I have mentioned before how much I love Chicken Cordon Bleu and any variation of it. Once my husband brought home some leftover pizza from a family event I couldn't go to and I tried some Chicken Cordon Bleu pizza I was hooked. I don't eat it that often because while my husband likes it, he's much more of a pepperoni fan, but occasionally I breakdown and have it. It's Chicken Cordon Bleu and pizza - what's not to like?
Chicken Cordon Bleu Pizza
1 batch pizza dough (here is my fave)
1 c. milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup Swiss Cheese
S&P to taste
1 cup diced or shredded cooked chicken
3/4 cup diced cooked ham
1 1/2 cups cheese blend for topping (I like to use mozzarella, swiss and cheddar for this pizza)
a dash of Italian seasoning
Make the dough according to instructions
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt butter and whisk in flour. Cook for about 1 minute. Add the milk, whisking constantly. Bring to a low boil and immediately reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add 1/2 cup Swiss cheese and stir until melted. Season with S&P to taste
Top the prepared pizza dough with cheese sauce, then top with chicken, ham and pizza cheese mixture. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
Bake in a 450 degree oven about 10-20 minutes, depending on the dough recipe used.
