Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

     The newest flavor blitz seems to be chicken, bacon and ranch dressing. I see the combination stuffed in potatoes and on sandwiches at restaurants. For dinner one night I decided to use those toppings on a thin crust pizza. Often I'm afraid that I over do the toppings on homemade pizza, but since I used the new thin crust by Pillsbury, this wasn't a problem. It can withstand ample toppings and is easy to make. The crust spreads out big, so it can handle toppings in quantity. 
     The flavor combination of chicken, bacon and ranch worked together well, but I've increased the amounts for this pizza recipe. The hubby's comment was, "More meat."

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza
1 Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough

1/4 cup onions, chopped (optional)

Roll dough onto a large baking sheet. Spread ranch dressing over crust. Sprinkle with chicken, bacon, garlic, peppers and onions if using. Top with shredded cheese.
