Grilled Chicken and Bacon Pizza with Garlic Cream Sauce

Pizza has never tasted so good with this garlicky sauce, grilled chicken, and bacon!

I don't make a lot of chicken pizza simply because a lot of the bases are ranch and the boys will not eat ranch period. This pizza recipe caught my eye because of the garlic cream sauce. I am definitely one of those people who puts 8 to 10 cloves worth of garlic into most recipes because I love garlic. Thankfully, Nick and the big kids do too. You can never go wrong with bacon too, so I knew this would be a keeper. I opted for the wine for the sauce and used a pinot grigio and it was fantastic.

What you need:
For the garlic cream sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine, beer, or chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
For the pizza:
  • 2 chicken breasts, grilled and diced
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Your favorite recipe for pizza dough
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 7 slices mozzarella cheese
  1. For the sauce: in a skillet, melt butter and oil over medium heat. Add garlic and shallot and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Add flour and whisk. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes while stirring.
  3. Slowly add wine and whisk. Then slowly add milk and whisk. Season to taste.
  4. Add basil. Stir and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat.
  5. Roll out pizza dough onto a pizza pan or stone. Prick all over with a fork.
  6. Spread prepared sauce on top and then add chicken, bacon, colby jack, and mozzarella.
  7. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 15 minutes.
