Garlic Ranch Chicken Pizza

I have been making pizza weekly now for the past couple of months.  I normally buy two packages of dough from the store and make one new pizza recipe and one plain cheese pizza for the kids.  My husband and I share the specialty pizza.  He usually eats his half of the pizza in one sitting.  I like to eat one piece for dinner and save my other half for lunch the next day.  I made sure that to remind him not to take my pizza to work for his lunch the next day after what happened with our last pizza.  When I made the Peach Gorgonzola Chicken pizza (which was delicious!) he ended up taking my leftover piece to work and eating it for lunch!  And I was so looking forward to eating it myself!  I told him that he just wanted me to make it again!  Well, this Garlic Ranch Chicken pizza is just as tasty! I was so confident that my daughter would enjoy this pizza that I ended up making two of them, instead of one plain pizza!  And she did like it!  This was an opportunity for the kids to try bacon bits for the first time.  As my husband pointed out, it's just flavored soy bits really.  There's actually no bacon in bacon bits.  Of course, they're salty and crunchy so they were a hit with the kids!  We all enjoyed this pizza and it's another one that I wouldn't mind making again!
