Chicken Alfredo and Pesto French Bread Pizza

Chicken Alfredo and Pesto French Bread Pizza

Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 15 minutes

Five ingredients and fifteen minutes are all you need to get this delicious dinner on the table. Homemade Alfredo sauce and pesto are perfect, but when time is tight, the store-bought versions work well. Add garlic or other seasonings to your liking, and a fresh green salad is great to round out this meal.

What you'll need

  • 1 16oz loaf French bread, I use 3 six-inch French-style hoagie rolls
  • 8 ounces cooked chicken breast, from a store-bought rotisserie chicken is perfect
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup jarred Alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 cup jarred pesto sauce

Helpful Tip:

Let pesto stand until oil has risen to the top. Strain as much oil as possible from the pesto before using.
