Caesar Chicken Pizza

Caesar Chicken Pizza



Every since I made the baked potato pizza last week, I have vowed never to order a pizza ever again.

And true to my word, I have made another pizza instead of ordering in.

Enter the Caesar Chicken pizza.




Since I didn't have any canned tomato sauce, and I obviously didn't want to leave the house because then I would need to change out of my pajama pants (the horror), I decided to try to work with what I had lying around my kitchen.

And since I have a lot of Caesar salad dressing in my fridge at all times, I tried using this as the sauce for this pizza. And it was the perfect plan. It's like a Chicken Caesar salad, but on a pizza. What more could you ask for?





What you'll need:

-1 recipe for pizza dough 
-2 boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
-1/2 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing
-2 cups white cheddar cheese, shredded
-1 tomato, chopped into small cubes
-1/4 cup green onions


Directions:

    1.   Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken on the skillet for 3-4 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
    2.   Preheat the oven to 425˚F. If  using an unglazed tile, put it in the oven while preheating.
    3.   Shape the dough into the desired pizza shape. Spread Caesar dressing over the dough, then sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Place the tomatoes and the chicken on top, then sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of cheese.
    4.   Place the pizza on the already hot tile (or place pizza on a lightly sprayed baking sheet) and bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and crust is brown.

  1. I used to visit a pizza store in NY that served a Greek Salad pizza. It was so awesome. The pizza dough had some kind of cheese in it (maybe feta?). That was the best part. There was no tomato sauce or mozzarella cheese. Instead, all the greek salad ingredients were put on top and it was served warm. Yum yum! Your baked potato version sounds good too!

  9. I usually like a slightly thinner crust, but this one looks quite lovely and chewy. The toppings sound great too. I'll have to make a note next time I make pizza (I've been doing a Naan base these days)
