Grilled Chicken Caesar Pizza
Recipe from: Lisa Chaudoir

3 (4-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 envelope Caesar salad dressing mix
6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 (16-ounce) Italian bread shell
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
3 large leaves romaine, coarsely chopped
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped

Place the chicken in a large sealable plastic bag. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the dressing mix. Combine the remaining dressing mix, 5 tablespoons of the olive oil and white wine vinegar in a jar with a tightfitting lid. Cover the jar and shake to mix. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the olive oil mixture. Pour the remaining olive oil mixture over the chicken, tossing to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for several hours, turning occasionally. Preheat the grill or broiler. Remove the chicken from the bag; discard the marinade. Grill over hot coals or broil for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Cut the chicken into thin slices. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Brush the bread shell with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix the reserved 1 tablespoon dressing mix and Parmesan cheese in a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle over the top. Place the bread shell on a round pizza pan. Bake for 5 minutes or until crisp. Arrange the chicken on the baked bread shell. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes or until the cheese melts. Toss the romaine and tomatoes in a medium mixing bowl. Drizzle with the reserved olive oil mixture, stirring until coated. Cut the pizza into 6 wedges. Top each wedge with some of lettuce mixture. Yield: 6 servings
