The best appetizer at Olive Garden hands down, is the Chicken Alfredo Pizza Fritta. So it’s no surprise that today I will be remaking this recipe with a copycat version of my very own. Sorry OG, but this recipe is better than the original! My husband, Aaron, took a bite and said OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER EATEN. Granted, he has said this more than once, but this still goes down as one of the greatest copycat meals I have made. Second of course to my Copycat Popeye’s Famous Chicken Sandwich Recipe.
Picture a hot pocket full of homemade chicken alfredo, but instead of hot pocket crust, it’s pillowy soft homemade (EASY) pizza dough. And to make it even better, YOU DIP IT IN HOMEMADE GARLICKY ALFREDO SAUCE!!! The only downside to this recipe is the urge to dive in before they cool off in the center. Guaranteed your impatience will result in burning your mouth with the molten alfredo inside – don’t say I didn’t warn you 🙂
I am so happy to be making this post! I haven’t posted any new recipes since late February and it’s an awesome feeling to be back to doing what I LOVE. Between the crazy house renovation and living with in-laws, I haven’t been in the best circumstances to focus on cooking or baking, let alone writing out a recipe (the hardest part of food blogging).
Don’t be overwhelmed by the recipe steps. Even though we are making a few different items from scratch, I was in and out of the kitchen in less than 1.5 hours from start to finish – and that included time for me to record a Tik Tok video of the process LOL.
Here are a few hacks to make this recipe as simple and organized as possible:
- Prep the pizza dough and while it’s rising for an hour, bake the chicken (this could also be done the day before)
- While the chicken is baking, make the alfredo sauce (this can also be done the day before).
- Set both the chicken and alfredo sauce aside to cool while you finish the pizza dough.
- Assemble the alfredo pockets while oil is heating.
