Well. Aldi went and did it. They are now selling Pizza Crusts! YAY!!! Pre-made, easy prep, pizza crusts. Like the expensive ones you can buy in the regular grocery stores, but better and cheaper. Oh yeah. I'm a happy camper! I've had a craving for Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza that a friend of mine introduced me to a few years ago (Thank you, Betsy!). And now, I can make it Aldified! :)
They sell regular crust and thin crust. For this recipe, I used the Thin Crust, but if you prefer a doughier crust, you may do the same with the thicker crusts, just be sure to adjust cooking times accordingly!
PS. Would have taken more pictures HOWEVER it was all gone but this one piece when I remembered to take them!!! EEEK!!!!
Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza
1 Package Mama Cozzi's Thin Pizza Crusts
1 jar Tuscan Garden Ranch Dressing
2 Grilled Kirkwood Chicken Breasts
1 large tomatoes, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1 Package Tuscan Garden Real Bacon Bits
2-4 Cups Friendly Farms Shredded Colby Jack Cheese (this will depend on how cheesy you like it!)
Stonemill Essentials Italian Seasoning Blend
Preheat Oven to 425.
Once heated place crusts in the oven for about 5 minutes - just to prebake a LITTLE bit. This step allows for a crispier crust. Place right on the oven rack if possible. (save the sauce packets for another purpose, you will not be using them for these pizzas!)
Remove from oven. Allow to cool slightly.
Dice chicken in small pieces and put about half cup of dressing over chicken just to "moisten" it.
Squeeze 3/4 cup of dressing onto the top of each crust and spread out. Sprinkle about 3/4 cup of the cheese over top of each crust. Top with half of the ranch-moistened chicken over top. Add half of the diced tomatoe to each pizza, and half of the onion dices to each pizza. Top with another 1/2-3/4 cup cheese and sprinkle bacon bits over each pizza.
Place back on oven rack and bake about 5-7 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
Allow to cool for a minute or two before slicing.
