Meatfree Monday #5, Tomato Basil Alfredo Pizza

Yup! She's kissing a fish!
     I hope you all had a fantastic 4th of July. We were out of town visiting family, so I wasn't able to get my Meatfree Monday post in. We had such a good time, and Miss E got to see fireworks for the first time. She also had her first wienie roast, smores, and went fishing for the first time. She had so much fun!
     The holiday is over now, so we are getting back into the swing of things. This weeks meatfree recipe, was so easy. My husband actually made it which tells you how easy it is...those of you who know him understand. I left directions and came home to dinner...I should do that more often.
     He went out to the garden, and picked some fresh basil. The tomatoes aren't ripe, so we used store bought. We had alfredo sauce and pizza dough in the freezer. I didn't leave very detailed directions, but he did follow exactly what I put. I might have arranged things a little differently, but I'm a little more particular with symmetry and appearance than he is. To each his own.
The point is that it came out delicious and was so easy and cheap to make. It was supposed to be a near copy to our favorite pizza (The Bazbeaux Special), and it was pretty good. We used fresh tomatoes instead of sun-dried.

1 pizza dough
alfredo sauce
fresh basil
sliced tomatoes
mozzarella cheese
  • Place dough on pizza stone. Our recipe requires that you cook it for about 5 minutes before adding toppings, but if you are using your own dough follow those directions.
  • Spread alfredo sauce on top of dough.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese or fresh mozzarella over the sauce. Top with basil and sliced tomatoes.
  • Bake until golden.
