Gourmet Pizza with Chicken

Here is a gourmet chicken pizza that will stop you from having to buy gourmet boxed pizzas at the store. It is easy to put together and freeze on your own, so buying them already prepared and ready to go into the oven will be a thing of the past. This is the perfect piece of chicken pizza.

Remember that ingredient quality matters so avoid those pale, foam-like tomatoes and limp green onions and choose high quality produce, cheese, and other ingredients for your pizza. Then, enjoy a home cooked meal that is just as good as gourmet. Add a little crumbled bacon if you want, or add sautéed garlic and vegetables. This is a great departure from the average tomato based pizza.

The pizza crust is baked first, then topped with ranch dressing for a creamy and tangy result. Add your cooked chicken, 2 kinds of cheese, tomato and onion, and the pizza is ready to go back in the oven until the cheese is melted. This colorful pizza offers the same gourmet appeal you would expect to experience at a top quality pizzeria.

The difference though is of course you are making it yourself which means not only are you saving a few dollars but you also get the option to change the toppings if you prefer to use others, or switch the chicken for turkey, the green onion for red onion, or even add some leftover corn, artichoke or mushrooms for extra color and flavor. This is a pizza which is sure to appeal to everyone in the family because the ranch dressing gives it a special taste and the toppings are really good as well.

Photo Description:

Every pizza has its own appeal, whether it is the satisfying comfort food appeal of pepperoni pizza or your favorite deep-dish treat, the special classy taste of a gourmet pizza, or even the unusual flavor of a Hungarian pizza or Greek fusion pizza recipe. This one features sophisticated toppings like creamy, tangy ranch dressing, and then you also have chicken, cheese, and brightly colored vegetables. Garlic, onion and black pepper finish this off, adding the perfect flavor to a colorful and appetizing pizza. Drizzle some extra ranch dressing over the finished pizza if you want, like we have done in the photo, for added flavor.
