Caesar Salad Pizza Toppings:
While the pizza crust is in the oven, prepare a classic Caesar Salad for your topping. For your salad, wash the lettuce and dry it in a strainer or salad spinner, then tear into bite size pieces. Wash the tomatoes and cut into quarters. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces and fry them in a pan with oil until they are golden brown and cooked through. Slice the Parmesan into fine shavings using a potato peeler.
Caesar Salad Dressing:
Boil the egg about a minute and a half, then briefly run it under cold water, and peel it. Now, mix the egg with the olive oil, capers, mustard, lemon juice, Tabasco and pepper. Peel the garlic clove and chop it into very fine pieces and mix into the dressing.
The crust should be out of the oven by now and you can spread the Pesto Rosso evenly on it. Toss together the lettuce, tomatoes, chicken and Parmesan in the salad dressing then place on the pizza.
Now your Caesar Salad Pizzas are ready to be served – enjoy!
