You can add your favorite veggies to this salad pizza combo and adding a big handful of chopped salami is a delicious way to add a burst of flavor. You can go with a thick crust or a thin crust for this pizza, but a crispy and crackly thin crust is the absolutely best with this!
To start, prepare your pizza and pop it in the oven to start baking. While it’s baking, start to chop and mix all your salad ingredients. The more veggies, the better! A few of my favorite toppings are red onion, tomatoes, black olive, pepperoncini peppers, and salami, but you can add bell peppers, capers, garbanzo beans, pepperoni and more! Add all those yummy ingredients to your salad mix (Revolution Farms Great Lakes Gourmet is my favorite).
For my Michigan readers, I have to share my secret to the best salads: Revolution Farms salad greens! Revolution Farms salad greens are grown right here in Michigan and they freshest and crispest greens you can find. Each greenhouse grown GMO-free lettuce leaf are protected from pests and detrimental weather for the best salad you can find this side of the “Mitten”.
Since it’s grown locally, their salad blends spend less time in transportation which is not only more eco-friendly, but results in fresher and more nutrient dense greens (the longer the period from harvest to plate can cause nutrient degradation). Greenhouse farming is a great solution to many of the sustainability challenges that companies face as it allows Revolution Farms to use 90% less water and 90% less land when growing their greens. Since they deliver regionally (many grocers and will be in Meijer stores soon – you can check for a store near you here), Revolution Farms salad greens travel 95 percent fewer miles in a truck than other leading year-round lettuce farms currently supplying Midwest stores.
Once your veggies are all set, add all those goodies to a bowl and move on to making your vinaigrette. The vinaigrette is super simple to make with pantry staples! If you want to take out a step, simple sub in with your favorite Italian dressing, but I promise that this vinaigrette has the perfect tangy flavor to piece everything together. A few minutes before your pizza is done cooking, mix your vinaigrette (you won’t need to use all of it as there may be extra) and salad together and let sit for a few minutes.
Once the pizza is all set, top with your delicious chopped salad and get ready to dive in. It’s messy, but oh-so-good! Grab a fork, some extra napkins and enjoy!
