Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a pizza pan or medium baking sheet.
  2. Place chicken in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until no longer pink, and juices run clear. Cool, then either shred or chop into small pieces.
  3. Unroll dough, and press into the prepared pizza pan or baking sheet. Bake crust for 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until it begins to turn golden brown. Remove from oven.
  4. Spread ranch dressing over partially baked crust. Sprinkle on mozzarella cheese. Place tomatoes, green onion, and chicken on top of mozzarella cheese, then top with Cheddar cheese. Return to the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Awesome good! Great departure from traditional pizza toppings and sauce. I used half of a 3 c. flour recipe for bread machine pizza dough rather than the the prepared, refrigerated crust. For added flavor, I seasoned the chicken with salt,pepper,and a little garlic powder and sauteed them in olive oil. I lightly brushed the crust with olive oil before topping with the other ingredients, added sliced, fresh mushrooms, and drizzled about 1 T. of olive oil over the top before baking. This was a fun twist on the traditional pie. I enjoyed making it and enjoyed eating it even more!

Weird!! The ranch dressing as the sauce didn't do it for us. We did grill the chicken first which gave it an awesome flavor. We also determined we don't like Phillsbury crust. I suggest making your own.

This is absolutely delicious. I used a Boboli Thin Crust & seasoned it before I layered the ingredients. I also seasoned the chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic powder & salt/pepper before I cooked it. My husband loved it, too!

This recipe was excellent. I added a little bit of crumbled bacon to give it some extra flavor. Yummy!

I made this for my husband and I to have a quick dinner before girlfriends came over. I used a can of seasoned diced tomatoes (Basil, Oregano, Garlic) versus fresh because I did not have fresh on hand. I think the seasoned canned tomatoes added a little extra flavor.

I was excited to try this recipe as we all use Ranch dressing as a "dip" for our regular pizza. It was so good and a very nice change to regular pizza! I think the key here is: 1)Use a good thick ranch dressing, and rather than measuring it, I just spread it on like I would pizza sauce; 2) A thick pizza crust is key, couldn't see this on a thin crust at all; 3) Make sure your chicken is seasoned how you like it or it will be bland. Another tip is use lots of chicken, mine seemed to disappear when the cheese melted, so I'm going to use more next time. I used the canned tomatoes that were tiny chopped and seasoned and it worked great. I added chopped bacon pieces to half and it was good also. I think I'll try salsa next time. I've also made this with the chicken sauteed in BBQ sauce first, which was a nice change but not as good as the original.

This was fabulous. I diced the tomatoes and took 5 minutes off the cooking time so the crust wouldn't brown too much, but other than that, followed the recipe completely. I thought the ranch would taste funny but it was perfect. My husband thought it was alfredo sauce. Wonderful pizza!

OUTSTANDING! I used a thin crust Boboli, and added chopped marinated artichoke hearts and crumbled bacon to the other toppings. Baked for 20 minutes and it turned out perfectly. This is the best chicken pizza I have made thus far, or so I was told. (Although, the Buffalo Chicken Pizza rates a close second.) Try this - - you will not be disappointed.
