Ingredients

  • 1 lb. homemade pizza dough
  • 2/3 cup BBQ sauce recommended: Sweet Baby Ray's
  • 16 oz. grated mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1 large ear of corn kernels cut off
  • 1/4 red onion sliced thin
  • 6 slices precooked bacon chopped into pieces
  • 1 breast of rotisserie chicken shredded

for the smokey ranch sauce:

  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing recommended: bolthouse farms yogurt ranch
  • 2.25 oz. mild green chiles about half a small can
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Place pizza stone (or upside down cookie sheet) inside oven to preheat. Arrange racks so pizza will cook in the bottom 2/3rds of the oven.
  • Lightly spray a piece of parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray. Form half of the pizza dough into a 12-inch circle on greased parchment paper. Spread on half of the BBQ sauce and cover with half of the mozzarella cheese (8 oz.), reserving 1/4 cup. Spread with half of the corn, half of the onion slices, half of the bacon and half of the chicken. Sprinkle with reserved 1/4 cup of cheese.
  • Repeat steps above to create second pizza.**
  • Slide pizza onto preheated stone using the parchment paper and cook 5-12 minutes, oven depending. Your pizza will be finished cooking when the cheese looks melty and the edges start to brown. Remove from oven.
  • While pizza is cooking, make the smokey ranch: in a food chopper or high powdered blender, add ranch dressing, green chiles and smoked paprika and blitz until completely smooth. 
  • Drizzle sauce evenly over each hot pizza and top with chopped cilantro. Cut and serve immediately.

Notes

**this recipe will make 2-12 inch pizzas or one large 18 inch pizza. Both work using my homemade pizza dough recipe :) Just remember to preheat your pizza stone or pizza pan or cookie sheet in the oven to create that crispy bottom crust.
