Friday night is always pizza night in our house. Sometimes that means a homemade pizza. Sometimes that means we order in. And sometimes that means we just pop a frozen pizza in the oven, but pizza is always on the menu on Fridays!

This means I’ve had a lot of pizzas in my lifetime, and I can safely say that one of my favorite pizzas is this classic Chicken Spinach Alfredo Pizza. We’ve been making it since the early days of our marriage, when I happened to stumble on a recipe for Turkey Alfredo pizza in an issue of Cooking Light. We pretty much never have turkey breast just kicking around (except right after that one particular turkey-tastic holiday), so we made the swap for chicken, tweaked a few other items, and we’ve been loving this combo ever since.

Unfortunately, Chicken Spinach Alfredo Pizza is such a mouthful of a pizza name. So years and years ago, when we made this pizza for the first time, we chopped the name and now it is lovingly known as “Spalfrizza” in our house.

Feel free to call this pizza whatever you want, but just make sure you call it somethin’, because it is killer good. If you are pinched for time, you can always use store-bought sauce for the alfredo, but I really enjoy making my easy version at home. It doesn’t take long and for some reason, I feel like it is healthier. It probably actually isn’t, but believing you are healthy is half the battle, right?
