Ingredients you’ll need

  • Crusty French Bread: You can also use sourdough bread or make my homemade french bread recipe.
  • Ranch Dressing: I used Hidden Valley® Simply Ranch Classic Ranch dressing.
  • Pizza Sauce: You mix pizza sauce with the ranch for a yummy sauce. Use my homemade pizza sauce or store bought.
  • Cheese: Shredded cheese cheddar or mozzarella or a mix – your choice. TIP: shred it yourself for best melting results.
  • Bacon: Cook it and then crumble it.
  • Sliced green onions: For garnish

How to make Pizza with Ranch

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a cookie sheet with foil and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Slice the loaf of french bread lengthwise through the center, so you have two long pieces. Place them cut side up on the cookie sheet.
  3. Combine the ranch dressing and pizza sauce in a small bowl. Top the french bread with the sauce, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top and then add the bacon and onions.
  4. Bake the French bread pizza with ranch for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Slice the ranch pizza into pieces and serve them hot.

Variations 

If bacon and ranch on pizza wasn’t enough for you, then you should try some of these add-ons to it. You’ll love how easy it is to switch up this simple ranch pizza recipe!

Protein: Feel free to add chicken, pepperoni, salami, or even cooked ground sausage if you want to add more flavor.

Cheese: I love cheddar cheese on this pizza, but shredded mozzarella or provolone would work great, too. Or, do a mix of different kinds of cheese.

Garnishes: Serve the hot bacon ranch pizza with more sliced green onions on top or sprinkle some chopped parsley or grated Parmesan cheese over the top. 

This bacon ranch pizza is a crunchy, gooey cheesy pizza with the tang of ranch in every bite! It’s so easy to make you’ll want it in your dinner rotation – enjoy!

FAQs

How to make french bread pizza not soggy

The best tip for making non-soggy French bread ranch pizza is to take it easy on the sauce. Don’t layer on too much otherwise, it will soak through the bread. My recipe has the perfect amount, so it turns out perfectly!

How to store leftover french bread pizza

French bread pizza is best when it’s made, but leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for up to two days.

What’s the best way to reheat french bread pizza?

I like to toast my french bread pizza in the oven at 400F. You can also microwave your pizza on high for up to one minute.

  1. I made this last night and it was so very nice and easy. Being in Australia, the quantities and ingredients are a little different but I used a whole bbq chicken (chopped) 250g of cream cheese, 1 can of soup ( 420g) a lot of vegies, including sun dried tomatoes, a red chilli and cooked onions and a couple of teaspoons of italian seasoning and put it into individual dishes and covered with puff pastry. Baked 170° f.f for about 30 minutes. It turned out perfect and enough fo 4 big serves.

  2. This was surprisingly easy and very tasty! Two loaves, split into 4 pieces, fed our family of 6. We made two bacon, one pepperoni, and one ‘meatless’ (veggie crumbles) following the recipe as posted. Will definitely make again. All four kids went back for seconds and thirds. That never happens!! Thanks for the recipe.

  3. We have made this recipe repeatedly at our house since you posted it. Thanks for a fun recipe for our dinner rotation.

  4. When you described Jordan’s reaction to dinner voices, it sounded like you were describing my daughter! I’m sure she would eat this, though. Looks soooo good!

  5. This is absolutely gorgeous! Your lighting in these photos is seriously so beautiful and then there is that cheese….my love language!
