Change up pizza night with this easy and flavorful Garlic Chicken Pizza with white sauce.
One of the easiest meals to plan is pizza night. Everyone is happy when I answer the unending question of “What’s for dinner tonight?” with “pizza.” If I ever want to feel like a hero in my own house, I make pizza for dinner.
The boys just want cheese pizza. They will tolerate pepperoni, but cheese reigns supreme. Jared and I, however, require more for our refined palates. 😉 My favorite make-at-home pizza is Garlic Chicken Pizza with white sauce.
I used to buy a pre-made crust. Now I make Homemade Pizza Dough every Friday for pizza night. However, we like a crispy-thin crust for garlic chicken pizza. Either one will work great for this pizza recipe.
You only need one chicken breast for a whole pizza. The chicken I bought must have been pumping iron in the yard, because the one breast I had was HUGE.
It’s easier to cut chicken into cubes if the chicken breast is still slightly frozen
The beauty in this recipe is its simplicity. Just a few ingredients come together to make the chicken full of flavor.
- pizza crust-use your favorite store bought crust or make your own with this easy Homemade Pizza Dough recipe
- white pizza sauce-use jarred white sauce from the store, or try making your own delicious alfredo sauce
- cheese-to keep it a truly “white” pizza, use white cheeses like mozzarella, Romano, Parmesan or other Italian blends
- chicken breast-1 chicken breast is plenty for a single pizza
- garlic cloves-I can tell you how many, but garlic is something you can just measure with your heart 🙂
- red/purple onion-the mild flavor of a red onion goes so well with chicken
- dried oregano-or use your favorite Italian seasonings blend
You can top the pizza with raw garlic and onion and let it cook in the oven, or sauté it with the meat. Personally, I prefer to sweat the onions and garlic a bit and cook it all together with the chicken.
Smash a garlic clove under the flat side of the knife to make it easier to remove the paper
After the chicken is cooked, grab your pizza crust, some alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese and you’re ready to take pizza night up a notch with this Garlic Chicken White Pizza!

I am terrible at breaking down a whole chicken. I don’t even want to attempt it anymore. I either buy chicken breasts or cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker until it falls off the bone.
Michelle @ The Complete Savorist says
Squash, pineapple, and garlic, which is rather embarrassing since I cut garlic almost every day, but they are just so small.
Amanda Sakovitz says
Squash is the hardest for me.
Serge B says
Corn is the hardest to cut
Jillian Too says
I always have a hard time with onion because my eyes water. I have a tough time with vegetables I don’t use very often like artichoke.
Christina @ Juggling Real Food and Real LIfe says
Delicious recipe Nicole. A great set of knives makes life so much easier. I really struggle with chopping mangos and sweet potatoes. Maybe if I had better knives, I would cut them more often.
Victoria @ Creative Home Keeper says
Butternut squash for sure!

Michelle Martin says
I have a hard time prepping a lot of things, but poultry, as in a while chicken, is my biggest struggle right now!
I hate cutting magoes. One of the twins loves them, so I buy them for her; however, I usually just make her eat it like an apples because I get sick of fighting wirh it.
Wow. Those knives look awesome!!! My knives are so dull. Would love knives that sharpen themselves!
I’m pretty much knife challenged!! I never know what knife to use for anything!
