Some of you may remember my Caesar salad kick a few months back. If not, it's okay, I don't expect you to remember EVERYTHING I post :) Anyway, there was a couple weeks a few months back where I had at least three different types of Caesar salad creations. Mainly the big difference was the dressing. So why I am telling you this? Well..... I must not be over my Caesar kick because I saw this recipe and turned around and made it a few days later. And boy, let me tell you, it was fantastic! I used homemade Caesar dressing, which, I believe is the way to go, but you can always use store bought. Actually, the original recipe calls for store bought dressing and already cooked chicken, which makes this already simple recipe a breeze to throw together.
Chicken Caesar Pizza
Adapted from Taste of Home
1 Mama Mia Pizza Crust, thin and crispy
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing (store bought or homemade)
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
1-2 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
Remove 2 Tablespoons of the dressing and rub over both sides of the chicken breast. Place on a plate, cover and place in refrigerator for 1 hour. Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Place the chicken over direct heat and grill 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches on internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to cool completely before cutting into bite size chunks. Toss cut chicken with another tablespoon or two of the Caesar dressing and set aside.
Preheat grill to 400-425 degrees F. (If using a pizza stone, place pizza stone on gill grates while preheating). Brush olive oil over both sides of the pizza. Place on pizza stone and grill for 2-3 minutes, or just until the bottom is golden brown. Carefully remove crust from stone and bring inside. Flip crust over and spread all but 1-2 tablespoons of the Caesar dressing over the cooked side of the crust. Top with chicken, tomatoes and then the cheese. Place back on grill and grill for another 3-5 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown and the cheese has melted. Carefully remove from grill. Toss remaining 1-2 Tablespoons with the lettuce. Place the lettuce on top of the pizza, slice and serve. Enjoy!
