Anchovy Caesar Salad on Focaccia

Ingredients

  • 1 16oz. package frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • Flour
  • Olive oil
  • Dried oregano
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Jason® Plain Bread Crumbs
  • 1-2 oz. package Season® Anchovies, drained
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Caesar salad dressing
  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough and shape into four 6-inch rounds. Drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with oregano and fresh black pepper. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, pour bread crumbs into a bowl. Coat each anchovy fillet with bread crumbs, tossing to coat well. Coat a skillet with olive oil and set the heat to medium (350ºF). Pan fry a few seconds on both sides in the hot oil. Transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
