Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza #SundaySupper

A little extra cheese always helps.

A friend came over to hold a Pampered Chef party and she shared this amazing recipe. Audrey had two slices. Since it was basically a salad on a pizza crust I wanted to see if it would do well on a regular night. I was pleased to learn it did.

As you may have guessed from our lack of posts things are a little busy around here. I hope to soon post about all of our escapades. Our meals, and some of them even healthy, have almost all come from restaurants and directly from the grocery store. After all of that eating in places other than our dining room I was happy for us to cook together at home.

With this meal I found ease of creation and universal acceptance. Pillsbury now makes a whole wheat pizza dough and with the purchase of pre-cooked chicken this meal can be pulled together in the time it takes to bake the dough. 

The girls helped me roll out the dough, tear the lettuce, measure the dressing, and toss the salad. We had a hot meal on the table in less than 30 minutes.

  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • grilled chicken, about 2 cups
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper
  • black olives
  • Caesar dressing
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • clove of garlic
  • a little shredded mozzarella for the top
Roll out the dough into your favorite shape and prick to vent. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 8-12 minutes or until crust is baked. Meanwhile chop the red pepper, black olives and tear the lettuce. Mix 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Caesar dressing in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup grated Parmesan. Mince or press the garlic and mix into the dressing. Toss the salad and chicken with the dressing. Once the crust is a little cooler top with the salad and then sprinkle a little shredded mozzarella on top. Cut and serve.

The #SundaySupper team decided that we all needed a few more solutions to the busy days that kids being back in school bring. I know that with two young girls and their activities there are plenty of nights we will need several of these recipes.

  17. I love reading your blog, it gets me so excited for the days when my daughter is old enough to help around the kitchen. I am so silly and have already bought her first apron, that is way too big. It was so cute I just couldn't resist. :) And I also love the idea of a caesar salad pizza.

  19. I love pizza so much. I try to have a one in the freezer at all time for those nights when I'm too exhausted and short on time to cook. I didn't know Pilsbury made a whole wheat dough, that's awesome!
