Apparently salad on pizza is a thing.  I first saw this when we lived in Germany and they liked to top their pizzas with arugula (delicious, by the way).  Then last weekend I was following my Saturday morning tradition of watching the Pioneer Woman, and she made a pizza with herbed chicken caesar salad on top.  Genius!

I thought that sounded amazing and my husband loves caesar salad, so off I went to the kitchen.  I used fathead pizza crust which is super easy to make!

I’ve used this fathead pizza crust before to make my Low Carb Florentine Pizza.  It is yummy!

I also like to make Chicken Crust Pizza!

HOW TO MAKE FATHEAD PIZZA CRUST

To make the crust, add your mozzarella cheese, almond flour, and cream cheese to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Remove and stir.  Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir again.  I use my hands at this point and work the dough until it is not too hot to handle, then I add the egg and mix that in.

The dough should not be too sticky.  I lay out a piece of parchment paper and I press the fathead pizza dough into an oblong shape.  You could do round, but I wanted to do oblong for this chicken caesar salad pizza.

Place the parchment with the fathead pizza crust in a 400F oven and let it cook for 10 minutes.  I then removed it from the oven and spread olive oil and grated parmesan all over it.  Then I put it back in the oven for 5 more minutes.

While the crust is cooking, I threw the salad together.  I just did a basic caesar salad with chopped romaine, chicken breast, and dressing.

HOW TO MAKE FAHEAD PIZZA CRUST WITHOUT A MICROWAVE

Add the mozzarella, cream cheese, and almond flour to a sauce pan on the stove over medium heat and cover with a lid.  Let cook until the cheese is just melted.  Remove from heat and stir until everything is combined.  Pour into a bowl and let cool until you can knead it with your hands.  Add the egg and knead until completely combined.  Place on a piece of parchment paper and press into a round or oblong shape 1/4 inch thick.

My husband voted this a winner!  In fact, he said it was his new favorite pizza.  Score!

You could use leftover chicken thighs instead of breast.  I love this chicken thigh recipe and I would use the leftovers to make this pizza!

Ingredients

For the Crust

For the salad

  • 1 large Chicken breast cooked and chopped
  • 4 cups Romaine lettuce chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons Caesar dressing

Instructions

  • Remove the crust from the oven and spread with the olive oil and parmesan cheese.  Bake an additional 5 minutes.  Remove from the oven
  • While the crust is baking, toss the lettuce, chicken, and dressing to make the salad.
  • To serve, pile the caesar salad on top of the fathead crust and slice.

Notes

  • I like to use Newmans Own creamy Caesar.  You could also make your own.
  • Chop the lettuce and the chicken into small pieces so it is easier to eat on the pizza.
  • To make this without a microwave: Add the mozzarella, cream cheese, and almond four to a sauce pan on the stove over medium heat and cover with a lid.  Let cook until the cheese is just melted.  Remove from heat and stir until everything is combined.  Pour into a bowl and let cool until you can knead it with your hands.  Add the egg and knead until completely combined.  Place on a piece of parchment paper and press into a round or oblong shape 1/4 inch thick.
