Pizza Salad

Delish Pizza Salad is hearty & refreshing. All of the flavors of pizza on a bed of greens, topped with a homemade herb dressing!

This salad is great for Summer potlucks and BBQ’s. For more tasty salads try Chinese Pasta Salad, Antipasto Salad, and Chicken Caesar Salad.

Salad Season is Here

I’m so glad it’s “salad season!” I know you can eat salad any time of year, but we especially love it during the Spring and Summer. Are you the same way?! It’s gotten almost too hot to want to BBQ, or meet at the park for lunch, but things start to cool down at night so we’ve been enjoying plenty of time outside later at night.

As we gather with friends and family, we all bring different dishes, usually salads and sides. I found a new recipe on BHG called Pizza Pizzaz Salad that looked delicious, so we gave it a try when we had my husband’s students over for a barbecue.

This Pizza Salad is so tasty and has some of my favorite ingredients including cannellini beans, pepperoni, Feta and Parmesan cheese. You can make a homemade Herb dressing (in the recipe box below) or Italian dressing is great with it too!

Easy Assembly

TOSS TOGETHER! Almost all of these ingredients are prepackaged and only the tomatoes really need to be washed/chopped. That makes for easy prep! Just throw it all together in a bowl, and you have a beautifully assembled salad.

Of course, don’t add the dressing to the salad until right before serving. Or, just serve it on the side and that way your leftovers won’t get soggy.

MAKE AHEAD: To make this salad ahead of time separate the toppings in separate containers and cover them tightly. Store in the refrigerator and assemble it all together right before serving. It should last 1-3 days in the fridge.

Optional add-ins:

  • chopped olives
  • garbanzo beans/chickpeas
  • sliced red onion
  • mushrooms
  • sausage
  • mozzarella cheese
