Chipotles and Ranch...a great combo

For the Daring Baker'schallenge this month we were challenged to make pizza dough the way classic pizzerias do.  We had to toss the dough in the air and all that fun stuff.  It was quite an experience and I had a blast completing this challenge.  This dough is incredible as well, it takes a little more time since it is a two day process but it is so worth it.  For any of you that love pizza and love making pizzas at home the dough is a must try.  

For my pizza I decided to make a chipotle ranch pizza.  It turned out awesome.  All the flavors came out perfectly and blended together so well.  There are many more pizzas I want to try and I have plenty of dough waiting on me; so I can't wait to share them with you.  This recipe is a ranch lovers dream; this will quench the heaviest craving for something ranch!  I loved coming up with this pizza and we enjoyed every slice. 

Chipotle Ranch Pizza


Recipe for Basic Pizza Dough 

2 Chicken breast, boiled

2 Tablespoons Tupperware Ranch Chipotle seasoning

Salt and pepper, to taste

1/2 Small onion-sliced and sauteed

1 Block cream cheese-room temperature

4-5 Tablespoons Ranch dressing mix

1/4 Cup homemade ranch dressing (follow directions on dressing mix)

1/4 Teaspoon dill

3/4 Cups shredded parmesan cheese



Preheat baking stone on highest setting for 45 minutes before cooking pizza.

Once chicken has cooled, shred and then add salt, pepper, chipotle ranch seasoning, and dill; mix together well.  

In bowl take room temperature cream cheese and mix in dry ranch dressing mix.

In small skillet preheat a little olive oil and sautee onions.  Remove from heat once the onions start to turn clear and get nice and carmelized.

Remove stone from oven and place dough on stone and form edges.  Spread cream cheese on dough, sprinkle with chicken, add onions, drizzle ranch dressing on top, and then add cheese. 


Place back in ove for 5-8 minutes; until crust reaches nice golden brown.
