Spinach Bacon Alfredo French Bread Pizza

Several weeks ago we had the most beautiful weather.  The sun was shining, the wind wasn't blowing (which says a lot around here), and the temperatures were in the 70s.

Everyone at this house was ecstatic. We spent every possible minute outside because it doesn't last for long around here (it lasted 3 days and oh how marvelous they were). 

So we decided one night to pack the kids up with some sports equipment and head out to the park with a picnic dinner.  I was in charge of the dinner part so after looking around for a little bit I settled on this bad boy.

I wanted to do something different than sandwiches or wraps (the kids get those almost everyday in their lunch bag) but something that was easy to transport.  This was the perfect choice. 

We were all in love with it.  The kids even liked the spinach on it. I mean really how can you go wrong with bacon....and chicken....and alfredo sauce....all on homemade french bread.  Mmmm so delicious.

Spinach Bacon Alfredo French Bread Pizza

(click here for printable version)

1/2 loaf French Bread (I used this homemade version)
1 cup Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
1/3 cup sliced mushrooms, optional
1 cup cooked, chopped bacon
1 large cooked and chopped/sliced chicken breast (to make it extra quick I used canned chicken)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut bread in half lengthwise. Lay each one on a cookie sheet. Spread Alfredo sauce evenly over the top of each half. Use as much or as little sauce as you would like. Then layer spinach, sliced mushrooms, bacon, and chicken until it reaches your desired amount.

2. Evenly sprinkle mozzarella over the pizzas and bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove, let cool slightly, slice and serve. Enjoy!
