Pizza Night - Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza

I have decided that every week I am going to try a new pizza recipe using the Pillsbury thin pizza crust. It tastes good and is so EZ to use! This is my latest pizza recipe I tried. It is quite yummy! Happy pizza night to ya! Next I'm trying a buffalo chicken pizza recipe! Love me some buffalo chicken!


1 tube refrigerated pizza crust
1/2 cup Alfredo sauce (I used Ragu Roasted Garlic Parmesan)
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
10 breaded chicken nuggets, thawed and cut in half (we had a rotisserie chicken that needed to be eaten and I used that)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
You can add veggies to it but I didn't.

Unroll dough into a greased 15x10x1 baking pan (I used a pizza stone and did not grease); flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Spread with Alfredo sauce; sprinkle with garlic salt and Swiss cheese. Top with ham, chicken nuggets and mozzarella. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden brown (took mine about 12 minutes – just watch it).

These are the changes I’m gonna make next time I make this because I do this when I make homemade pizza dough (makes crispier crust):

Place dough on pizza stone and roll out. Prick with fork. Drizzle crust with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake 10-12 minutes. Spread layer of sauce over crust and add other ingredients per recipe. Bake 10-12 minute more. I may try Canadian bacon too.

Most Recent Ornaments Painted

I finally got off my lazy butt and managed to get a few new lightbulb ornaments painted. I wanted a snowman and gingie to go with what I'm calling my "Patriotic Series." These are my own designs. I think the next patriotic ornie I will paint in this series will be a bear. I'm thinking about maybe selling patterns next year of some of my designs. I so love designing and is like visiting an old friend whenever I pick up the paintbrush. It takes me awhile to figure out what I want to paint but once I get going I can't stop. Enjoy!
