Caesar Salad Pizza
Yield 4-6 servings
1 recipe Pizza Dough (I like to buy mine at Trader Joes to save time) Olive oil, for brushing crust 8 ounces mozzarella, sliced 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus small chunk for shaving
1 chicken breast, grilled and sliced thinly (or shredded from rotisserie chicken) 2 romaine hearts, washed and dried, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1/2 cup Caesar Salad Dressing Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Prepare pizza dough if making from scratch.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
On a baking sheet brushed liberally with olive oil, stretch the dough to desired shape and thickness. Brush the crust with olive oil and top with the mozzarella slices. Bake the pizza until the dough crisps up and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
Remove the pizza from oven. Top the melted mozzarella with the grated Parmesan and sliced or shredded chicken. Toss the romaine hearts with the Caesar Salad Dressing and season with salt and pepper. Top the pizza with the Caesar salad and shave over some Parmesan. Serve and enjoy!
Note: If you don't have a pizza stone at home, no worries, use a well-oiled sheet tray and a hot oven to achieve a crisp bottom on your pizza! Also place the dough on the very bottom rack of your oven. It will help to create that crispy crust.
