  • 13/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water (120° to 130°F)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • 2 cups cubed or shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2  cup Ranch dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups grated low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • Optional garnish – sliced green onions and extra hot sauce


  1. Crust: In a large bowl combine 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar, salt, water, and oil. Stir until smooth, adding more flour if necessary. Dough should be slightly sticky, but form a ball.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 3-4 minutes until smooth and elastic. Alternately you can mix the dough ingredients in your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.
  3. Cover the bowl and allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes. Prepare toppings, while the dough is resting.
  4. Toppings: In a large bowl combine the chicken, melted butter, and hot sauce until coated. Set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  6. Assemble: When the dough is ready, spread it out 12-15 inches, depending on desired thickness onto a lightly greased pizza pan. *see note
  7. Spread the ranch dressing evenly on top of the dough.
  8. Top evenly with prepared chicken, and sprinkle chicken with grated cheese.
  9. Bake: Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  10. Remove from oven and garnish with green onions and and drizzle with extra hot sauce or ranch  if desired.
  11. Allow the pizza to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm.


*if using a pizza stone, preheat the stone as you preheat your oven. Prep the pizza as the recipes states, except press the dough out into a circle on a surface coated in corn meal. Use a pizza peel lightly coated in cornmeal to transfer the prepped pizza right on to the hot pizza stone and bake!

To reheat, preheat oven to 400°F. Place pizza on pizza stone or baking sheet and heat for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
