Chicken Ranch Pizza

Another Yummy one I can't wait to try!
{Recipe from} My Favorite Recipes...

Chicken Ranch Pizza
1 recipe for pizza crust (to follow)
2-3 chicken breasts
1/2-3/4 cup Ranch dressing
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped Roma tomatoes
1/4-1/3 cup green onions
1-2 cups cheddar cheese
6-8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (0ptional)
2-3 tsp. minced garlic (optional)
pineapple tidbits (optional)
--Cook and shred chicken. Divide crust in half and roll crust out on greased cookie sheets that have been sprinkled with cornmeal. (I rolled mine out first, then transferred them to the pan covered in corn generous with the cornmeal so the dough doesn't stick). Poke holes all over the crust with a fork. Bake at 425 degrees for 5-7 minutes. Spread dressing over the crust (I mixed the chicken with the dressing, and then spread that on the could also add the garlic at this time). Sprinkle mozzarella, then tomato, green onions, chicken (if you didn't mix the chicken with the dressing), and pineapple tidbits (or you can add the tidbits after it's all cooked). Top with cheddar cheese. Bake 15-20 more minutes, or until crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted.

Kara's Pizza Crust
2 tsp. SAF instant yeast (I used rapid rise for bread machines--any will do)
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 1/3 cups flour (approximately--I added more as I rolled it out)
--Mix yeast, sugar, and water and let sit 1-2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, using enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead a few times. Rollout on a large greased cookie sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Poke dough all over with a fork. Bake at 475 degrees for about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread with sauce. Add cheese and your favorite toppings and bake for 10-12 more minutes or till crust is golden and cheese is melted.
