I’ve always loved pizza. What red-blooded American kid doesn’t right?? Spinach, green beans, salad not covered in a gallon of Hidden Valley – it wasn’t happenin’. But give me a piece of bread covered in cheese and I was absolutely on board.

Nowadays, I like to think that I’ve expanded my edible horizons and am on board with those green things. In fact I’m crazy about them. But my love for pizza….

unparalleled.

And lately, I’ve been craving pizza like a mad woman. It’s taking all of my self control and then some to keep from making, inhaling, and sharing pizza every single day. I don’t know what’s gotten into me but this pizza thing is almost out of control.

Reign it in Tiffany, reign it in.

This bacon chicken and ranch version is something I’ve been wanting to make for a while but for some reason (I have no idea what that could be) I haven’t done it until now. I’ve seen this flavor combo many times, I’ve even ordered it at sandwich shops a few times in the form of a sub or a wrap, but still never tried the actual bacon + chicken + ranch pizza.

Eventually though, a girl’s gotta feed her cravings.

You’re not you when you’re hANGRY. <—— so me it’s not even funny.

So I did it. And like I said, no idea why it took me so long because this pizza was a cinch. Get your crust (as always, I used Miracle Dough – my FAV), slather on the ranch dressing (bonus points if you make your own!!), smother it with cheese, add the bacon and chicken, and bake.

Bada-bing-bada-boom. DONE.

Now, just a heads up… the serving size says that this will feed 3-4 people. That would be referring to 3 people with normal, healthy appetites. My husband and I, we don’t count because we demolished the whole thing between the two of us in 8.6 seconds. But If you’re going to have 2-3 slices, you can feed three or even four people with one of these pizzas.

I’m just sayin’ though, it’s GOOD. So you might want to double it and make a second one if you’re at all worried about how far it’s gonna go. Either way, I doubt you’ll have leftovers. (Always a shame)

OK, I have been craving pizza lately more than I think I ever have. What’s going on with us!
Plus, the boyfriend and I loooove chicken on our pizza. And I am known to dip my pizza into ranch dressing from time to time (/always). So really this is a win win win situation for me.

    Exactly!! My husband still dipped this pizza in additional ranch dressing cause, you know, to be slathered in ranch dressing is just not enough I guess 😉

Hi there. I absolutely love your recipes and drool over your Insta pics. I see you have an e-book but was hoping you had (or are in the process of making) a printed cookbook? An e-book isn’t practical for me. Thank you for listening and please keep the amazing recipes coming.

    Hi Meagan! Thank you so much – you’re so sweet, glad to hear I’m not the only one drooling over all of this food ha! Currently, I’m not working on a printed cookbook but I have been exploring the possibility of starting one this summer – I’ll definitely make a BIG announcement when it happens!! 🙂 Thanks so much for following along and supporting my food-craziness!

This was absolutely delicious! I completely butchered your recipe but your concept was FANTASTIC! I had leftover Tandoori chicken from this weekend so I made a flatbread pizza using that instead. I didn’t quite have enough ranch dressing — and definitely could have used a little more — but my throw together, offshoot, rendition of your recipe was so good I had to come and give you kudos! Can’t wait to try it again in your more traditional fashion! Thanks for a fabulous recipe to add to my wheelhouse!

Delicious!
