Ingredients
  • 1 (3/4 pound) boneless skinless chicken breast
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 (16-ounce) ball pizza dough, store-bought
  • 2 cups baby spinach, well washed and dried
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, red and yellow
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • Olive oil, for brushing crust
Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Adjust racks to the middle of the oven. Put pizza stone in the oven to preheat while you begin the sauce.

Preheat a grill pan over medium heat.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Put the chicken on the grill pan and grill until cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and dice. Set aside.

Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant. Add the flour and cook until light blonde in color. Whisk in the cream, reduce the heat to low, and let simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in Parmesan and season lightly with salt and pepper, to taste.

Flour your work surface and roll the pizza dough into a 13-inch diameter. Carefully remove the pizza stone from the oven and put the dough on top. Ladle the sauce to cover the bottom of the pizza. Evenly top with the baby spinach, grape tomatoes, grilled chicken and the mozzarella. Brush the edge of the crust with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake the pizza until crisp and golden, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately top with another handful of spinach. Slice and serve.

    I loved the pizza. I also cut the tomatoes in half like voodoo30 did. Worked out very well. I also spread a little butter on the outside dough with a couple pinches of salt a pepper. It made an excellent crust. I will definitely make this pizza again. Thanks Patrick and Gina Neely!
    Delicious - I would suggest cutting the tomatoes in half so they don't explode in the oven or when you bite into them, but otherwise this is an excellent recipe! Way to go Neely's!
    This was a great pizza. I liked the alfredo sauce. I think I over cooked the chicken because it got a little tough as it baked on the pizza. I added black olives and fresh basil. Was very good.
    This was awesome! I sprinkled Italian seasoning on the chicken breast and grilled in a grill pan. I only used 1 cup of spinach but it wilted down so much I will use 2 cups called for next time. I also used Asiago instead of Parmesan. My husband and I snarfed the whole thing down in one sitting, not proud of that, but it was THAT GOOD!!!!
    So good and had lots of flavor. I love that it has vegetables so I don't feel so guilty about eating pizza. My husband loved it too.
    I like this recipe very much! Watch the pepper flakes especially if they are homemade. I found you can substitute the heavy cream with skim milk. It makes a little bit healthier. Also, I use the alfredo sauce for pasta too. Overall, everyone who I make this for seem to enjoy.
    this was just o.k... found it to be a bit flavorless/bland.. added bacon to it. might try it again..
    I add mushrooms and bacon to this recipe. I also use pizza yeast so I can bake it all at the same time. It is delicious and just a tad spicy. This is a favorite in our house. All our friends and family love it!
    Delicious! substituted cream though. I only had 1/2 cup of regular cream and added 1/2 cup skim milk. Was still nice and thick and creamy! Maybe lightened it up a little too, was still delish!!!
    great recipe I hate spinach so I replaced it with broccoli and it was great.
    AMAZING! Everyone in my family loved it.
    I made this pizza last night for a party and it was a hit. All of my guests were impressed that I served a homemade pizza and raved at how tasty it was. It came out of the oven looking exactly as pictured. I will make it again and again and have shared the recipe with my friends.
    great!
    Wowzers! This was great.
    Amazing!
    This was amazing and quite a quick dinner that everyone loved. It was a bit spicy for my taste, so next time we will either take out the red pepper flakes or not use quite so much.
     

     
    Deffinately a keeper!!!
    This recipe is fantastic. I use a rotisserie chicken to help speed up the Friday night dinner process. We have made this recipe numerous times.
    This recipe was amazing!!! My whole family loved it. It was a little spicy so next time I will use less red pepper.
    Delicious!
    LOVE this recipe! Absolutly delicious!!
    RUN, don't walk to your kitchen to make this recipe! It is SO easy and SO delicious! The only thing we changed was my husband grilled the chicken breast outside and we added some bacon. I used the canned Pillsbury pizza dough as well. This recipe is PHENOMENAL and definitely a keeper! I can't wait to make this again! The alfredo sauce in this recipe would be wonderful over linguine for a completely different dish. Yum!
    I love the Neely's for this recipe!! I made this pizza for my little sister's baby shower and EVERYONE loved it!! Some even say it was the best pizza they've ever tasted. I am from Memphis where there is great food but this pizza goes on the TOP of my list! Thanks!!
    My family loves this pizza. I have made this about six times now and they can't wait for me to make it again. I get the chicken from my local supermarket that has the precooked whole chickens. Makes it easier and less time consuming and their chicken is always good. Can make this pizza from start to table in 1/2 hour. Fast and yummy!
    I made this pizza for superbowl and everyone loved it!!! Love the Neelys

    This pizza was sooooo good. I will make it again. I used a store bought pizza crust and diced so Roma tomatoes. It turned out really good. I will try it with a wheat pizza crust next time. Excellent recipe!!!!
    Really good pizza... I didn't have any tomatoes so I used diced. For a family as big as mine it was simple and good!
    It looks like Mario Batali's pizza pan. Crate and Barrel sells them.
    OMG! The best pizza ever!! The alfredo sauce is so delicious (it was spicy so add whatever amount of red pepper flakes you're ok with, I'm gonna keep the recipe to use it as a pasta sauce as well. I used the Pillsbury pizza dough in a can and prebaked it for 5 mins at the temperature on the can. I also added red onion and red bell pepper as toppings. After I added toppings, it baked at the same temperature on the can for about 15 mins or until it was nice and brown on the edges. And I used a regular metal pizza pan to bake it on.
    Do you know where I can get that cool pizza stone that they use with handles?
    Great pizza and loved by my 3 sons who LOVE white pizza and this was a great spin on it! Even the spinach went over well.
