I’m literally always in the mood for a chicken Caesar salad. I have a recipe for a Healthier Chicken Caesar on my website already, so I had to combine it with my healthier pizza base to create this Chicken Caesar Pizza. This pizza features a super satisfying dough base, topped with chicken and a blend of cheeses. It’s finished with Romaine that’s been tossed in my healthier Caesar dressing, which gives it a great burst of freshness and brightness. I finish it with some shaved cheese, and this pizza is so so so good. It’s high in protein, Weight Watchers friendly, and you’ll want to make sure that you make some extra dressing because you’re gonna want to put that ish on everything. Hope you love this recipe as much as we did!

Making Chicken Caesar Pizza

Making this pizza is very similar to my other pizza recipes. It starts with a Greek yogurt-based though, which you’ll roll out and par-bake (partially bake it so it’s mostly cooked through) prior to topping it. While it bakes, you’ll prep the rest of your ingredients and make the healthier Caesar dressing. Making the dressing is as simple as throwing everything into a blender and blending it until smooth. Wash and chop your romaine lettuce, toss it in the dressing, and set aside.

When your crust is baked, You’ll then top that crust with some Caesar dressing, chopped chicken, and a blend of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. You’ll then finish the pizza in the oven so that the cheese can melt and the chicken can get warmed through. Once you remove the pizza from the oven, you’ll want to let it cool a little bit, and then top it with the dressed romaine leaves. Finish it with some shaved Parmesan and slice it up! You could also top this pizza with additional anchovies, you can add some breadcrumbs or croutons for some added crunch, etc. Customize it like you would your favorite salad and enjoy!

I personally love cold pizza, but if you plan to reheat, I recommend storing the pizza base and the salad leaves/dressing separately. Then, just reheat the pizza using your preferred method (air fry it, bake it, microwave it, etc), then ross the lettuce in the dressing and top it fresh.

Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stand Mixer with dough hook (optional)
  • 9×13 Baking Sheet

Ingredients
  

Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dijon
  • 3 anchovy filets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil from the filets
  • 1/2 Tsp black pepper
Crust:
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt nonfat
  • 1.5 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tsp black pepper
Toppings:
  • 1.5 cups fat free mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups chicken breast cooked cooled, shredded
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan plus extra for topping
  • 3 heads romaine lettuce washed and chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Combine all dressing ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  • Wash, dry, and cut up romaine lettuce and set aside.
Crust:
  • Combine flour, baking powder, garlic powder, pepper and salt in a bowl. Stir together. Add greek yogurt and egg, and either by hand or using a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment, mix until your dough is uniform. Flour the outside of the dough, as well as your surface and rolling pin, as the dough will be sticky.
  • Line 9×13 baking sheet with parchment paper, silicone baking mats, or spray VERY well with cooking spray. Using a rolling pin, roll your dough out until it mostly fills the size of the baking sheet. Carefully transfer dough to baking sheet, and continue to roll/spread it until it roughly fills out the sheet. It’s ok if it’s not perfect!
  • Spray with cooking spray and bake for ~18 minutes, until just lightly turning golden.
Toppings
  • Spread 3-4 tbsp of dressing over base of the pizza. Top with 1 cup of mozzarella cheese. Spread chicken over cheese evenly, leaving crust exposed. Top with remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes, until cheese is fully melted. Remove and let cool slightly.
  • Toss romaine lettuce with remaining dressing and top pizza with salad mixture. Top with some additional Parmesan cheese, slice into 8 slices, and enjoy!
  • Store any leftovers separately in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat in the oven or air fry at 370 for 5 minutes to crisp up base then top with salad, cheese, and enjoy.
