pizza night is one of our all-time favorite date nights for me & chris. we live pretty close to a couple of amazing pizza spots in minneapolis, & we also love making homemade pizza over the weekend. so much so, that we even sprang for our very own wood-fired pizza oven this summer!

the thing about doing pizza night at home, though, is that it can be kind of a hassle to prep all of the ingredients you need to make “build-your-own”-style pizzas. aside from making dough, you also have to shred cheese, prep proteins, slice up veggies & other toppings. something as simple as pizza night can end up being a much more involved project than you envisioned pretty quickly.

but not today!

when i say this easy buffalo chicken bacon ranch pizza is easy, i mean it’s EASY. majorly easy. the kind of easy that only requires 5 minutes(!) of active prep time.

to build your pizza, you’ll start by rolling out a 1-pound ball of fresh pizza dough into a 12-inch round. you can totally pick up premade pizza dough at the store. most grocery stores carry fresh pizza dough in their refrigerator section. my favorite comes from trader joe’s – the quality & price are both great. you can also call up your favorite local pizza shop to see if they sell their dough – many do!

top the dough with a generous sprinkling of your favorite pizza cheese, then layer on the bacon, grilled chicken, & cheddar cheese from Taylor Farms’ Cheddar Ranch with Grilled Chicken Chopped Salad Kit.

lastly, you’ll brush the outer crust with a little bit of olive oil, which helps it get perfectly golden brown as it bakes.

& that’s really all it takes! prep takes less than 5 minutes, & it’s all thanks to everything already being ready to go in the Cheddar Ranch with Grilled Chicken Chopped Salad Kit.

once you pull the pizza out of the oven, top it with a generous drizzling of your favorite buffalo sauce for extra buffalo flavor, then sprinkle on the ranch salad from the Chopped Salad Kit (simply toss all those gorgeous greens in the provided ranch dressing).

Description

the easiest buffalo chicken bacon ranch pizza, topped with a fresh & crunchy salad for a fun twist on pizza night! with only 5 ingredients, this buffalo chicken bacon ranch pizza is perfect for an easy weeknight pizza dinner & great for game day parties this fall!


Scale

Ingredients

  • all-purpose flour or semolina flour, for rolling out the dough
  • 1 pound fresh pizza dough (see Recipe Notes)
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella, or pizza cheese of choice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Taylor Farms Cheddar Ranch with Grilled Chicken Chopped Salad Kit
  • for serving: buffalo sauce, ground black pepper, freshly snipped chives

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place a pizza stone on the center rack to heat up as the oven preheats. Once the oven comes to temperature, let the stone sit in the oven for a good 15 minutes so it gets super smoking hot – this is important to get that perfectly crusty texture out of the pizza. If you do not have a pizza stone, you can also use a large baking sheet. Prep a pizza peel with a generous sprinkling of semolina flour or flour and set aside.
  2. Assemble the pizza: Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Use your hands to form the dough into a 12” round. Transfer the dough to the prepared pizza peel. Top with the mozzarella, and the chicken, bacon, and cheddar from the Chopped Salad Kit. Brush the olive oil around the outer crust of the pizza. Don’t skip this step! It adds some flavor & helps ensure the crust stays nice and golden through baking.
  3. Bake the pizza: Carefully transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone in the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly, then drizzle some buffalo sauce over top.
  4. Finish the pizza: In a medium bowl, toss together the salad greens and ranch dressing from the Chopped Salad Kit. Arrange the salad over the pizza, finishing with a good sprinkling of ground black pepper, freshly snipped chives, and some drizzles of buffalo sauce & ranch dressing as desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Fresh pizza dough is really easy to find in most grocery stores, in the refrigerator section. My favorite store-bought pizza dough comes from Trader Joe’s. They have plain (pictured in this post), whole wheat, and garlic herb varieties, and all of them are really great for a hand-tossed style crust. You can also call up your favorite local pizza shop to see if they sell their dough – many of them do!
