1 large (16") premade pizza dough or use homemade dough recipe
1 Lb. cooked chicken, diced or shredded
16 oz. Colby Jack cheese, shredded and divided
1/2 to 3/4 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Pepper Sauce (depending how spicy you like it)
1 cup Ranch dressing
2 (8 oz. each) packages cream cheese
Preheat oven, according to temp. stated on your dough package. Place rolled out dough onto a greased pizza pan.
If using raw dough or homemade recipe: Pre-cook the raw pizza dough partially, prior to applying the toppings. This avoids the crust from getting under-cooked or soggy. I usually cook it at 400 degrees, for about 8-10 minutes. Then apply my toppings and cook for an additional 15 minutes, at 400 degrees F..
If using pre-made, already cooked pizza crust: Just apply your toppings and cook according to package directions.
To make sauce: In a pan, mix together hot sauce, and ranch dressing. Heat, uncovered, over medium to low heat. Once heated, add cream cheese, and 3/4 cup of the Colby Jack cheese. Heat and stir occasionally until cheeses are melted and smooth.
Spread sauce evenly over bottom of pizza crust. Top with cooked chicken. Sprinkle with remaining cheese
Cook according to the instructions on your package of pre-made crust or follow the instructions on your homemade dough recipe. Cheese should be melted and bubbly.
Tip: For quicker chicken, you can use the 22 oz. bag of Tyson's Grilled & Ready Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast. You just heat it for a few minutes on the stove, and you're ready to go!
