Garlic Ranch Chicken Pizza

Lately I’ve been in sort of a “what to fix for dinner” rut.

I’m tired of the same old stuff, yet my family it too picky to try something “too new”.

Recently I ran across a pizza recipe that I thought sounded good, but I would “tweak” a little to our liking.

With the combination of chicken, ranch and cheese on a pizza crust, I knew I couldn’t go wrong!

The only thing I would do different next time is the crust – I’d like to try one of the frozen pizza dough and make our own crust – I bought the packaged pizza crust.

Garlic Ranch Chicken Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 pizza crust
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 tomato,sliced and diced
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 Parmesan cheese
  • 8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast halves, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • garlic (to taste)
  • bacon bits (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper (to taste)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Put pizza crust on pizza stone, drizzle with olive oil and spread over crust with brush.
  3. Saute chicken in skillet with olive oil and garlic (I used 1tsp of the jarred minced garlic).
  4. Spread Ranch dressing over crust.
  5. Sprinkle with cooked chicken, cheeses, tomatoes, green onions and bacon bits. (we made 2 pizza’s one with out the bacon bits)
  6. Place in oven for 20 mins. or until cheese is melted. Let rest for several minutes, then cut and serve.

Notes

I used my Pampered Chef pizza stone and heated it in the oven before putting the pizza on it.

Hubby and I enjoyed the pizza with the bacon bits the most, while Sunshine preferred no bacon bits.

    EWW EWW Cheryl! I got a good one for you that I just did.

    Get like a baboli crust and spread classico pesto on it instead of marinara. Then put sliced sliced tomatoes. We dont do tomatoes around here so ours was tomato free. LOL Then strips of chicken breast (we used left over nuggets from Wills party at Chick fil a sliced up) then on top of that put sliced up mozzarella balls that come marinaded. Top with finely chopped fresh basil. 450 for 8 minutes or so and you got a winner trust me. I topped mine after it was cooked with fresh spinach.

    Love and Prayers,

    Tim

    If you have Trader Joe's or Winco near you check the cheese aisle near the mozzarella, they sell balls of fresh pizza dough in clear plastic bags. Both places sell them for less than $2! At home you simply roll them out on your pizza pan/stone, add toppings of your choice and bake. I just made one last night with pizza sauce, mozzarella, crumbled bacon, diced chicken, fresh basil and chopped avocado. YUM!
