Roasted Garlic, Chicken, and Herb White Pizza

Roasted Garlic, Chicken, and Herb White Pizza
I'm generally not an adventurous pizza eater (Ok fine, I'm not an adventurous eater, period.) But like...I'm that lame person where, in a group setting, people are like, "Ok we want pineapple and banana peppers on this pizza, and artichokes and capers on this one...Kayle what do you want?

"....just plain cheese please." I always choke out in the most timid voice.

(The exception to this rule is when I hear about ricotta and truffle oil pizzas, I'M ALL OVER THAT. But even when I eat margherita or grandma style pizzas, they're still the same basic ingredients as a plain, old, boring, not adventurous pizza.)

And when I'm making pizza at home, I'm no different. There's always a thin crust, tomato sauce (or at least tomatoes) mozzarella/Parmesan cheese, and some basil. That's it. But this pizza, YOU GUYS this pizza is something totally different and so amazing and so delicious.

Look at me, growing up.

Anyway, I really don't know what's not to like about this pizza.
I used my favorite, whole wheat, pizza crust (you can use whatever crust recipe-or storebought crust dough-you prefer). We have a white sauce that essentially just tastes like garlicky goodness (and that I cut some calories on by using fat free evaporated milk). Then theres the goodness of chicken, cheese, and red onions. But really, you can def. play around with toppings-as with any pizza. You can omit and add whatever your little heart desires. That's the fun!
