Chicken Caesar Deluxe Pizza Recipe

Chicken Caesar Deluxe Pizza Recipe

“Here is my favorite pizza recipe. The tomatoes really add color, and it’s definitely worth the time it takes to put together!” Erin Hamann – Reeseville, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat Caesar vinaigrette
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1-3/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken and rosemary in oil until chicken is no longer pink; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, yeast, salt and basil. Add water; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover and rest for 10 minutes.
  • 3. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 4. Spread vinaigrette over crust. Layer with spinach, green pepper, mushrooms, onion and chicken. Sprinkle with cheese and tomatoes. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Yield: 8 pieces.
