Baseball season is winding down and football season is heating up and inbetween all of the excitement of sporting events, there’s plenty of room for tasty snacks to enjoy with friends. I often like to serve crispy baked chicken wings at home but my new favorite is a delicious homemade Ranch Pizza with BBQ Chicken and extra Homestyle Ranch dressing! Even if your friends or family are rooting for opposing teams, I guarantee that they will agree on their love of this pizza.
I like a good homemade pizza crust but when I’m in a hurry, I turn to those packaged crusts that you can pick up by the pizza sauce in your local grocery store. They make mealtime or snack time a breeze because you can dress them up with different ingredients for a totally custom pizza. And they bake up crispy every time. One of my favorite combinations has always been barbecue chicken and I can usually find pre-grilled chicken breasts at the deli counter at my grocery store.
When it comes to preparing the pizza you simply preheat the oven according to package instructions and layer on the barbecue sauce, cubed chicken breast meat, mozzarella cheese and thinly sliced red onion. Once the pizza is baked, you drizzle on the ranch dressing and top it off with freshly minced cilantro for a flavorful snack or meal.
Since I’m such a ranch-addict, I like to keep the family size Homestyle Ranch dressing in my refrigerator for all of my dressing, dipping, dunking and drizzling needs. With chicken wing season in full-effect, I definitely find myself using more!
Whether you’ve got a party planned this coming weekend for a big game or you need a quick family meal, give this Ranch Pizza with BBQ Chicken a try. You’ll make everyone an instant fan.
