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!

3 large
boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
