Alfredo Chicken Pizza

As you read this post today, I am floating somewhere off the coast of Catalina. Hubby and I decided it was time to take a break from our daily chores, and catch some wind. So we are sailing for 3 days.  I am being responsible and getting my posts done before. So...Today I am presenting you with my absolute favorite pizza recipe ever. I could eat this every single day. It is a great meal to use leftover chicken on. I am giving the recipe from scratch, but please note you can eliminate a lot of time just by using leftover chicken. I have started having shredded chicken on hand as much as possible. I put it in the crock pot, shred it all up and it keeps in the fridge for 3 days of easy toppings on pizza, pasta, appetizers, tacos etc...

Add in flour and cook till pleasant roasted smell starts to come but should not turn into brown.
