Creamy Chicken Deep-Dish Pizza

    2 hours 50 min

    This is a rich deep-dish pizza that calls for a creamy sauce instead of the usual tomato. Using an array of shop-bought ingredients means you have time to make your own pizza base, which is both easy and immensely satisfying!

    This pizza is really great. I followed the recipe exactly as given, except after baking I brushed the edge of the crust with a little garlic butter to keep it softer. This is very tasty and easy. Definitely will be making this again and again and... I think almost any vegetable could be substituted in this recipe. (P.S. Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Sauce is made by Ragu and is with the other jarred spaghetti sauces.)  -  22 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great tasting and super easy recipe! I used Boboli for the crust and Classico alfredo sauce that I added minced garlic to. Topped with organic fire roasted tomatoes, mozarella, grilled chicken breast pieces and green onion. Yum!  -  19 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
