Pizza #22 Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo
Sam loves alfredo sauce, so it should come as no surprise that this pizza was her idea. She had been lobbying for it for the past few pizzas and I finally gave in. Chicken and broccoli are alfredo’s natural allies and were a no-brainer for this pizza. For chicken, we used perdue packaged precooked Italian seasoned chicken, which was very good even though I was skeptical at first. For broccoli, we used steamer-bag frozen broccoli; which was a mistake. The frozen broccoli just carries too much moisture. I learned this from previous pizzas, but gave into a moment of laziness. Next time I will make the extra effort and get fresh broccoli crowns.
The alfredo had mixed results. While tasty, it got a bit thinner than we expected. In addition, the alfredo was very rich and heavy tasting. It had that quality of some foods that even though you enjoy it; after a piece or two you’re sick of it.
