Ok, I admit it. I have a fixation with pizza. Last week Taco pizza, and before that, Breakfast pizza, Puff pastry pizza pockets, Garlic mashed potato pizza, Garlic butter, chicken, vegetable and feta cheese pizza,
and finally my favorite Pizza dough recipe where I made chicken pesto stromboli. Yikes, I didn’t realize exactly how many times I’ve posted pizza recipes till I looked back and figured it out. I get it honestly though, as we made pizza every Friday night growing up.
Today’s recipe I adapted from Pillsbury’s Annual Recipes 2010 cookbook which my sweet mom bought me for Christmas. We share a love of cookbooks.

This makes a tasty meal of its own, but if you’re looking for something heartier, you could always add a baked pasta or lasagna soup. I really enjoyed this salad, and I hope you do too.
