Servings: two as a meal or four as an appetizer
The pungent tanginess of a well-made Caesar salad is a restaurant staple. In this pizza, the grilled crust stands in for the croutons and the Parmigiano-Reggiano melts into the chicken for a more intense Caesar experience, one that Brutus would never betray. You can use store-bought pizza dough or make your own.
This recipe is excerpted from Pizza on the Grill.
Brush the chicken breast with 1 Tbs. of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the cooking grate directly over the heat and grill until no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside and, when almost ready to use, cut into 14-inch-thick strips.
Roll out and shape the dough, then grill the first side of the crust per the master instructions below. Use tongs to transfer it from the grill to a peel or rimless baking sheet. Flip the crust to reveal the grilled side.
Spread the entire surface with the garlic paste, then top with the chicken and sprinkle with the Fontina.
Finish grilling the pizza per the master instructions below.
Just before the pizza is done, toss the romaine with the dressing and 1 Tbs. of the Parmigiano in a medium bowl. Remove the pizza from the grill and immediately top with dressed romaine. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 Tbs. Parmigiano and season with salt and pepper. Slice and serve immediately.
For Charcoal Grills
Try a not-too-oaky California Chardonnay.
Top the salad greens with anchovies (and if you are really, really adventurous, use white anchovies).
