Chicken Caesar Pizza

Chicken Caesar Pizza is going to transform your pizza night. Tender chicken, Caesar dressing with tasty toppings baked to a golden brown delight. If you want to change up your pizza recipe, try this! You won’t be sorry! 

I eat Caesar salad a couple of times a week and I wondered what it would be like to use Renee’s Mighty Caesar salad dressing on a pizza. Boy was it a good thing! I think it tastes even better on pizza than it does on a salad.

Chicken Caesar Pizza - Your favorite salad can also be your favorite homemade pizza recipe! Ditch the lettuce and make this simple crowdpleaser. Imagine pizza crust smothered in creamy Caesar dressing, topped with bacon, chicken and cheese!


Chicken Caesar Pizza

The ingredients are pretty simple: pizza dough, Caesar salad dressing (I LOVE Renee’s Mighty Caesar!), bacon, chicken breasts, Parmesan and mozzarella cheese and a little Italian seasoning. Perfection in a pan!

As it was baking in the oven, my kitchen filled with a deliciously garlicky aroma. I think baking it really accentuated the flavour.

    What Type of Chicken Do You Use for Chicken Caesar Pizza

    You can use pre-cooked diced or shredded chicken for this pizza. I have bought pre-cooked chicken and used that before. Or you can cook up some breast or tenderloins and dice it up. Just make sure that you don’t use a chicken that has a ton of seasoning or it will affect the flavor of your pizza. 

    Homemade Dough vs Store-Bought Pizza Dough

    Well, this is all about the preference of what you like. I find that the refrigerator Pillsbury dough works great, and offers a homemade crust flavor. You just roll it out and then spread to shape. Then you can pre-bake the dough to help get the dough fully cooked. I bake it for eight minutes before I add on the toppings.

    How to Make Chicken Caesar Pizza

    Prep your dough and lay it out on the pan, and then pre-bake for 8 minutes. Once the dough is partially cooked, remove and then spread on the Caesar dressing. Make sure you leave a gap around the edge to act as the crust. Then top with bacon and chicken, and both kinds of cheese. Add on your Italian seasoning, and bake an additional 7-10 minutes.  

    Can I Make This Chicken Caesar Pizza on Naan Bread 

    Yes, I have made this recipe using naan bread as the pizza crust before. The Caesar pairs really well with the bread and it gives it a tasty flavor that is different than straight pizza crust.

    How Do You Keep Homemade Pizza from Getting Soggy 

    The key is pre-cooking your pizza dough for a little bit before adding on your toppings. Then in a preheated oven finish cooking the pizza. It will work great at giving you that crispy crust you are looking for. 

    Can You Store Leftover Caesar Pizza 

    Absolutely. Simply allow the pizza to cool down and then place in an airtight container or sealable bag. Store up to three days in the fridge. You can eat the leftovers cold or warm them up if you prefer.

    What to Serve with Caesar Pizza 

    • Salad | Looking for a lighter side, reach for a salad. I love doing a caesar salad with a little drizzle of dressing. It helps carry on the theme of Caesar. 
    • Veggies | Pair crisp fresh veggies as a side for a nice crunchy texture. If you love dip to pair with your favorite dip as well. 
    • Breadsticks | Whip up some breadsticks or even garlic bread for even more pizza inspired recipes!
