Fried Chicken Jalapeno Ranch Pizza

Fried chicken and jalapeno ranch pizza

This fried chicken and jalapeno ranch pizza is a fried piece of heaven.  Layered with fried chicken, jalapenos and mozzarella cheese on top of arguably the best sauce in the world, Ranch. Pickled and fried, two of the best things around town, why not put em’ together.

At first glance it appeared to be too much of a good thing but the end results were a comforting home-style fried chicken plus the fried warmth of the sneaky jalapeno pepper. Also adding a much needed touch of freshness.  The melted mozza melds the ingredients together, but you can’t forget the classic Ranch flavor carrying the fried goodness to yes….I already said it….but ima say it again….heaven!
