Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425º. Lightly brush a cookie sheet with 1 tbsp of oil. Sprinkle with cornmeal if desired.

  3. In a large bowl mix lettuce, chicken, mozzarella, both tomatoes, basil and pancetta.
  4. Unroll pizza crust dough and cut into 4 rectangles using pizza cutter. Place them on cookie sheet and press each one into an 8x6 oval, folding over edges of dough to form a rim.
  5. Brush remaining oil over dough ovals, sprinkle evenly with Italian seasoning and asiago cheese. Bake 11-13 or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.

Incredible! My whole family LOVED this and none of them are salad lovers. What a great way to get them to eat their greens. I've only had the recipe a week and so far I've made it twice; it's that good!
