Costco sells these Stromboli-style chicken bakes at there food courts and you can make them at home from scratch!

Ingredients

  • 1.3 lbs Refrigerated Pizza dough 1 ball of dough from my pizza dough recipe
  • 9 oz cooked chicken breast pieces
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese grated
  • 2/3 cups parmesan cheese divided
  • 4 slices cooked bacon chopped
  • 1/3 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Cut pizza dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll out each piece to an 11 by 8-inch rectangle. Set aside.
  • Combine all the filling ingredients, RESERVING 1/2 cup of mozzarella, 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese and 3 tbsp of creamy Caesars dressing for the topping.
  • Place 1 cup of filling across the center of each piece of dough. Slightly fold in the sides and start rolling dough from the bottom up. Pinch seams and place onto a greased pan.
  • Brush tops with reserved dressing and sprinkle with reserved cheeses. Bake 20 minutes on bottom rack.

Notes

NOTE: 1.3 pounds of dough is equivalent to 1 (1lb & 6oz) ball of dough from my pizza dough recipe.
Chicken breast pieces: I like to coarsely chop the ready to use Perdue chicken breast pieces from the bag as some chunks are huge. 
I love to use creamy ranch dressing in place of Caesars dressing. 
TO FREEZE CHICKEN BAKES: Follow the instructions given only reducing the baking time to 10 minutes. Cool completely then wrap each chicken bake in foil and freeze. To heat bake frozen in a preheated 400°F oven for 35-40 minutes or microwave on high for 4 minutes. 
FOR EXTRA CRISP BOTTOM: brush bottoms with creamy dressing instead of oil.
