Chicken Alfredo Pizza with Wheat Crust

Here is one of our favorite pizzas. I make the crust in the bread machine by throwing in all the ingredients on the dough cycle; however, I will post the actual recipe from Weight Watchers in case you don't use a bread machine. :-)

Crust:

1 1/2 c. warm (105-115°) water
1 t. sugar
1 package active dry yeast
1 T. olive oil
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 1/2 t. salt

In a 2 cup measuring jug, combine water and sugar. Sprinkle in the yeast and let stand about 5 minutes, till foamy. Stir in the oil.

In a food processor, combine the flour and salt. With machine running, scrape the yeast mixture through the feed tube; pulse until the dough forms a ball, about 1 minute. If necessary, turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly until smooth and elastic.

Spray a large bowl with nonstick spray; place dough in bowl. Cover bowl lightly with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm spot until double in size, about 1 hour.

Punch down dough, then roll out in either one large pizza or two small round pizzas.

(now my notes)

Prick dough several times with a fork, then place in 500° oven for about 10 minutes to par-bake. If you like a thinner crust, eliminate this step.

Spread homemade or jarred (I use Ragu Light Parmesan Alfredo) alfredo sauce over crust. Top with cooked shredded chicken, and mushrooms or other desired toppings. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over entire pizza and return to 500° oven for about 15 minutes till hot and cheese is melted.

Good stuff!!! Let me know if you give it a try! :-) And for more wonderful recipes, check out Gayle's recipe swap!!
