Chicken Alfredo Pizza

We have been on a pizza kick lately.  I make it almost every week for the kids but I get tired of the standard pepperoni and cheese so we have been trying different kinds.  I found a lot of good ideas at blogchef and loved his take on pizzas.  This is definitely not what I am use to but it has great Italian flavor and the adults really enjoyed it.

1  pizza crust (you can buy one or make one here)
1 1/2 c. fresh broccoli florets
 2 c. mozzarella cheese
Alfredo Sauce-
4 tablespoons butter
¼ teaspoon salt
1 dash ground black pepper
4 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
¾ cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
Garlic Butter-
2 tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove (minced)
1 pinch dried rosemary
1 pinch salt
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
¼ teaspoon dried rosemary
¼ teaspoon thyme
¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt

* In a small bowl combine all chicken seasoning ingredients and mix well. Season chicken breasts well on both sides with seasoning mixture. Cook chicken anyway you choose; grill, in frying pan on stovetop, etc. Cook chicken until its fully cooked and cut into small pieces. Set aside.  (I used canned chicken and then added the seasonings to it because I didn't have time to cook my chicken.)

* In a small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Blend in salt, pepper and flour. Stir in milk and Parmesan cheese. Simmer stirring constantly until the mixture becomes thick. Remove from heat. Cover and set aside.
* In small microwaveable bowl, melt butter. Stir in garlic, salt and rosemary.  Set aside.
* Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees (or according to your pizza crust instructions). To assemble pizza- lay out pizza crust on a 16” pizza pan. Spread cooled garlic butter over the entire crust except the edges. Spread on the Alfredo sauce. Top with chicken and broccoli florets. Top with cheese. Bake in the oven 16-18 minutes (or according to your directions) or until the crust is browned.  Serve.
