Not just a recipe for spinach caesar salad, today’s recipe incorporates a number of my individual recipes.

The Lemon and Bacon Glazed Chicken recipe makes an excellent club sandwich as well. The honey and oat bran pizza crust is great as a plain cheese pizza to top with the spinach caesar salad too.

In my view, crisp cooked bacon is an essential part of any great caesar salad.

I first got the idea from a restaurant I visited in my travels many years ago. They had a whole menu of delicious salads on various types of cheese pizzas and they were all delicious.

NOTE: I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here. 

I decided to try a version myself and with the addition of the chicken, it makes a very satisfying lunch or dinner for sure.

Instructions

To prepare the Lemon and Bacon Glazed Chicken

  1. Begin by fully cooking the bacon in a large heavy bottom skillet. Remove the bacon and set aside. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and add them to the pan . Fully cook them over medium heat, about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the size of the breasts. Remove the chicken breasts, pat off the excess bacon fat with paper towels and set aside to rest while you make the glaze.
  2. To make the glaze, drain off all the bacon fat from the skillet. Return the pan to the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Cook only for about a minute until the glaze thickens. At this point you can return the breasts to the pan to glaze them or cut in slices and toss in the glaze, depending upon how you wish to serve them.

To prepare Whole Wheat and Oatbran Pizza dough.

  1. MAKES ENOUGH FOR 6 INDIVIDUAL PIZZAS
  2. Mix dry ingredients together including the salt and yeast, except for one cup of the flour. Add the warm water, oil and honey and mix very well with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes. Add the remaining flour a little at a time until dough forms. Remove to a floured breadboard or your counter top and knead for an additional 5 minutes. Allow dough to rest for ½ hour, covered in a warm place. Knead again for 5 minutes and split dough into 6 portions and allow to rest for 20 minutes before rolling your dough into the desired size.

To prepare the pizzas

  1. Preheat your pizza stone in middle rack of your oven for half an hour at 450 degrees F.
  2. Stretch or roll your pizza dough into 8 inch rounds and place one on a wooden peel that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. The cornmeal will allow the pizza to slide off the peel (I’ve even used a thin piece of cardboard in a pinch if you do not have a peel.) Make sure your pizza is sliding on the cornmeal base before adding your toppings. Brush each dough round with 1tbsp garlic olive oil

Top each pizza with:

  1. ounces grated part skim mozzarella cheese
  2. Grind some black pepper over the whole pizza.
  3. Shake your peel to make sure the pizza is not stuck. Slide the pizza onto the hot stone, shaking it slightly in a back and forth motion as you slowly retract the wooden peel.
  4. Bake for 8-12 minutes depending upon your oven. Bottom and top should be nicely browned.

To assemble the dish:

  1. Toss freshly washed and dried spinach with the caesar dressing and place on top of the cooked pizza. Top with the precooked bacon, glazed chicken and a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper. Serve.
