white pizza

Let me share with you my new obsession...white pizza.

I'm a huge fan of regular pizza - you know, the kind slathered with tomato sauce, loaded with meats and veggies, and dripping with melted mozzarella.  Yum.  But lately I've been trying to eat a low-acid diet, which means no tomato sauce.  We've also been trying to stick to a pretty strict budget, which means no red meat overloads.  I thought my pizza days were over for a while...until now, that is.

I love this pizza because it's so simple.  You take a pizza crust - I make my own (see recipe here), but you could also use a mix, refrigerated dough, or a store-bought prepared crust.  I think making it homemade is about as simple as it gets, so I stick with that.

Slather some Alfredo sauce onto your crust (yep...I used it straight from the jar).  Toss on some veggies and cooked chicken (great way to use up leftovers and SO cheap).  Then sprinkle on some mozzarella and pop it in the oven.  Hello gorgeous!
