I fell in love with the chicken bacon ranch pizza at Papa Johns, but it was too expensive. So I put my own twist on it, and I like mine better. Taste and cost wise!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We loved Elizabeth's take on making this pizza at home. Not only is it yummy, it makes 2 hearty pizzas for a fraction of the cost of ordering out. The chicken really has a punch of flavor. It soaks up the flavor from the ranch seasoning, onions, and sun-dried tomatoes. Adding bacon is sort of equivalent to a cherry on top. So many layers of yummy goodness in this pizza!

Ingredients

3 large
boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
1/2 medium
onion; diced
2 slice
sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
1 pkg
mozzarella cheese; large (about 1 1/2 - 2 cups per pizza)
2 pkg
Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning
2 large
pizza crusts
2 box
Philadelphia cream cheese (room temp); 8 oz each
6 slice
bacon

2Add sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper and ONE packet of Ranch seasoning; stir together and set aside.
3Pre heat oven to 400*
4Cook bacon.
5While bacon is cooking, in a food processor add 2 boxes of cream cheese (room temp) and the other packet of ranch seasoning, and mix together on a med. speed for 2 mins. (should look like frosting)
