Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza Recipe

    My family loves chicken bacon ranch pizza! It’s their favorite to order when we’re watching football on the weekends. We used to order it from our local pizza place, but then I thought I’d give it a try myself. I came up with an easy recipe, and it costs less to make it at home than it does to order out. The homemade version is a big hit with my family, so with the big game coming up, I thought I’d share the recipe!

    Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

    The perfect food to feed your family's game-day cravings!

    Prep Time:
    Cook time:
    Servings: 8-9 slices


    • pizza crust: 1 8-ounce can (in the refrigerator section)
    • chicken breasts: 2
    • ranch dressing: 1 ¼ cup (½ cup for marinating, ¾ cup for sauce)
    • cream cheese, room temperature: 2 ounces
    • small onion, chopped: ½
    • small green pepper, chopped: 1
    • shredded mozzarella cheese: 1 ½ cups
    • finely shredded Parmesan cheese: ¼ cup
    • shredded cheddar cheese: ½ cup
    • bacon: 2 slices, cooked and chopped


    Step 1: About an hour before you’re ready to start baking the pizza, marinate the chicken breasts in ½ cup of the ranch dressing.

    Step 2: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

    Step 3: Grill the chicken breasts, or bake them in the oven, about 10 minutes on each side or until thoroughly cooked.

    Step 4: While the chicken is cooking, unroll the pizza crust onto a cookie sheet or pizza pan and pre-bake it in the oven for about 5 minutes at 425 degrees F or according to the package directions.

    Step 5: Cook the bacon according to the package directions if you haven’t already, then crumble it.

    Step 6: Once the chicken is cooked, use a serrated knife to carefully slice it into long, thin slices. You can also purchase pre-cooked and sliced chicken tenders in the freezer section if you want to make this pizza even easier!

    Step 7: Mix ¾ cup ranch dressing with the cream cheese with a mixer or food processor.

    Step 8: Spread the ranch-dressing mixture evenly over the top of the pizza.

    Step 9: Top with the mozzarella, the cheddar, then the Parmesan cheeses, then the sliced chicken, crumbled bacon, and diced peppers and onion.

    Step 10: Bake the pizza at 425 degrees F for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese just starts to turn a golden brown around the edges.
