Pizza Part Deux: Chicken Bacon Ranch

So, pizza again. Last time we discussed pizza, we talked about making  pizza dough and tomato based sauces for it.

Today we’ll work on a pizza with a different kind of sauce, Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza.

First, set the chicken breast to sauté in a skillet with a little oil. You can leave it whole and cut after cooking, or slice it beforehand.

In another pan, cook the bacon. I prefer mine to be somewhat soft cooked, but most people like it crispy crumbly.

When both are done, cut the chicken into small pieces and chop up the bacon.

While the meats are cooking, prepare the sauce. For a ranch sauce, I like to mix the ranch dressing with mayonnaise. The mayonnaise really does enhance the flavor of the dressing, making it creamier and more flavorful.

Press your dough into the greased pan, and spread the ranch/mayo sauce evenly on it. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over it.

Next put the cut up chicken and bacon on it. And you’re ready to pop it into your pre-heated 425° oven, for 18 minutes, to make this…

…come out like this! Enjoy! ~TMMF
