Chicken Alfredo Pizza

I just love this pizza, I may be a little obsessed! My friend and I made this all of the time back in our college days. The first time we made it we were trying to impress some boys. It worked for her, she eventually married the guy. And now I can't count how many guys I have made this for...we will see if it ever works for me!

Pizza Crust:
I add all of these ingredients in order to my bread maker and use the dough setting.
1 cup warm water
1 tsp. Sugar
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp Kosher Salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp yeast
Make an indention at the top and make sure the yeast doesn't touch the water.

I also add a dash of garlic salt and a mixture of dry herbs. Push the start button and walk away! I use my stone to bake it. I put it in the oven at 425 degrees for about 8 minutes before putting any toppings on. Before I cook it, I put some olive oil on the crust and sprinkle with a little garlic salt, herbs and parmesan cheese. After it comes out of the oven, top it with desired toppings and cook until cheese is melted. Approximately 10-12 minutes

Alfredo Sauce
1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

(Yes I know all of those ingredients are extremely fattening, that is why it tastes so good!)

For the toppings a lot of times I just throw on what I have in my fridge. So I may use all of these or just a few.
Sauteed Chicken in a mix of dry herbs, salt and pepper. I cut the chicken up before I cook it.
Caramelized onions
Peppers (any kind)
Sun Dried Tomatoes
Sauteed Mushrooms
...or whatever you want!
