Caesar Salad Pizza

Caesar Salad Pizza

 

I love Caesar Salad but who doesn’t? So, how could I not make a Caesar Salad pizza?! On occasion, I’ll make it at home and you can bet heavy that I’m going to order one when dinning out. The quality of the lettuce & the flavor behind the dressing are key components but the croutons are not to be overlooked. I tend to favor big cubes of bread, and I prefer them on the softer side. A little crunch, but not stale.  So, when making a Caesar at home, I enjoy being able to craft my own croutons, to my own perfection.

When  I decided to make a Caesar salad pizza, I went into it looking at my pizza dough as my crouton. We’ll cook the dough naked, right on top of our 500 degree Baking Steel and create a Caesar salad with one big crouton. It’s going to be amazing.

For the dressing, I went back to Fig’s days. We used to make this incredible eggless Caesar dressing that is still my favorite today.
