Ingredients
  

  • Whole Wheat Pizza Dough or a purchased crust
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing original or spicy
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked turkey or chicken meat chopped
  • 1/4 medium red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 large green bell pepper seeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • fresh cracked pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425F with the pizza stone (if using)¬†on the middle rack. Once the oven is ready, continue to heat the stone in the oven an additional 10 minutes to make sure the stone is fully heated.
  • Remove the pizza stone from the oven. Put the pizza dough or prepared crust on the stone.
  • Layer, in order, the ranch dressing, turkey or chicken, veggies, and cheese. Drizzle Buffalo sauce over top. Finish by grinding fresh cracked pepper over top.
  • Put the stone with the pizza back in the oven and cook 10-20 minutes, depending on the crust you are using and its thickness, until cheese is melty and crust is toasty.
  • Remove from the oven and serve. Yields: 8 slices.

Notes

If you want to spice up this pizza more, you can use spicy ranch or just add a bit of Sriracha to regular ranch. I have used regular ranch and spicy with good results every time.
I have used both whole milk and part-skim mozzarella for this pizza, and the whole milk melts much better.
