    Has anyone tried Alfredo pizza?

    I used to get one years ago. It came with ham and mushrooms on it. I remember it as being a great combination.

    Of course the sauce was Alfredo not tomato.

    I must do this!

    How bout some good Alfredo sauce recipes?

    Give em up people.

    I leave it in your hands!

    Remember: I trust you gals and guys!

    Hi Dave,
    Over here we have a pizza crowd who make a great (well I always get one when desperate for a quick and easy meal) called Dangerous mushroom. It is a tomato based, garlic sauce and mushrooms with almost no cheese. Very tasty.
    Consequently, when I get the Pompeii going, I always make a Meat Lovers (with all different types of processed meats) and Dangerous mushroom pizza as first off the rank.

      My families favorite has been a chicken bacon ranch pizza which Is always the first to get eaten. For the sauce I buy the ranch powder and add to sour cream, that way its not too overpowering.

          I like white pizzas which are just EVO and good mozzarella -- plus your topping. I also like single topping pizzas (very traditional), such as mushrooms, potatoes, olive, caper/anchovy, cored and diced tomatoes.

          But, you gotta have good oil and cheese to make it work.

          Nice.

            Many NY white pizzas are made by whipping ricotta and heavy cream or sour cream instead of alfredo. You could also go the route of olive oil with fresh mozzarella dipped in heavy cream...

              Or, you can roll ricotta into the edge of the pizza -- just on one side.

                  Re: White Pizza

                  Here a 'Pizza Bianca' consists solely of good quality olive oil, salt and rosemary - at least this was how it was described at the Rustic Italian Pizza cooking class I went to recently. It was used in lieu of dry biscuits to have with prosciutto, jamon, cheese etc as pre-dinner 'nibbles'. Yum!

                  Does the term 'white pizza' in the US refer to any pizza topping that doesn't have tomato sauce?

                  Just trying to get my head around cultural differences in terminology again ...

                    Hey Paul,

                    Good point. I think the term white pizza can mean quite a few things, but there is definitely an Italian pizza called Pizza Bianca. It's roots can be traced back to Rome, and it is a long pizza made with olive oil and salt (and perhaps some Rosemary). The pizza is a meter long, and sliced, weighed and sold by the piece. It it is similar to the Tuscan schiaciatta. Emphasis on the good olive oil.

                    Here is a link to Campo de Fiori in Rome. I've never eaten there, but know folks who have said their Pizza Bianca is perfect. They even teach restaurants outside of Italy how to make Pizza Bianca.

                    Check out the meter long pizza peel.

                      Thanks, James.

                      Yes the Pizza Bianca prepared at the class was long and narrow - a bit like Turkish Bread except thinner. And only the best South Australian olive oil!

                      I'd also recommend the bakery at the Campo de Fiori - it is unique. I'm still amazed at how the bakers handle those extraordinary long peels, and the pizze were so long, they even required purpose-built racks to cool on. They cook in batches, so it's worth getting there when they're removing them from the oven - very entertaining!

                      Paul.

                        I made a very nice white pizza last weekend when family was in town...I actually saw it on the "pizza" episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay on Food Network. The guy that made it was a bit annoying, but the pizza was good...

                        - spread about 2-3 tbsp of heavy cream on pizza dough
                        - spread a bit of fior di latte on the cream
                        - add some pancetta (cooked or not - you decide)
                        - then add some thin sliced zucchini or mushrooms

                        Cook and eat...was very nice. I was surprised by plain cream as the "sauce" but it tasted great.

                        Also - on the episode of Throwdown (tivo it!), the oven they have the final cook off (with two openings!) was built by Salvatore Olivella..who now has a place in Dallas.

                          Damn, I missed a pizza throwdown??? I watch (or record) that show religiously...love to see Bobby get his @#%^ handed to him. He is a great chef, but I never cared for his arrogance on the original Iron Chef...he was a bit too disrespectful and full of himself in the early years.
                          Mario Batali - almost brings me to tears when he loses, I've never seen a dish of his that I wouldn't pay dearly for...Arrogant as well, just more of my kind of food.

                            The recipe for this is simple,

                            1/2 cup Alfredo sauce (from 15-oz jar)
                            2 cups diced cooked chicken
                            1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
                            1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend or mozzarella cheese



                            1 Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 15x10-inch or larger dark or nonstick cookie sheet with shortening. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet. Starting at center, press out dough into 15x10-inch rectangle. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven.
