Pizza is such a great delicacy with a lot of options for varying the flavor and the nutritional value. The main key to making a perfect pizza is creating the perfect dough to make a perfect crust.
Aside from that, you can put toppings and sauces that will change the flavor. For example, the delicious Garlic Ranch Recipe is a great combination of flavor and toppings.
Most people would prefer meat as toppings because of the rich flavor and protein content. Others prefer all-vegetables for a healthier option and an easier recipe.
But combining the two is never disappointing. Heaving a little bit of meat on your pizza plus vegetables will give you both the flavor and the healthy nutrients that you want.
You can also create the perfect pizza with less time. Although it is not the best option, store-bought pizza dough is great for people who have a busy schedule.
Making your own pizza dough is still the best option to get a fresh taste on your pizza but it does not apply to all of us as it requires a lot of time to make.
Creating a few tweaks on your pizza is always good. We have some recipes that mix the best ranch, cheese, and chicken to get a burst of flavor in every bite.
So if you want to change your pizza recipe a little bit, then you can follow any of these recipes that will surely give you the best results with a few practices.
Garlic-Ranch Chicken Pizza Recipe
The Garlic-Ranch Sauce
– 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
– 2 and a half tablespoons of milk
– 2 tablespoons of sour cream
– Half teaspoon of garlic salt
– 1/8 teaspoon of dill weed
– 1/8 teaspoon of dried parsley flakes
– Half teaspoon of onion powder
– Salt and black pepper to taste
Step 1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix well until all the salt and other powders are dissolved into the liquid ingredients.
You can use a food processor to get a more even finish on the sauce. This way, all the surface of the pizza will have an even taste.
Make sure that you put the right amount of salt and pepper to enhance the flavor. After mixing, set the sauce aside and then proceed to the other parts of the pizza.

The Pizza Crust
– 1 ball of pizza dough
– 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
– 1 cup of cooked and shredded chicken
– Half cup of cooked and crumbled bacon
– 2 thinly sliced tomatoes
Step 1. Spread the dough on a well-floured surface and make a 12 to a 14-inch round dough. Make sure that you spread the dough well and flatten it out.
While doing so, you should be preheating the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit along with the pizza stone or pizza pan that you will use.
Step 2. Get the Garlic Ranch that you have just made and then generously spread it on the pizza dough.
Step 3. Spread one cup of the mozzarella cheese on top of the ranch sauce. This way, you can use the other cup of mozzarella to sandwich the other ingredients between two layers of tasty cheese.
Step 4. Get the chicken, bacon, and tomatoes. Spread them evenly over the pizza dough and on top of the first cup of mozzarella cheese.
Make sure that you get the toppings evenly distributed on the surface to prevent an area on the pizza that is too dense which might damage the crispiness of the crust.
Step 5. Sprinkle the other cup of mozzarella cheese on top of the chicken, bacon, and tomatoes. From there, you can place the pizza on the pizza stone.
Step 6. Bake the pizza in the oven for ten minutes or when the crust has turned golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
Step 7. Slice the pizza and serve.
If you have a ready-made ranch dressing, then we also have a recipe here that you can follow. This will take less time since you do not have to prepare all the ingredients.
– 1 ball of pizza dough
– Half cup of ranch dressing
– 1 sliced and diced tomato
– 1 teaspoon of olive oil
– A quarter cup of chopped onions
– 1 cup of mozzarella cheese (shredded)
– 1 cup of cheddar cheese (shredded)
– A quarter cup of parmesan cheese
– 8 ounces of boneless chicken (diced)
– Bacon of your choice
– Salt, pepper, and garlic to taste
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees as well as the pizza stone or pizza pan that you are going to use.
Step 2. Spread the pizza dough on a well-floured surface and make a round 14-inch pizza. You can use larger pizza dough to accommodate the toppings if you have too many.
Step 3. While waiting for the oven and the pizza stone to heat at the right temperature, cook the chicken and bacon on a cast-iron skillet.
Step 4. Use a little bit of the garlic while cooking the chicken to get more flavor in it. Let the chicken cook until it changes color or when it turns golden brown.
Use the remaining oil on the skillet to fry the bacon. Make it crispy or whatever you want and then cut them into small bits.
Step 5. Spread the ranch dressing over the crust. Make sure to spread it evenly leaving about half an inch of space on the edges.
Step 6. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of the ranch dressing.
Step 7. Carefully place the chicken, bacon, tomatoes, and green onions on the pizza. Finish the toppings with the remaining cheese and then place the pizza on the pizza stone.
Step 8. Bake the pizza for 10 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the toppings. Once the cheeses are bubbling and the pizza crust is golden brown, take it out of the oven.
Step 9. Place the pizza on a flat surface and then sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper on top. Put as much or as few as you want to depend on how you want the pizza to taste.
Let it rest for a bit and then slice and serve. Here is a video that you can use as a guide-
Use A Pizza Stone
We recommend that you use a pizza stone in order to make the best pizza. Pizza stones are porous in nature so they absorb all the moisture that comes from the pizza.
This way, they make the crust crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. You also get a lot of oven spring when using a pizza stone making the dough rise better.
If a pizza stone is not available in your household, then you have other options such as a cast-iron skillet or the more common pizza pan.
Despite using meat such as chicken, you should slice your pizza toppings as thinly as you can. This is to make sure that they cook along with the other ingredients.
The dough and the cheese will cook quickly. That is why you need the other ingredients to keep up with the speed so you need to slice them thinly or pre-cook them.
A thinner slice on the toppings will also make the crust better as you do not get dense areas that will give a softer texture on certain parts of the crust.
You can add other ingredients that you want to give the pizza more texture and flavors. We suggest that you add some more vegetables or more meat for kids.
It is always great to combine vegetables with meat so that kids would want it more. This way, they get to enjoy the pizza while eating their greens.
Pizza is a great food that you can experiment with. Get your pizza stone and ovens ready and then create the most unique and delicious pizza that you can.
