Re-create this delicious Cobb salad-inspired pizza from CPK right at home with a few simple ingredients.

Eating out is easy, but did you know making pizza at home is just as simple? My family and I tend to grab food to go way more than we probably should. We love pizza, and I could eat it every single day if I were able. One of my favorite pizzas is the California Cobb pizza from California Pizza Kitchen, or CPK.

This pizza is so delicious and is topped with chicken, crispy bacon, creamy avocado slices, tomato and fresh greens. Basically everything you love about a Cobb salad, but on a pizza. While I used a premade pizza crust to save extra time in the kitchen, you can most certainly make homemade dough if you have the time. And while CPK tosses its greens in a mayonnaise-based dressing, you could easily swap in ranch if you don't want to use the mayo.
