Do you ever order an appetizer as your main course?
I saw this Grilled Chicken Alfredo Flatbread Pizza on the menu at Olive Garden and it looked amazing! It was listed as an appetizer, but I actually ordered it as my main dish. It was the perfect “light” dinner and was perfect served with Olive Garden’s famous salad and breadsticks.
I decided to come home and recreate this dish myself – it’s easy! With a couple short cuts (use pita breads as the base and use jarred alfredo sauce), this dish really does come together in a matter of minutes.
How to make chicken flatbread pizzas
These flatbread pizzas are so simple to make!
Start by spreading alfredo sauce on a flatbread. Top with mozzarella cheese and then add toppings to your liking (we used red pepper, tomatoes, and green onions – just like they do at the restaurant.)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and let the pizzas bake for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Cut into bite size pieces to serve as an appetizer or serve as a pizza for a main dish.
Tips for making Grilled Chicken Flatbread pizzas
- I used flatbreads from my grocery store, but sometimes I will use pita breads. Both work perfectly!
- If you don’t feel like grilling chicken, you can buy cooked grilled chicken strips at most grocery stores. It makes this recipe even easier!
- If you have picky eaters, let each person add their own toppings to their liking.
- If desired, you can top these pizzas with some fresh basil – it’s delicious!
- Fresh parmesan cheese also tastes great on these pizzas.
- Before assembling the pizzas, toast your flatbread or pita bread for a crispier crust.
How to roast a bell pepper
For this recipe, I would highly recommend roasting the pepper so that it’s a true copycat recipe. However, these flatbreads will still be delicious even without roasting the pepper.
Roasting a pepper is simple:
- Preheat your oven to broil.
- Slice the bell pepper and brush lightly with olive oil.
- Line a large baking sheet with foil and lay your pepper slices in a single layer on the sheet.
- Roast peppers under the broiler until the skin starts to turn dark (about 4-5 minutes – watch carefully so that they do not burn!). Cut into smaller pieces and use as a topping for your pizza.
Other toppings you could add to flatbread pizzas:
If you don’t care for peppers, tomatoes, and onions, feel free to try these other toppings!
- Cooked sausage
- Black olives
- Switch out the alfredo sauce for BBQ sauce
- Ham (or Canadian Bacon)
