Tuna or Chicken Melt Pizza

I love making classics into pizza!!! This is good with either chicken salad or tuna salad, of if you don't want a pizza this is a fantastic basic tuna or chicken salad recipe.

1 pre-baked pizza crust, I used my GF Foccacia with 2 tsp caraway seeds added(and I only baked it half-way), you can use an actual rye bread crust like this one if you like.

Tuna or Chicken Salad Ingredients:
1lb tuna (Here is a great homemade recipe or you can use 3 cans, drained well)
1 lb chicken breast, cooked and shredded

1/4 cup finely diced celery
1/3 cup mayo(plus or minus to your preference)
2 TB dijon mustard
2 TB chopped green onion
1 TB parsley
1 tsp dill
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp cayenne
salt and pepper to taste

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used swiss and  mozzarella, you can use cheddar, pepper jack or ? all up to you)
1-2 TB Olive Oil
1 clove Minced Garlic
To taste:
Fresh tomato slices
Baby Spinach Leaves

Combine all the "Salad" ingredients.

Mix well and allow to mingle for 30 minutes

Preheat oven to 350
Brush your crust with olive oil and sprinkle with minced garlic.

Layer Spinach Leaves to taste.

Spread your tuna / chicken salad over the pizza crust, arrange tomato slices,

top with cheese and bake 10-15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and browned.

 I even broiled it for a few minutes, we like our cheese toasty.
