Chicken Alfredo Pizza

This is some incredible pizza right here!  I made this on New Years Eve (a little behind here, haha) and it was a perfect yummy dinner to celebrate a special night!  I've since made it again for a girls night and everyone was a fan!  The sauce is incredibly easy to whip up and makes the pizza.  As you can see we only added bacon to half (mainly because we burnt it) and I didn't even add it the second time I made it because I don't think its necessary (same with the chives).  This pizza is delish!

Chicken Alfredo Pizza
pizza dough
1 1/2 cups cooked or grilled, shredded chicken (I boiled and shredded one chicken breast)
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1 Tbsp flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp heavy cream (I used half & half)
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp whole milk (I used skim milk)
2 oz finely shredded Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
Salt and freshly ground black or white pepper, to taste
4 oz shredded Mozzarella cheese (1 cup) (I used fontina)
6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped (optional)
1 1/2 Tbsp chopped green onions (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Melt butter along with garlic powder and onion powder in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. While whisking vigorously, slowly pour in cream and milk. Bring mixture just to a gentle bubble stirring constantly. Allow mixture to gently boil for 20 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add in Parmesan cheese, season with salt and pepper to taste then return to warm heat and stir occasionally until ready to use.
Stretch out dough on pan or baking stone.  Pour half of the Alfredo sauce over dough, then use the back of a spoon to spread into an even layer. Sprinkle shredded chicken over sauce layer, then pour remaining sauce evenly over chicken. Sprinkle top evenly with Mozzarella cheese then sprinkle with chopped bacon.  Bake in preheated oven 14 - 16 minutes until crust is nicely golden. Remove from oven, garnish top evenly with green onions, cut into slices and serve warm.
