Quick and Easy Caesar Salad Pizza Recipe
The base of the pizza is topped with olive oil, 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. If you don’t like Caesar Salad, try ranch or blue cheese dressing instead of Caesar dressing. You could also add cooked chicken, beef or shrimp.
You Will Need
1 (13.8 ounce) roll Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust or substitute 12 ounces homemade pizza dough
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce (about 1 romaine heart)
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shavings
1/4 cup Caesar dressing, see our homemade dressing recipe
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Then spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
Form pizza dough into a 15-inch by 10-inch rectangle (this doesn’t have to be exact, just close). Place dough onto baking sheet then bake for 8 minutes.
Brush olive oil over the baked pizza crust then scatter a teaspoon of Italian seasoning as well as the cheddar cheese on top. Bake the pizza 6 to 10 minutes until cheese has melted and starts to bubble.
Once baked, top pizza with lettuce, cherry tomato halves and the Parmesan shavings then drizzle the Caesar dressing on top.
