A homemade chicken spinach alfredo pizza has been sliced and the pieces pulled apart.

My daughter is simply obsessed with our quick and easy homemade Alfredo sauce. It makes a batch too big for one single pasta dinner so we usually have a cup leftover in the fridge.

I'm sure our family isn't alone with wondering what to do with that little bit of extra cooked chicken in the fridge that isn't enough for a full meal.

This homemade pizza recipe is the perfect solution for using up those little bits of ingredients hanging around.

But you know what?? It is so delicious that you just might find yourself making Alfredo sauce just so you can have this dinner!

What Do You Need To Make This?

The ingredients for a homemade chicken spinach alfredo pizza are on the counter: a bowl of spinach, shredded cheese, chopped chicken, and homemade alfredo sauce.

The ingredients for this chicken alfredo pizza couldn't be easier:

  • Alfredo sauce: I highly recommend making our favorite Alfredo recipe. It's so easy, the kids can do it. You'll only need a cup of it so you can save the rest for making this Creamy Pesto Alfredo Chicken Casserole or the classic Freezer-Friendly Chicken Alfredo Rice Casserole.
  • Cooked chicken: Grab a rotisserie chicken from the store, use whatever leftovers you've got, or take just 15 minutes to make these fantastic chicken tenderloins in the air fryer.
  • Fresh baby spinach: Grab a pre-washed tub or bag of spinach from the grocery store.
  • Shredded mozarella: You could use the bagged variety, but we love an easy-melt block of fresh mozzarella from the deli section. Grate it by hand in just a minute, it melts and tastes so much better.
  • Sliced provolone cheese: I keep a package of this in the fridge for all our pizza baking. It is the best pizza cheese ever.
  • Pizza dough: I highly recommend making your own, it only takes a few minutes of prep time, especially if you have a bread maker. However, you could also buy dough from the grocery or use a pre-baked pizza crust.

How Do You Layer the Ingredients?

First, roll out your pizza dough to a 12-inch circle.

Brush 1 tbsp olive oil around the edges of the pizza.

Then spread 1 cup of Alfredo sauce over the pizza.

Recipe FAQs:

Is spinach on pizza healthy?

Absolutely, this fresh baby spinach is an excellent way to sneak in some dark leafy greens to your family's diet. The rest of the pizza is more of a treat but this can be a great way of introducing the flavor of cooked spinach to fussy eaters.

Can you put raw spinach on pizza?

Yes! You'll notice the amount of spinach that is called for in this recipe will look like a LOT but spinach wilts down as it cooks. By layering the spinach underneath the cheese, you're preventing it from burning. The hot cheese will help glue the spinach to the pizza.

The finished chicken spinach alfredo pizza has been sliced and a few pieces pulled apart so you can see the melted cheese.

How Do I Get the Pizza In and Out of the Oven?

This method for baking homemade pizza will give you the crispiest crust but requires just a little care to avoid spillage in your oven.

Assemble the pizza on a piece of parchment paper and use a metal baking pan to transfer the pizza with the parchment on and off the hot pizza stone in your oven. The stone stays in the oven the entire time, the parchment is simply the delivery service.

Let the hot stone cool inside the oven to avoid any accidental burns.

Variations

We love this chicken alfredo pizza as is, but there's also room to change things up sometimes.

TOTAL TIME 27 minutes
PREP TIME 15 minutes
COOK TIME 12 minutes
YIELD 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 batch homemade pizza crust dough See notes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup Alfredo sauce See notes
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slices of provolone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken cut into small chunks

Instructions

  • Place a pizza stone on the center rack of your oven and preheat it to 450°F for at least 30 min.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the pizza. Roll your pizza dough out to a 12-inch circle and transfer it to a piece of parchment paper.
  • Brush a tablespoon of olive oil around the center edge of the dough to help the crust brown.
  • Spread the alfredo sauce over the middle of the pizza.
  • Top with the chopped fresh spinach.
  • Sprinkle half the shredded cheese over the spinach and sprinkle the cooked chicken evenly over the top. Cover with the remaining shredded cheese.
  • Tear the slices of provolone into smaller chunks and add them anywhere the top needs a little more cheese. Cover some of the chicken chunks but leave some exposed so you can see your toppings.
  • Slide the pizza on the parchment onto a metal baking pan. Use the pan to transfer the pizza to the hot stone in the oven. Carefully slide the parchment onto the stone directly and remove the metal pan.
  • Bake the pizza for 12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown, the cheese has melted and the pizza is nice and bubbling.
  • Carefully tug on the parchment paper to slide the pizza off the stone and onto the metal pan for bringing the pizza out of the oven. Let cool briefly, slice and serve warm.

Recipe Notes

Pizza Crust Notes:
I highly recommend making homemade pizza dough for this recipe. It takes just minutes in a bread machine and makes a world of difference in the quality of the final pizza.
However, you can substitute a fresh pizza dough or a pre-made pizza crust from your local grocery if you prefer.
Alfredo Sauce Notes:
I highly recommend making our favorite Alfredo sauce recipe from scratch. It only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes. You can use half of it for another dinner and one half for this recipe.
However, you can also substitute your favorite prepared Alfredo from the grocery.
Chicken Notes:
You can use whatever leftover cooked chicken you have on hand for this recipe. You could also use shredded rotisserie chicken but I highly recommend this super-quick healthy chicken tenderloin air fryer recipe.
