Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza

I found this recipe in my Taste of Home magazine. My friend who has 3 kids came over the night I made it and all the kids loved it! It is way easy and way yummy!

1 tube (13.8 oz) refrigerated pizza crust
1/2 c. Alfredo sauce
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 c. shredded Swiss cheese (I'm not a super big fan of Swiss cheese so I just used mozzarella)
1 1/2 c. cubed fully cooked ham
10 breaded chicken nuggets, thawed and cut into 1/2 in. pieces
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

  1. Unroll dough onto greased 15 x 10 x 1 baking pan; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 425 for 8-10 min. or until edges are lightly browned.
  2. Spread with Alfredo sauce; sprinkle with garlic salt and Swiss cheese. Top with ham, chicken nuggets and mozzarella.
  3. Bake for 8-10 min. or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

1 medium onion
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (abt. 4 oz. each)
2 pkg (10 oz) refrigerated pizza crust
1 tsp vegetable oil, divided
1-2 tsp pampered chef Southwestern Seasoning Mix (if you don't have this the recipe mentions using 1 tsp chili powder and 1/2 tsp ground cumin, or I'm sure you could just taco seasoning or fajita seasoning)

additional salsa and sour cream (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Cut peppers into 1/2 in. thick strips. Cut onion in 1/2 in. thick wedges. Cut chicken crosswise into thin strips.
  2. Lightly sprinkle round pizza pan with flour. Unroll both packages of pizza dough and arrange side by side on pan, shaping into a circle. roll dough to edge of pizza pan, pressing seams to seal
  3. Heat frying pan over high heat. Add 1/2 tsp. of the oil and chicken; stir-fry 2-3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from skillet. Add remaining oil. bell pepper, onion, and seasoning mix to skillet. Press garlic over vegetables. Stir fry 1-2 minutes or until veggies are crisp-tender. Remove pan from heat; stir in chicken and salsa.
  4. Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly over crust. Arrange chicken mixture over cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese over chicken mixture.
  5. Bake 18-22 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven. Sprinkle cilantro over pizza; let stand 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve with additional salsa and sour cream, if desired.
