Last weekend we had the best time making homemade pizzas with my extended family. We experimented with lots of different flavors and combinations and were in LOVE with these two gourmet pizzas. The first pizza we used our favorite quick pizza crust recipe and topped it with grilled chicken, ranch dressing, fresh tomatoes, green onions, crumbled blue cheese, lots of mozzarella cheese and Buffalo sauce. It was amazing!!

1 recipe pizza dough (or you can use those flat pita breads from Costco for a super simple method)
Follow this link to find out how to grill the pizza dough. If you don't want grilled pizza, just cook on a baking stone and they will still be fabulous!
Grilled and chopped chicken (seasoned with salt and pepper), about 3-4 chicken breasts
3 tomatoes, sliced
4 stalks green onions, sliced
2-3 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c. crumbled blue cheese
Franks' hot sauce
Ranch or blue cheese dressing (I like ranch best)
In a bowl, combine a cup or two of ranch dressing. Add the crumbled blue cheese to the dressing and mix. Once the pizza dough has been grilled slightly on one side, flip and then add the blue cheese/ranch sauce on the pizza. Add the chopped chicken all over the pizza and then cover with some mozzarella cheese. On the top of the cheese add the sliced tomatoes and the green onions. Crumble an extra amount of blue cheese on top (optional) and drizzle the top of the pizza with Frank's hot sauce (to your liking--I like a lot :). Continue cooking the pizza until the cheese melts and gets golden brown. If you are in a hurry, I have been known at times to pop my pizza in the broiler for a minute to get the top a little more crispy. Serve pizza hot off the grill for best results.
