An easy homemade pizza crust smothered in garlic ranch sauce and topped with grilled chicken, bacon, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.

Garlic-Ranch Chicken Pizza

We are a little bit obsessed with homemade pizza at our house! And by obsessed I mean we make some almost every weekend! We have our favorites of course, like Barbecue Chicken Pizza, classic cheese, and this Garlic-Ranch Chicken Pizza which I’m so excited to share!  It has a deliciously easy homemade sauce and all of the toppings I love–tomatoes, chicken, bacon, and mozzarella cheese! It’s delicious!!

Garlic-Ranch Chicken Pizza

But the real deal maker for this pizza, is the my perfect homemade pizza crust. I’ve tried many, many recipes over the years and I’ve finally settled on the perfect one! It’s baked perfectly crisp on the outside and chewy and soft of the inside. And you can grill, or bake this pizza!

We’re a huge fan of both methods, but it’s really fun and delicious grilled during the summertime! Find instructions below for grilled pizza!

    Best. Pizza. Topping. EVER! I was searching the internet for some different options for homemade pizza when I can across this one. Wow – it is so delicious and tastes so rich , even without the bacon (didn’t have any on hand). I appreciate that the white sauce is actually a “recipe” instead of just a brand-name spice packet which would not be available where I currently live. Make sure to use the whole amount of the sauce. It may seem like a lot when you spread on the dough but it bakes down beautifully into a wonderful sauce.

    Note: I did add some Parmesan for some extra flavor and salt, since I didn’t add the bacon. I also chose to put the tomatoes on the very top (which I salted and peppered) over the cheese.

    Yum! Thank you so much for sharing!
