Broccoli Cheddar or Chicken Caesar Pizza! Make it your way!!

Ever since my hubby tried some Chicken Caesar Salad Pizza he has been driving me crazy to make some.

  I've put it off long enough so today the day to satisfy our taste buds. I said OK but  I'd have to please BOTH our taste buds so I am making this pizza half and half.  Half Chicken Caesar and half Broccoli Cheese so we both can be happy!  Enjoy!

Note:  You can easily make this type of pizza with refrigerated pizza dough.  Place dough in pizza pan and pre bake the crust for several minutes or until browned> Remove from oven and add topping.  Put back in oven to melt cheese and it's as easy as  One Two Three! 

His!  Chicken Caesar Pizza

This was mine!  Broccoli Cheese  Yummy!

Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,

Bon Appetit!

It was really quite easy.

One:   I bought a prebaked rectangular pizza shell to make it easier. I baked it with a little olive oil at 425 until it was golden.  Approx. 10 minutes.  Set aside

Second: I cut up in small pieces two boneless chicken breasts (I used my poultry scissors). Lightly sprayed a cooking pan and saute' the pieces until there wasn't any pink.  I let the chicken breasts cool,

Third: I added 1/3 cup of Light Caesar Dressing and tossed.( You can easily use a store bought chicken and cut off some of the chicken)

Fourth: In a separate bowl I diced 1 small Roma tomato (I removed seeds)
1/4 to 1/2 cup Romaine lettuce (small pieces)

Fifth: Placed lettuce and tomato into seasoned chicken and stir.

After your pizza shell is baked place chicken/tomato/lettuce on top making sure to spoon all with all the salad dressing.  Top with a bit of mozzarella or Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and bake in a hot oven until cheese is melted slightly.  I baked it for about 5 to 7 minutes at 450 degrees.

Note:  I made this pizza half the way my hubby likes it and the other half I made Broccoli Cheese.

Here is how I seasoned the broccoli:

You can use either fresh or frozen broccoli.  Cook until tender with slight amount of salt. When cooked, drain and add several tablespoons olive oil and 2 cloves minced garlic.  Toss and top pizza crust.  Add shredded cheese of your choice.  **I used shredded brick cheese.  I like a little more flavor than mozzarella.  You can you any cheese to your liking..
