Chicken Alfredo Pizza-Pizza of the Month!

We don't have Olive Garden restaurants in my area anymore. I remember we always used to go there to celebrate any occasion. Mark's 1st birthday was celebrated there! After they closed down here, we have made a point to visit the Olive Garden anytime we are in the US. A few years back, if my memory serves right, January 2007 we were in Orlando and Mark ordered Chicken Alfredo pizza for himself. The pizza looked so good and it was truly delish. After that day forward, he has ordered this pizza mostly every time we are in the US and we go to the US at least twice a year! So this was on back of my head to replicate the recipe and create my version of this very popular pizza. When I made this for Sunday supper, I did get kudos! First of all, it looked even better than the original and for sure, it had much more chicken than the original! I was out of cream so I used bottled alfredo sauce. But I do believe my alfredo sauce is way better than bottled one.

Make this your family favourite also!
