Mmm, Mmm Monday- White Bubble Up Pizza

I totally had a case of the Mondays today and forgot all about posting a recipe until my sweet friend, Amy, reminded me that I had dropped the ball. 

I found this recipe on Pinterest a couple of weeks back and just KNEW Andy would love it.  Anything that has the word "pizza" attached to its name it usually deemed safe in this house.  Unless it's broccoli pizza, in which case the hubs would divorce me for such blasphemy.

I've had bubble up pizza before, and was looking forward to this one, because, let's face it---Alfredo sauce makes everything better!

Here's what you'll need: 1 jar of Alfredo sauce, two cans of refrigerated biscuit dough, mozzarella, chicken breast, and garlic powder (or if you're garlic freaks like us, minced garlic).

Cut your chicken into bite-sized pieces.  Saute over med-high heat.  I seasoned mine with Montreal seasoning.  When the chicken is just about done, add in the minced garlic (if you like lots of garlic) and saute for an additional minute or so. Or buy a rotisserie chicken and skip this step altogether!

While the chicken is cooking, pour the Alfredo sauce into a medium bowl.  Cut the biscuits into quarters and drop them into the Alfredo sauce.  If you are using garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, add it now. Stir and make sure each biscuit is coated with sauce.

Add the chicken and 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese to the biscuit mixture.  Stir to combine.

Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan and top with the other half of the cheese.

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes, or until the biscuits are completely done.  

 Reviews from The Peanut Gallery

Me: 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.  I thought this was a bit on the salty side.  The original version calls for mushrooms, which would definitely help cut the saltiness down.  Andy hates mushrooms, but he may just have to pick them out the next time I make this.

Andy: 5 out of 5 stars.  He was perfectly happy with the salt amount and even topped his with Parmesan.  He wants me to make this every day.

Emma: Normally, Emma won't touch meat, but will eat pasta and bread all day if we let her.  Of course, she ate all the chicken and wouldn't touch the biscuits. Go figure.

Tell your sweet friend Amy (aka Talky Talkerson) that if she wants recipes on Mondays she should start her own blog! Of course I kid... I, too, look forward to your weekly culinary adventures, and I love the varied responses from Emma. I'm definitely going to have to make this sometime!
