If your a BBQ lover then your going to love this pizza. Loaded with BBQ chicken, onions, and ranch this pizza is sure to satisfy the BBQ lover in you. I could have added bacon and called it a BBQ Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza but I’m still not quite on board with the whole bacon thing, so I decided not to add it. If your a bacon lover, then by all means, go ahead and add some bacon! I’m sure it’s going to taste great as well. That’s what I love about pizza, you can omit or add just about anything you want to suit your taste!
I added onions to the chicken because I love it how the onions and chicken caramelize with the barbeque sauce; but then again, the onions are optional. For the base I used a mixture of ranch and barbeque sauce instead of marinara and topped that with the chicken and onions.
