Does Olive Garden Have Pizza?

While Olive Garden used to have pizza on the menu, they updated their menus a while ago removing all if the pizza from the menu, with the exception of the kids menu .
therefore this delectable Olive Garden chicken alfredo pizza recipe is unfortunately nobelium longer available to be ordered in their restaurants .
That besides makes this recipe invaluable, since nowadays the only place you can make it is in your own kitchen .

What types of cheese does Olive Garden Use?

For this recipe, Olive Garden uses a blend of Fontinella cheese and mozzarella tall mallow .
While mozzarella tall mallow is a well known cheese, Fontinella is not. Fontinella cheese is a sweetness and creamy tall mallow that melts wonderfully. Which makes it the best cheese to spouse with mozzarella cheese and make the perfect sauce less so far creamy pizza .
This blend of cheeses besides provides this recipe an add depth of spirit to this Olive Garden pizza .

How Does this Sauce Less Pizza Work?

normally when you think of pizza, it by and large includes some type of sauce, whether that is BBQ sauce, Alfredo sauce, or regular pizza sauce .
well, with this recipe there is no actual sauce. however, the direction this pizza is put together replaces the need for an actual sauce .
Since the onions and garlic are sauteed in olive oil and then added to tomatoes, it allows the tomatoes to break down slenderly and become wonderfully tender .
When the tomato mix is put directly onto the pizza dough it acts just like a sauce from the juices that the tomatoes produce when they are assorted with the tender onions, garlic, and olive anoint .

Can I use Pizza Dough for This Recipe?

Yes, you decidedly can ! In fact, you should try it at least once with pizza boodle and see which you and your family like best. Either, with pizza dough or pre-baked pie crust, will be absolutely delightful .

The New and Easy Way to Reheat Pizza

I have tried many different ways to reheat leftover pizza since pizza is a staple dinner recipe. While I decidedly do not recommend the microwave to reheat your pizza it will work in a touch. The downside is your pizza will probable be inert .
Reheating the pizza in the oven does work well to provide a crisp crust as opposed to a boggy crust when microwaved. however, preheating your oven and reheating the pizza in the oven can take quite a bite of time. Make sure to have at least 20-30 minutes to reheat your pizza .
If you are looking for the best and fastest means to reheat your pizza I would use an airfryer ! I know everyone is using the airfryer to cook everything these days, but it sincerely is the best option .
You can pop a slit or two of pizza in the air fryer basket and set it to 380 degrees for 2 minutes and you will get the absolutely heated, crisp pizza in under 10 minutes .
