Chopped Salad Pizza

(Adapted from Pinch of Yum)

Prep Time: 20 minutes   Cook Time: 15 minutes     Total Time: 35 minutes

 

For the Chopped Salad:

Romaine Lettuce, chopped into smaller than typical sized bites

Cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered

Chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Salami, sliced into thin slices and quartered

Cheese – feta, parmesan, or mozzarella

Pepperoncini, dice if needed for bite size or smaller pieces

Olives, sliced or whole

Parsley – or any other herbs you like

 

For Italian dressing, blend these ingredients until smooth and creamy: 3/4 cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 tablespoons water, salt to taste, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 clove garlic

 

 

For the Pizza: 

Pizza crust, such as Flatout Flatbread Crust or Naan Bread

Tomato sauce

Mozzarella cheese

 

Instructions:

 

Salad: Chop all your salad ingredients and toss with some dressing. Allow 10-15 minutes to sit and marinate together in the dressing.

 

Pizza: Bake your crust for about 5-7 minutes at 375 degrees to get it crispy. If it needs more time, give it up to 10 minutes. Top with a light layer of sauce and cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted.

 

Assembly: Top the pizza with the salad. Cut and serve.

 

 

Notes:

This recipe makes quite a bit of dressing so you’ll probably have some leftover – it goes well with just about everything.
