Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza

This is not your ordinary pizza.
IMG521 I LOVE salad on top of pizza – it gives it an entirely different texture. Plus you get some roughage; and erryyybody needs some roughage.

Well, ok, except my husband. He can eat an entire pound of Mozzarella cheese like it’s an apple and go poop right after. I just really don’t think that’s normal.

Although I have to say I’m jealous of that talent.

I love Muenster cheese on pizza, along with other cheeses, but feel free to use your favorite melty cheeses. Although you could definitely bake this on a baking sheet, my pizza stone makes the BEST pizzas. It’s Pampered Chef, and I’ve had it for 10 years now – 10!!! I have used the hell out of it. I made this a little on the thin side, but making a deep pan version in a cast iron skillet would be awesome, too.

We just love all things pizza around here. Here’s your printable-

  • Combine the water and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer; let sit for 10 minutes.

  • Spread half of the pizza dough on stone or sheet.
  • Pour about 1/2 cup of the Caesar dressing over the dough (more or less depending on preference), spreading with a spoon.
