homemade dough recipe
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Lb. (about 2 breasts) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size
Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
2 cups freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded lettuce
1/2 cup garlic-flavored croutons, crushed
3/4 cup Caesar Dressing, divided
Preheat oven, according to temp. stated on your dough package. Place rolled out dough onto a greased pizza pan.
If using raw dough or homemade recipe: Pre-cook the raw pizza dough partially, prior to applying the toppings. This avoids the crust from getting under-cooked or soggy. I usually cook it at 400 degrees, for about 8-10 minutes. Then apply my toppings and cook for an additional 15 minutes, at 400 degrees F.
If using pre-made, already cooked pizza crust: Just apply your toppings and cook according to package directions.
Heat oil in a large pan, over medium heat. Add chicken, salt, and pepper. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Drain any liquid and transfer chicken to a bowl. Stir in 1/4 cup dressing and mix well.
Top crust with chicken and cheese. Cook according to the instructions on your package of pre-made crust or follow the instructions on your homemade dough recipe. Cheese should be melted and bubbly.
Remove from oven and top with lettuce and crushed croutons. Drizzle 1/2 cup dressing over top and sprinkle fresh ground black pepper.
