White Garlic Chicken Pizza

This white garlic chicken pizza reminded me that I really need to eat more white sauce pizza. I usually opt for red, making my own sauce, but the creamy, garlicky, cheesy sauce on this pizza was fantastic. Black olives, shallot, moist and tender chicken and Mozzarella topped it all off delicious bite-after-bite.
White Garlic Chicken PizzaI used chicken that I had roasted on my Char-Broil Big Easy when making this white garlic chicken pizza, but any cooked chicken will do. Grab a rotisserie chicken next time you’re at the store and shred or chop it. Perfect.

Also try my BBQ chicken pizza.
