Chicken Caesar Pizza Recipe

Dressed greens on top of warm pizza may sound a little strange but trust me, it's fantastic. —Tracy Youngman, Post Falls, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 6 tablespoons creamy Caesar salad dressing, divided
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 cups hearts of romaine salad mix
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll pizza crust and press to fit into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan, pinching edges to form a rim. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and 1/2 teaspoon garlic; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from heat; stir in 2 tablespoons salad dressing.
  • 3. Spread crust with 3 tablespoons salad dressing; sprinkle with remaining garlic. Top with half of the cheeses and all of the chicken. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  • 4. In a small bowl, toss salad mix and green onions with remaining dressing. Just before serving, top pizza with salad and tomatoes. Yield: 6 servings.
