Chicken & Cheese Pizza with white Sauce

I am not a pizza person, anything tomato sauce or with tomatoes I just won't eat. So I decided to make my own pizza, with a white cheese sauce and chicken (not a fan of ham or pepperoni either). I found a really easy recipe for a crust, that you only need to let sit for 5 minutes. No waiting for it to rise. And then I added a white cheese sauce that's actually for pasta but very good on pizza. Finally, I added pieces of cooked chicken, green onions, shredded cheese(mozzarella or cheddar, or both), and parmesan.

Recipe for pizza crust: (modified from

1 package dry active yeast (1 1/4 tsp)
1 tsp white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 F/45C)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsbp olive oil
2 tsp italian seasoning

1-Preheat oven to 450 F. In a medium bowl dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
2-Stir in flour, oil, and italian seasoning. Let rest for 5 minutes.
3-Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to lightly greased pizza Pan.
4- Add sauce and desired toppings. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Recipe for White Cheese Sauce:  (don't remember where I got this from)

8 ounce package of cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup milk
1 dash ground nutmeg
1 dash pepper
2 tsp italian seasoning
3 cloves of garlic, minced

On Medium heat, mix cream cheese, milk and permesan. Stirring occasionally, until sauce is smooth.
Stir in nutmeg, pepper, italian seasoning, and garlic. Remove from heat, and let sit for a couple minutes. Spread on pizza crust. This will cover 2 pizzas.

Till next time, thanks for reading!
