Another Made Up Pizza - Spinach, Chicken and Bacon Pizza with Garlic Sauce

Remember when I made up the Creamy Chicken Garlic Pizza last January? Well, this idea stemmed from that one since I used the same sauce.

Regular readers all know by now that I make 2-3 homemade pizzas every single Saturday night. It's a given that if it's Saturday, it's pizza night. It's been that way since oh, 1997 or 1998 (?) when I implemented "Family Night" with our three itty bitty children and we would watch the Friday night line up of shows on tv and have pizza and popcorn. Over the years we switched it to "Movie Night" and then later had to move it to Saturday to accommodate for high school varsity football games.

Last Saturday my oldest daughter asked that I make something with spinach and bacon on it along with a white sauce. No problem. I used the creamy garlic sauce that I love so much for the base;

Creamy Garlic Pizza Sauce

4 T butter
1 1/2 T minced garlic
1 1/2 T flour
3/4 c heavy cream
1/4 c parsley
garlic salt

Melt the butter in a pan on the stove. Add the garlic and quickly saute' over medium heat for 1 minute until tender but not brown. Whisk in flour until smooth and add cream and parsley. Stir quickly until thick. Add garlic salt to taste. Spread over a pizza crust.

Add;

fresh or frozen/thawed/drained chopped spinach
cooked, crumbled bacon (I buy Hormel Real Bacon in a package from Costco and keep it in the freezer)
cooked, diced chicken
thin sliced rings of red onion
smoked provolone
mozzarella

Bake at 400 degree's approximately 17- 20 minutes until golden brown on the edges and the crust is done in the center.
