Prep

  1. Pizza dough - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating while finishing prep.) Cover in flour and let rest for at least 30 minutes outside of fridge before rolling out. (Resting dough gives gluten time to chill out, which makes the dough much more pliable.)

  2. Cook bacon - Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and sear until crisp on both sides. When bacon is done cooking, transfer it to a paper towel-lined plate. Allow to cool and then crumble into bite-sized pieces. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  3. Make ranch drizzle - Chop green onions (portion for ranch). Blend together green onions, yogurt, mayonnaise, water, vinegar, dill, garlic powder, salt, and sugar with an immersion blender or standing blender until smooth. Add some more water if needed until the sauce is easy to pour. (You can also just finely chop the green onions and whisk everything together.) (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  4. Cheese / Lettuce / Green onions (portion for pizza) / Tomatoes / Garlic - Prep as directed.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Brush a sheet pan with the first portion of olive oil. Using hands, stretch out pizza dough to cover sheet pan.

  3. Bake dough for 3 minutes without toppings (this solo time in the oven gives the dough time to crisp up before you add the toppings).

  4. Whisk together second portion of olive oil and garlic.

  5. Remove pizza dough from the oven and brush with olive oil-garlic mixture. Top with cheese. If bacon was made ahead and is cold, add it to the pizza now. (If it is still warm from cooking, wait to add it until after the pizza is done cooking.)

  6. Return pan to oven and continue baking pizza until cheese is bubbling and crust is golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes more.

  7. When pizza is done, slice into wedges. Top with fresh lettuce, bacon (if not cooked on the pizza), green onions, and tomatoes. Drizzle lightly with ranch. Serve any remaining ranch on the side for dipping. Enjoy!

Delicious. We used naan instead of pizza dough to make a super quick meal.

Didn't expect this to work but it did. I added some chorizo sausage to the pizza. I am usually not a fan of green salads but it was refreshing here.

I wasn’t so sure about this as the flatbread seemed really plain. But I loved having all the cool toppings on top. The Tempeh bacon was delicious in the air fryer and this will now be my go to bacon recipe. Pleased with the ranch, too. I would give this 6 stars if I could.

Made it deconstructed so kids could pick and choose. I loved the dressing and added much more water than recommended to make it pourable.

We used fresh pizza dough that had already been rolled out and store-bought ranch, so this meal was very easy to throw together.

Added grilled chicken to make it more filling. Also used dairy free ranch and parmesan cheese. Didn't.know.what.to.expect with lettuce on a.pizza but we all liked it. My husband called it the American gyro because we ended up eating the pieces folded with all the toppings inside.
