Ingredients

  • Pizza dough , 11.5 ounce ball
  • Chicken breast , about 6 to 8 ounces
  • Hot sauce (I used Franks)
  • Ranch dressing , about 1/2 cup
  • Shredded cheese (I used a mixture of mozzarella/cheddar), 3 to 4 ounces
  • Blue cheese crumbles , 1 tablespoons (optional)
  • Blue cheese dressing (optional for serving)

Instructions

  • Position your oven rack within 6 to 8 inches of the top of the oven, and preheat your pizza stone for about 1 hour, using the highest setting possible (I use 550 degrees)
  • In the meantime, take your dough out of the refrigerator and let it rest at room temperature on a well floured surface for 1 hour, being careful not to degas the dough ball when you transfer it out of the container and onto your counter top
  • While the oven is heating up, season the chicken on both sides with a bit of salt and pepper and cook over medium heat until cooked through.
  • After the chicken cools, dice and toss with enough hot sauce so the chicken is well coated but not overly saturated.
  • Open your dough ball, forming your rim, and stretch until it is 14 inches.
  • Place your pizza skin on a lightly floured pizza peel and top with ranch dressing (as you would normally do with pizza sauce)
  • Spread the chicken mixture on top of the ranch dressing and then top with blue cheese (optional) and shredded cheese
  • Bake the pizza for 4 to 6 minutes, until the bottom is lightly browned.
  • Serve with blue cheese dressing if desired.

Notes

*This recipe makes one 14-inch pizza; I usually double it to make enough for 4
*The prep time is mostly inactive time, and does not include the time to make your own pizza dough, should you choose to make your own
