Chicken Bacon Ranch Flatbread is one of those dishes that will please even the pickiest eaters. Who doesn’t love pizza AND they get to customize it. Even better, it’s so quick and easy, it’s a PERFECT weeknight meal!
I honestly can’t think of anyone I know that doesn’t like pizza. Can you??? Pizza is comfort food for me and just a phone call away. LOL
Yes, everyone has different tastes so it can be hard to agree on the type of pizza and toppings. Soooo…..you settle for a one-topping pizza with extra cheese. Or just a plain cheese pizza.
Well, what if I told you that was not the case anymore and your family will not want pizza delivery again.
These Chicken Bacon Ranch Flatbreads are the BEST! Let each member of your family add their own toppings and create their own new favorite pizza.
And the flatbread is a fantastic alternative to having to make homemade crust, don’t you think? I don’t always like dealing with yeast, so having a super simple shortcut like this one is PERFECT!
Just set out all your family’s favorite toppings and let them go to town. Surprise them with toppings they hadn’t thought about before like steak strips, shrimp, pineapple, Canadian bacon, spinach, feta cheese…I just know your mind is now racing with all the possibilities. 😁
Now, what are you waiting for! PS….don’t forget to delete the pizza delivery number from your phone.
