Copycat Mod Pizza, Pizza Salad | No more pizza with the salad on the side! Make your own pizza salad! This new twist on a cheese pizza is great as a dinner for 4 or an appetizer for 6. This pizza is fashioned after one of my favorite pizza joints…Mod Pizza. It’s like no other pizza place I’ve ever been to. You step up to a counter with all kinds of toppings from meats, cheeses and vegetables. You’re allowed to put as much as you want on your pizza. Same goes for building that perfect salad.
Starting with a store bought thin pizza crust I decided to add lot more flavor with the oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. The addition of the salad adds even more flavor! Once the dressing hits the bread it’s magical! Not only does it flavor the salad but the bread soaks up the flavor too! I’d say that’s a wonderful way to enjoy pizza and a salad on a hot summer’s night.
LET’S MAKE A PIZZA SALAD!
Add a sprinkle of salt, pepper and rosemary and brush on olive oil.
Add cheese and bake until the cheese is melted.
The salad! Oh…the salad! It has all my favorite things!
