Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 ¼ cup Quick Alfredo Sauce or jarred Alfredo sauce

  • 1 9 ounce package frozen mixed vegetables

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed

  • 2 cup shredded cooked chicken breast*

  • ½ cup shredded Italian cheese blend

  • 2 tablespoon milk

  • 8 ounce fresh pizza dough**

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)

Quick Alfredo Sauce

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 2 cup whole milk

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 2-quart square baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. In a large skillet stir together Quick Alfredo Sauce, vegetables, and thyme. Heat and stir just until boiling. Stir in chicken and Italian cheese blend; heat through. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll pizza dough into a 10-inch square. Place dough square on top of hot mixture in baking dish. Fold excess dough under until even with the edges of the dish. Press along edges to seal.

  3. Brush dough lightly with milk and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving.

Quick Alfredo Sauce

  1. In a medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic and whisk until smooth. Whisk in milk slowly, then add the Parmesan cheese and pepper. Continue to stir until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Makes 4 cups.

*Tip:

Use deli-roasted chicken, leftover cooked chicken, or poached or sautéed chicken.

**Tip:

Look at an Italian market or specialty food store for fresh pizza dough.
