When we’re in the mood for pizza we usually like to freshen things up with a salad on the side. With this easy Caesar salad pizza recipe, you don’t need to worry about that.  The salad is on top! We’re all about easy recipes, so this one is one of our favorites. The base of the pizza is topped with olive oil, a little cheddar cheese and a little Italian seasoning. That’s baked, then while the pizza is still warm, we top it with a crisp cool Caesar salad. 

Fresh Weekday Meal – Simple Caesar Salad Pizza Recipe

This pizza recipe is perfect for the weeknight. It’s family friendly and requires little from you.  Plus, you can make this in 30 minutes (maybe less).

The pizza dough we used is actually from Pillsbury. We’re sure you’ve noticed their products in your grocery store – we used their Classic Pizza Crust for this. Pillsbury did pay us to develop this recipe using their pizza crust.

If you can’t find Pillsbury’s pizza crust, feel free to use any dough, store-bought pizza or homemade.

    I didn’t make it YET.
    I was wondering why cheddar on the crust and not parmesan?

      Either cheese will work. Parmesan would be delicious!
