We took our boss out to lunch to California Pizza Kitchen for Boss' day last week. I normally order the Santa Fe Chicken Pizza or mushroom ravioli. I decided to be adventurous and try something different from the menu. So I tried their California Club Pizza and it was really good. It was so simple but had all kinds of different flavors. The saltiness of the bacon, the crunch and creaminess from the salad on top, and the butteriness from the avocado. So I decided to replicate it at home. Hubby took a look at his meal and his eyes bugged out. He was quite impressed.
1 tube of prepared pizza dough (like Pillsbury)
slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
1 cup cooked chicken, cubed
1/2 cup cooked bacon bits
1 large tomato, sliced thinly
shredded lettuce, dressed in a mayonnaise dressing (mayonnaise splashed with a little milk)
1) Preheat oven to 425 deg. F. Spread pizza dough on an ungreased cookie sheet. Layer slices of the mozzarella cheese on top of dough. Evenly spread cooked chicken over the cheese. Sprinkle bacon bits. Place tomato slices evenly on top. Bake for 15 minutes.
2) Cut pizza in slices. Place salad mixture on top of each slices and top with avocado.
