Pizza Salad

Pizza Salad is a quick and easy dinner your family is sure to love. It is a fun and delicious dinner to change up your regular pizza night.

Pizza Salad

If you have read my site for long you know I love quick and easy recipes. You probably also know that I love salad. I also love making salads that my whole family will love. In other words meaty main dish type salads.

We eat a lot of salad especially during the warmer months of the year. They are easy to make. They are also a pretty healthy one dish meal that does not require the use of my oven.

I love all those things during the spring and summer.

Pizza Salad

I have been having fun trying all kinds of new salad combinations. Pizza salad was one of the recent ones that I came up with.

We have a pizza pasta salad that we love. I make it all the time during the summer. Today’s version though is a green salad with homemade dressing and all the fun toppings of pizza.

Pizza Salad

We topped our pizza salad with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, cheese, olives, peppers, and tomatoes, but you can easily change this up.

You could add other types of meat or you could make it meatless. Mushrooms would be delicious on this too.

The homemade dressing is what makes this so good. Yes, you could easily use a store bought dressing, but homemade salad dressing is easy to make and tastes so much better. It is well worth taking the time to make it.

Homemade dressing is not hard to make and it tastes so much better than the store bought kind. 

If you need a fun way to change up pizza night this summer make this salad! 

Croutons are optional but delicious. My homemade croutons and my gluten free croutons are both easy to make and are so good on top of this salad or any salad this summer.

  1. reminds me of a salad I made at the grocery store’s salad bar where I worked when I was in college in the 80s 🙂 I think we added marinated mushrooms and used Italian dressing

  2. This dressing sounds divine! Can not wait to make this!
