2 Minute, 2-Ingredient Ranch Dressing Pizza Dough

Do you order your pizza with a side of ranch dressing? I have a hunch that most of us are regular ranch dippers or, at a minimum, have dunked a slice into a rich and creamy ramekin of this national treasure at some point in life. Funny thing is that if you Google “ranch dressing and pizza,” you are bombarded with heated banter between pizza purists and those who like to kick things up with this culturally iconic condiment. One restaurant right here in Texas actually “outlaws” the act and when word of this banishment hit the web, dippers, dunkers and even daintier drizzlers flipped out from coast to coast!

However, I say dip your pizza pie in ranch dressing if that’s your style. After all, this is America, a nation with the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – and this most popular salad dressing of all time really does make people happy. We also live in a land of creativity and convenience and these values were the impetus for a really tasty short cut made in my own home kitchen. Too busy to get to the store, I had to make one of those “necessity is the mother of invention” type dinners with the meager morsels on hand.  Are you sitting down? I am about to rock your weekday-rushed, pizza-eating world.

My invention was ranch dressing MIXED INTO a pizza crust for all-over herby-buttermilk goodness. You may be starting to drool at the sound of this, but shaking your head sadly knowing you’ll never rise to the occasion of making yeasty pizza dough that takes hours to knead, rest and rise. Well, I have even more insanely good news for your – there are only TWO INGREDIENTS and the dough recipe only takes TWO MINUTES to make and then about 12 more to bake with your favorite toppings. Still, you’re eating ranch-flavored pizza in less than 15 minutes and that is definitely faster than delivery!

And, if you want to bathe your finished pizza in even more ranch dressing, rest assured that this is an inalienable right!

This crazy-fast recipe for ranch-flavored pizza dough will have a delicious dinner on your table quicker than any delivery guy. 


  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 cup Litehouse® Homestyle Ranch Dressing


  1. Heat oven to 475 F degrees. Place pizza stone or unrimmed baking sheet in oven to pre-heat.
  2. In medium bowl, add self-rising flour and ranch dressing, stirring to combine. If mixture seems too sticky, add in more flour a tablespoon at a time.
  3. Add dough to liberally-floured portable work surface, such as large cutting board or unrimmed baking sheet. Shape into one large ball for a 12” pizza or two smaller balls for personal-sized pizzas. 
  4. Use a rolling pin to flatten dough to approximately 1/3” thickness, using fingers to mend any cracks or craggy spots on edges. Add toppings of choice onto uncooked pizza dough (like sauce, cheese, veggies, etc.).
  5. Open door of oven and use baking mitt to pull out hot baking sheet. Carefully slide prepped pizza onto hot baking sheet. 
  6. Bake in center rack of oven for 12 minutes or until edges golden brown and cheese bubbling on top.
  7. Slice into wedges and serve with more Homestyle Ranch Dressing, if desired.
