A family favorite, that is rich, cheesy, creamy and oh so good! The crust may also be prepared in advance and refrigerated overnight. Prepare just as a cheese pizza, or top with your favorite pizza topping before adding the mozzarella.

  • Thoroughly grease a deep dish pizza pan. Punch down dough, and transfer to the pan. Cover dough with a cloth, and allow crust to rise 25 minutes, until puffy.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • In a saucepan over low heat, mix the cream, butter, and cream cheese, stirring constantly, until melted and well-blended. Mix in Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Continue to cook and stir 15 minutes, or until Parmesan is lightly browned. Spread over the pizza crust. Top with mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until crust is lightly browned.

There wasn't a slice left over from this! The entire family loved it. I used pizza dough made in my bread machine but otherwise followed the directions exactly. The only 'head's up' I would give to others trying this recipe is to wait at least 15 minutes before you slice the pizza. The sauce is very runny so you have to give it a few minutes to solidify. Next time I make it I'm adding fresh spinach to the mix! Thanks for sharing this recipe Emking!:) Read More

Burnt to a crisp. Charred. I had it on 450 degrees not for 35 minutes but only for 30. Hard as a rock black and like I said charred. Read More

What a wonderful pizza this makes! But to save time I cheated. I used two prebaked pizza crusts and a jar of my favorite commercial Alfredo Sauce. One jar was enough for 2 pizzas. I topped the pizzas with chopped red and green peppers onions sliced black olives and shredded mozzarella. It is a lovely "Why didn't I think of that?" recipe. Read More

Wonderful! I did a few things a bit differently. For ease I did the dough for the crust in my bread machine and my dough was a little liquidy so instead of adding more flour I added parmesan cheese. For the alfredo sauce (because it is so rich) I covered the pizza with a little sauce and then put the rest out for dipping. I put spinich green onion and chicken on for toppings. Thanks Emking for a great recipe. Read More

My daughter and I both love pizza so I make this almost three times a month. I admit I cheat on the dough and use the canned ones at the store. But I do prepare the alfredo sauce exactly as written. The sauce is so good it's worth the time and effort. I also play around with the toppings. Excellent pizza! Read More

This was a great recipe. The kids loved it. Even my one year old who I can't get to eat anything gobbled it up. I used a different crust recipe off this site and it worked well. Will do again. Read More
