Simple Suppers - Chicken Spinach Pizza With White Sauce



I think that making pizza is one of the very best ways to get creative in the kitchen. There are so many toppings, sauces, and kinds of pizza dough to make, that you could literally make a different pizza every night of the year.
This recipe for a chicken pizza with spinach, mushrooms, and bell peppers is one of my favorites. The white sauce is a snap to make, and you can certainly add more of your favorite toppings. One thing I have started doing is buying pizza toppings from my favorite little grocery store's salad bar. For this pizza I bought the all the toppings there, including the already cooked chicken. So easy, and a real money saver, too.
I have made my own pizza dough in the past, and I definitely want to start experimenting with making it again. I used an already made crust for this pizza, and it still very good, but nothing beats homemade.
I actually made two of these yummy pizzas, but the following recipe is for one pizza.








Ingredients to make one large pizza:

1 4oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/4 cup minced onion
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup chicken, cut up
1 cup chopped spinach
1 cup mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced red bell peppers
1 large pizza crust, homemade or store bought


Directions:

To make the sauce, stir together cream cheese, ranch dressing, onion and garlic. Spread evenly over pizza crust. Top with chicken, spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers, and cheese.
Cook in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.
