20 oz.-24 oz. pizza dough ball
2 garlic cloves, crushed or pressed
1 tbsp. olive oil

10 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 oz. applewood smoked bacon
4 oz. shredded chicken—rotisserie,tenders or wings
2 oz. ranch dressing
2 oz. Buffalo sauce for drizzling ordipping (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 550°F. Prepare toppings and set aside. Sauté bacon until browned and remove from pan before it turns crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels, then cut into 1” slices. Shred chicken meat. (For buffalo-style, toss chicken with your favorite buffalo sauce.)

Toss, stretch, roll or press pizza dough into desired size. Spread with olive oil and crushed/pressed garlic, then add mozzarella. Top with shredded chicken and bacon. Bake in oven until mozzarella begins to bubble and bubbles show a hint of brown. Remove from oven and drizzle with ranch dressing. (For a buffalo-style Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza, serve with more buffalo sauce for drizzling or dipping.)
