Garlic Ranch Chicken Pizza

Garlic Ranch Chicken Pizza
-Alyssa Griffeth-

1 large pizza dough
3/4 c. ranch dressing (made from Hidden Valley Ranch Packet)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 c. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c. bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c. chicken, cooked and cubed
2-3 tomatoes, sliced

Pizza Dough:
Combine the following ingredients and let yeast activate for at least 5 minutes:
1 T. yeast
1 T. sugar
1 ½ c. warm water
Then add:
1 tsp. salt
4 c. flour

Mix well and then knead for about 5 minutes, or until dough is soft and pliable. (I always use the dough hook attachment on my KitchenAid and just let it do its thing!)

Cover with wet paper towels and a dish towel and let rise in 170 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until double in size. Spread dough evenly over greased pizza pan or cookie sheet. (I spray the edges with FF spray butter and garlic salt for flavor.) Let rise, covered in oven for 7 more minutes. Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees. Bake the dough for 5 minutes before adding toppings. This will ensure that it is not doughy in the middle.

Mix ranch dressing and crushed garlic together then spread evenly on the pizza dough. Add chicken and bacon. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cheese over that, add the tomatoes, then add the remaining cheese. Put in the oven at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes (or until crust is a nice golden-brown).
