Chicken Bacon Ranch Calzone

Any time we get a sandwich while we are out Sunshine will always get chicken and bacon with ranch dressing……and a little hot sauce.

This week while I was looking for some new dinner ideas, I came across ham and cheese calzones on and quickly knew it would be a hit if I changed it up a bit.

Here’s how we made them…….of course you could change them up to your liking!

Chicken Bacon Ranch Calzones


  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust
  • cooked chicken (I bought a rotisserie chicken, pulled it apart and put the rest away for another meal)
  • 8-10 slices of pre cooked bacon
  • 4-6 slices of Chipotle Cheddar Cheese
  • Ranch dressing
  • Franks Hot Sauce
  • Tomato slices


  1. Heat oven to 400°. Unroll pizza dough on floured surface. I used a long piece of wax paper covered in flour. Pat out dough to 16?x12? rectangle. Cut dough into 4 pieces.
  2. Place chicken, bacon, and cheese onto dough within 1/2? of sides. Top with Ranch dressing and hot sauce and spread. Top with tomato slice if desired (I’m the only one who ate tomato on mine and it was VERY tasty if you like tomatoes). Fold each rectangle in half, press edges down and seal by pressing with a fork (I floured my fork so it didn’t stick to the dough). Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake 16 to 18 mins. or until golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and cut in half with pizza cutter.
