Hi everyone! I’m Lauren, a guest from the food blog Tastes Better From Scratch, and I’m so excited to be sharing one of my favorite pizza recipes with you all!

I’ve got to be honest, the Mister and I make homemade pizzas together almost every weekend…we love them that much! It’s always tricky choosing what type of pizza to make since we have soo many favorites! I love a traditional margherita pizza with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil,  and he loves Barbecue Chicken Pizza. But we’re always, always, able to agree on this Garlic-Ranch Chicken Pizza! It’s the YUMMIEST pizza, and definitely one of our all-time favorites!

The key to the perfect homemade pizza, is having the perfect pizza crust. It’s taken me a really long time to master the perfect homemade pizza crust. I’ve tried so many recipes that are bland, “bready” and dense, or they’re flimsy and we end up eating the pizza with a fork. I’ve tried dozens of recipes and finally, I got it right! This crust is chewy, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside–just like a pizza crust should be!  Top your crust with the fixin’s for this delicious Garlic-Ranch Chicken pizza and you’ve got the perfect summer dinner your whole family will love! And if you’d rather leave your oven off during the summer months, you should definitely try this pizza grilled!  Find instructions below for grilled pizza!

I hope you love this pizza as much as we do, and stop by Tastes Better From Scratch,  for more yummy meal ideas, like these:

An easy homemade pizza crust smothered in garlic ranch sauce and topped with grilled chicken, bacon, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.



  • Dough for 1 large pizza
  • 2 cups Mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup chicken cooked and shredded
  • 2 tomatoes thinly sliced
  • For the Garlic-Ranch Sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon chopped dried chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon dill
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried parsley
  • dash of onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix all ingredients together for the garlic-ranch sauce. Spread mixture over the top of the pizza dough. Sprinkle 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese over top, followed by the chicken, bacon, and tomatoes. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake at 450°F for 10-12 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.
  2. *For grilled pizzas: Oil your grill and turn heat to medium-low. Shape dough into long, slipper-shaped pieces. Brush dough with olive oil and grill for 2 minutes on one side, with the grill cover on. Flip to the other side and brush again with olive oil. Cook for 2 minutes, with the grill lid on. Remove crust to a plate and add toppings. Return to grill and cook just until cheese is melted, 1-2 more minutes.

  1. Looks delicious! The hubby and I love all kinds of pizza too :)

  2. This is exactly my kind of pizza, love it!!

  3. Mmm Lauren, I love garlic ranch chicken pizza but haven’t ever made one myself. I want this for lunch right now!

  4. This looks amazing! Pinned

  5. how many would this serve? Two?

  6. This looks so amazing. I definitely want to try it. We usually do pepperoni or canadian bacon and pineapple when we make our own, so I definitely need to branch out.

  7. This looks incredible. I want to try it grilled for sure!

  8. I’ve never tried a grilled pizza but sounds amazing! I love garlic, ranch, chicken, and pizza but never would have thought to put it all together! Trying this for sure!

  9. Oh my goodness! This looks SOOO good!! Cannot wait to try – thanks!!

  10. This looks amazing! I’m always looking for new pizza recipes and this is a must try! Thanks for sharing!

  11. This looks so good! I’m on a homemade pizza kick lately and I definitely am going to try this one!!

  12. This looks great. I will have to make it. I love anything homemade and not out of a box. Pinned. Stopped by from Made By You Monday.

  13. Made this tonight. Turned out great!!! Delicious

  14. Wow! That’s the only word that comes to mind. Made this tonight and it was AMAZING!! 

  15. This is absolutely delicious!!!  My family loved it.  I can’t wait to make it again!!

  16. This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it- just one question: do you use dried dill or fresh? Thank-you!


  17. This looks delish, but I’m too lazy to make it myself… I’ll just go to The Brick Oven… ;-)

  18. I am allergic to cooked tomatoes, so usually anything Italian (spaghetti, pizza, etc), has to be forgotten.  I love alternatives like this, so great!

  19. I am very pleased at how simple this was to make! I didn’t have chives or dill on hand for the sauce, I substituted with basil and it was delicious! I also added sliced onions and mushrooms for extra toppings. It was nice not needing a dipping sauce as well!

  20. Followed the recipe as written except I used 1/8 teaspoon of garlic salt.  I always start with a small amount of salt (you can always add more).  Based on my taste, the sauce was perfect with less salt.   My husband liked the pizza more than I did and asked that I make it again.
