Garlic Chicken and Articoke Pizza

About 2 years ago we went to visit my sister in-law in Redmond and we had the most amazing pizza!! It was sooo good, but you know how you can just tell by looking at it you are about to gain 3 lbs? Well, I have recreated it in a much lighter and healthier version, without sacrificing the delicious flavors!


Pizza crust (I use this one or you can use your own or a refrigerated crust)
1 package McCormick Alfredo sauce mix
1/2 cup fat free milk
1 tablespoon tub butter (I use Brummel and brown butter, it is made with yogurt)
1 can artichoke hearts(in water)
2 chicken breasts, thawed
garlic powder
mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper

1. Season your chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. You want to have garlicy (is that a word?) chicken. It just really makes this pizza great! Cook your chicken over medium heat until done. Set aside.
2. Time to make your sauce. Take your package of Alfredo mix and whisk it into milk over med/high heat. Add butter. Add a about 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder too:) You want it to be nice and thick. After it has all come together, let it cook for just a minute or two over the heat then take off and let cool. It will become thicker as it cools.
3.Drain your artichokes and chop into bite size. Slice your olives too, it you want them. Shred your cooled chicken and grate your cheese.
4. Lets assemble! Ok, on your ready crust (some crusts want you to cook for a few minuets before topping so make sure you are at that step) spoon your sauce and spread around to edges. Next top with artichokes, chicken and olives. Last sprinkle your cheese on top. Sprinkle top of pizza with bit of dried oregano.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 425 oven. It is so good you won't be able to believe it until you taste this pizza!! Add a side salad and dinner is served!
