Did you know in the United States we eat 251,770,000 pounds of pizza a YEAR? We LOVE pizza that much too… but we have been dreaming of hot summer days and cool nights so we came up with this fresh Chicken Chipotle Ranch Flatbread that will have you searching for seconds even after you have seconds! Super easy to make for a snack, a side dish or even the main event!
1 can refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup havarti cheese
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, pounded to ½ inch thickness + salt and pepper to taste
3 slices cooked maple bacon, chopped
1 avocado, diced
½ red pepper, diced
1/2 orange pepper, diced
1/8 cup onion, diced
1/8 cup packed cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
¼ cup ranch dressing
1 teaspoon chipotle seasoning
Preheat oven to 350º. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Cook in a pan or skillet on the stove over medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through. Dice chicken and set aside. Brush flatbread with olive oil. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Top with chicken, red peppers, and bacon. Place on a lightly greased sheet of foil and bake on the oven rack for 10-15 minutes until cheese is completely melted. While flatbread is baking, whisk together ranch dressing and chipotle seasoning. When flatbread is
finished baked, top with avocado, cilantro, and crushed red pepper flakes. Drizzle with chipotle ranch dressing and serve immediately. Storebought chipotle seasoning or a homemade version can be used. Enjoy!
