I've always been a little intimidated about making pizza -- mainly the thought of making pizza dough from scratch.  I mean, they make it look so fun and easy on TV, but I'm still not convinced about the dough part. One day I will try my hand at it, but until then, thankfully, there are these pre-packaged crusts that I found at Target. I usually get grossed out about the thought of pre-packaged pizza crusts, but these actually looked good. The best part is that they are ultra thin and crispy -- my fave! So, I decided to try them out for the first time, and I am so glad I did! These are amazingly good and crispy, and they are so much better than take-out. I wanted to do a chicken and ranch style pizza, but I realized it needed some pizzaz (in the form of veggies), so I decided to add some asparagus. Perfect -- I already had some sitting in my refrigerator! What resulted was this delicious, gourmet-looking pizza that reminded me of pizza from California Pizza Kitchen. I can't wait to make this again and try other toppings. Turns out, making pizza this way was fun and easy!

Chicken and Asparagus Ranch Thin Crust Pizza

Servings: 3

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 20 mins

Total time: 30 mins


  • 2 ultra thin and crispy pizza crusts (pre-packaged)
  • 2 chicken breasts, chopped into 1" pieces 
  • 2 cups asparagus, chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Ranch dressing
  • 1 oz cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 Tsp dried basil
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then sauté in olive oil until browned on the edges.
  3. Add butter into the pan and let melt, then add garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes, then add in cream cheese. Stir until chicken is completely coated. Add basil and stir well. Set aside.
  4. Take 1 pizza crust and evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, 1/2 of the cooked chicken, then 1 cup of asparagus. Drizzle ranch dressing on top -- once horizontally, then once vertically to evenly coat the pizza. Repeat the same steps with the other pizza crust. 
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until crisp along the edges.
  6. Enjoy!


  • If you want to be even more fancy, try grilling your chicken instead! I wanted to grill mine, but doing so in the dead of winter was just not an option for me. Haha!

With how easy and simple this was to make, I am inspired to make pizza a regular part of my household menu. Pizza is so versatile. Create any type of flavor combination and never get bored again. Plus, homemade is always healthier. Happy Eating!
