Quick and Easy Caesar Salad Pizza Recipe

  • PREP
  • COOK

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.

Makes 4 servings

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


    1Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Then spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

    2Form 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.

    3Brush 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.

    4Once baked, top pizza with lettuce, cherry tomato halves and the Parmesan shavings then drizzle the Caesar dressing on top.

    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!
