getting close to burning it.) Let it cool.

In the meantime, roll out your pizza dough. I make whole-wheat dough in my breadmaker using the recipe in my breadmaker recipe book.  But any crust will do. Spread the garlic-butter on the crust and then add the alfredo sauce. (Sometimes the alfredo and butter don’t mix very well, just do your best to even it out.)  Add shredded or chopped chicken, tomatoes, onions or whatever you would like and add a light layer of mozzarella cheese.  I just put chicken and cheese on this particular one. Bake at 350* for 15 minutes!
