Chicken Bacon Broccoli Alfredo Pizza

We liked the chicken taco pizza we had a couple of weeks ago so much that I couldn't wait to start experimenting with different toppings using the same method. First up was an idea I saw ages ago on Courtney's blog for chicken bacon alfredo pizza. I took her idea and ran with it, adding broccoli to the topping, because I love the taste of broccoli with alfredo sauce. We liked this pizza a lot. Next up to try: BBQ and buffalo chicken versions!

Sorry for the poor photo quality. Unless I can somehow manage to get dinner on the table by 4:30 PM, it's looking like I'm going to have to start using my flash more. I wish Daylight Savings Time lasted all year!

Chicken Bacon Broccoli Alfredo Pizza
source: inspired by Cooking Up a Family

1 12-inch pre-baked thin Italian pizza crust
1/2 cup alfredo sauce (purchased, or you can get fancy and make your own)

2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
2 cups shredded mozzarella or Italian-blend cheese
6 strips of bacon, diced
1 cup cooked broccoli

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cook bacon over medium heat to desired crispness; set aside on paper towels to drain.

2. Place pizza crust on cookie sheet. Stir together chicken and alfredo sauce in a small bowl; spread over crust, stopping about one inch from the edges. Top with cheese.

3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and pizza is thoroughly heated.

4. Top with broccoli and bacon.
