Chicken Ranch Pizza

Chicken Ranch PizzaSunny and windy.  Those are the two adjectives that describe my weather just about every day.  One is welcomed, the other is loathed, although our patio furniture suffers from both.  The extreme wind keeps us from playing outdoors, while the sun shining through my windows makes this bearable.

While staying indoors because of the high degree temperatures and insane winds, I took advantage of the opportunity to make a few different condiments.  One of which was homemade ranch dressing (recipe soon to appear).  This pizza was one of the ways I used up my ranch dressing.  This household loves pizza and although I often make our usual favorites, I always love the chance to try a new variation.  This pizza uses ranch dressing instead of the typical tomato sauce.  It is then topped with some of our favorites, including chicken, crispy bacon, diced tomatoes, green onions and two different types of pizza cheese.  I’ve made this a few times already, loving it more and more with every bite.

Chicken Ranch Pizza

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 1 12-inch pizza

Serving Size: 2 slices

  • 1 prepared (12-inch) pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese*
  • 1 cooked chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked crisp, crumbled
  • 1 tomato, seeded and diced small
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese*
  • *Alternatively, use Sargento's Pizza Cheese

Place pizza stone in the lower third of the oven. Heat the oven and stone to 500 degrees for at least 30 minutes. Shape the pizza crust dough and transfer to a pizza peel or sheet of parchment paper dusted with semolina or cornmeal.

Evenly spread the ranch dressing over the pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border for the outer crust. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese, then layer the chicken, bacon, tomatoes and green onions. Top with the cheddar cheese.

Slide the pizza onto the hot stone. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

  1. I make this pizza all the time. If you want to add another litte wrinkle, try it with some cut up broccoli and/or cauliflower. Delicious.

  2. Pizza is one of my favorites and I love trying different variations as well. This one will be added to the list!

  3. I do love to dip my pizza bones (crusts)in ranch dressing before I eat them. However, it sounds to me like it may be a little bit of a ranch overload if you substitute it for the tomato sauce. Although, I’ll try most anything at least once.

  4. Love the design of your site! And this pizza? Yum!

  5. Oh my! I am drooling over here. I’m going to have to make this later this week. I already picked up some pizza dough from Trader Joe’s that I can use in place of the homemade pizza dough (although I’ll have to try that recipe soon too!).

  6. Great pizza idea! i’m always looking for new flavours.

  7. This looks SUPER SUPER yummy!!!

  8. I made this over the weekend, and it was so yummy and simple! My husband devoured it! Thanks for another great recipe!
