O.M.G. This was, no joke, one of the most delicious pizzas I have ever eaten. When I pinned this recipe, it was another one of those “well here’s a semi-enjoyable way to eat vegetables and be semi-healthy” feelings. Boy, did I underestimate this pizza HARD.

I made one big change to the original recipe: leaving off the garlic sauce. It seemed like too much dairy for my stomach to handle, plus essentially putting alfredo sauce on a veggie pizza sort of negates the health benefits of the veggies, in my opinion. This was also my first time trying “white” pizza (no sauce) and I was pleasantly surprised!

When I put this on the weekly menu, I was really nervous that my boyfriend would hate it. As I’ve mentioned before, he’s an absolute pizza hound and would probably eat it 5 times a week if left to his own devices. His favourites are the greasy, extra-cheese, 5-types-of-processed-meat varieties, so proposing a veggie-heavy topping list was like walking through a minefield: I might get away with it, but not likely. Against all odds, he loved it as much as I did! It’s hard to argue with the flavourful crunch of yummy veggies, moist chicken, and salty cheese!
