Change family pizza night with this delicious White Chicken Pizza! Grilled chicken, creamy white bechamel, pesto, peppers, spinach and mozzarella! Pizza heaven!

When friends come over to our house, we often have a “Make Your Own Pizza” night – where we put out lots of different meats, toppings and sauces. Each guest can create their own favorite pizza and it is a great way to get your dinner guests interacting and having fun!

When it comes to my turn to make a pizza – I always make the same kind: this White Chicken Pizza!

Change family pizza night with this delicious White Chicken Pizza! Grilled chicken, creamy white bechamel, pesto, peppers, spinach and mozzarella! Pizza heaven!

I start by spreading on a creamy, white Béchamel Sauce (see yesterday’s post where we show you how to make it!) over our favorite homemade perfect pizza dough. Then I swirl spoonfuls of pesto on top of the béchamel.

Finally, some grilled chicken, roasted bell peppers, wilted baby spinach and a generous sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese go on top – and it’s all baked in the oven until hot and bubbly!

You can of course – change up the toppings however you’d like. But I encourage you to try swapping out a typical red pizza sauce for some béchamel sauce the next time you make pizza. I think you’ll love it!

      Hi Stephanie – A cookie sheet or metal pizza pan would be an alternative. Hope you enjoy the recipe!
