Naan Chicken Alfredo Pizza


Naan Chicken Alfredo Pizza is one of my families favorites.  It was one of those recipes that I pulled together at the last minute because of the ingredients I had on hand at the time and it became one of those meals my kids have requested over and over and I have made it many times now!  Sometimes I even have a make your own pizza bar so they can make their own pizza creations with the toppings they like best.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Naan Chicken Alfredo Pizza
4 pieces Naan bread/ or soft pita bread (I buy Naan at Costco or Sam's Club)
2 Cooked diced chicken breasts
4 oz. Cream cheese (1/2 block) softened (I use the Neufchatel cheese that is lower fat) 
1 1/2 tsp. Grated Parmesan cheese
Shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning or dry pesto seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper small pinch
1 10 oz. pkg. frozen leaf spinach thawed drained and squeezed to get liquid out
small chopped onion
diced red/yellow pepper
chopped mushrooms
tomatoes
parsley flakes (optional)

Directions:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lay 4 slices of Naan bread on large cookie sheet.  Mix softened cream cheese with grated Parmesan cheese, Italian seasonings, garlic powder, a tiny pinch of salt and coarse pepper. Spread cheese herb mixture on to Naan bread. Sprinkle with diced chicken breasts spinach and assorted chopped veggies (we used mushrooms, red peppers, onions, and small sliced tomatoes).  Press lightly into the cream cheese mixture.  Sprinkle shredded Mozzarella cheese on top and sprinkle with a few parsley flakes (for color).  Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes on center rack of oven, near end of baking turn on broiler and melt cheese a little more if desired.  Served with a nice green salad this is a quick fun dinner the whole family can have fun helping create!  Enjoy!
