Bacon Chicken Ranch Pizza

This is definitely not one of those low calorie dinners, but well worth saving your daily calories for.  It is amazingly delicious!! A HUGE hit with the family!!
Bacon Chicken Ranch Pizza
1 recipe pizza dough
2 cups cooked chicken breast, diced
8 slices cooked bacon, broken into pieces
1/4 cup onions, diced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Pizza Sauce
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 Tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Roll out pizza dough into a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
 Meanwhile prepare sauce:
Melt butter in a sauce pan. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Cook until volume is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese.
*Optional: Add 1 tablespoon minced garlic to the butter and saute for a minute.
Spread sauce over the pizza. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese over the sauce then add chicken, bacon and onions. 
Drizzle the ranch on top.  Sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese and bake for 15- 20 minutes or until crust appears done.
Enjoy!!

*Winco has a great pizza dough. It is cheap and tastes great!!

Delicious!
