  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 10-inch oven-safe non-stick skillet (or cast iron skillet) with 1 teaspoon butter.
  • 2
    Squeeze excess water out of spinach and stir spinach into the Alfredo sauce. Add half of the shredded mozzarella cheese along with 2/3 of the diced chicken and 2/3 of the sun-dried tomatoes. Stir just until combined.
  • 3
    Cut each string cheese into 4 pieces. Unroll pizza dough and cut it into 12 squares.
  • 4
    Brush egg white over pieces of pizza dough. Set one piece of the string cheese on a square of dough. Attach opposing corners of the dough, then pinch around the edges to seal the dough. Pinch and roll into a ball.
  • 5
    Arrange the balls of dough in a single ring around the edge of the buttered skillet. Spoon spinach mixture into the center of the skillet.
  • 6
    Brush the tops of the dough balls with olive oil and sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese over top.
  • 7
    Sprinkle some of the remaining mozzarella cheese and all the remaining chicken and sun-dried tomatoes over the spinach dip, then top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.
  • 8
    Bake for 32-35 minutes, until the pizza crust turns deep golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
