Skinny Spinach and Chicken Alfredo Pizza

I have ordered this pizza at our local pizza place, and was determined to create a version that is lower in points, yet still delicious.  Here’s what I came up with.  And I aplogize, but I dont’ have a lot of step by step photos for this one, because my family was hungry!

I started with a premade pizza crust.  This pizza has two parts basically – the alfredo sauce, and the chicken topping.  And, it was really good as is, but I really thinking it would be even more awesome with some fresh sliced tomatoes on top!

Start by preparing the spinach alfredo sauce.

Cook the chicken.

Assemble the pizza.

Sauce, chicken, fresh mozzarella cheese.

Bake until golden brown, and serve!
