Easy Chicken Bacon Ranch Stromboli Recipe

We’re huge fans of pretty much any type of Italian food. Be it pasta with a red or creamy Alfredo sauce, grilled seafood, Italian seasoned lemon chicken, sweet Italian sausage pizza or a simple caprese salad, it’s one of my go-to cuisines when I’m in a pinch. My family’s love of Italian food is what gave wings to this rather unconventional chicken, bacon and ranch twist on an Italian stromboli. Well that, and a Costco rotisserie chicken.

How to Make the Best Chicken Bacon Ranch Stromboli Recipe

It would be a rare occasion if I stopped by our local Costco and didn’t leave with one of their big and beautiful rotisserie chickens. They are my absolute favorite prepared chickens and and incredible value, too. I turn them into so many quick meals for my busy family and they always satisfy. This chicken bacon ranch stromboli is a regular rotation in my kitchen and there’s never a piece left over.

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Chicken Bacon Ranch Stromboli: Refrigerated pizza dough, (i.e. Pillsbury Classic or similar) chopped rotisserie chicken, cooked and crumbled bacon, chive and onion cream cheese, garlic salt, bottled Ranch salad dressing such as Hidden Valley Ranch or similar, shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon, melted butter and grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Kitchen gadgets you’ll need: A large baking sheet, sharp knife and cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, a skillet to cook the bacon, cheese grater, small bowl to melt the butter and a pastry brush.
  • For this stromboli recipe you can use a refrigerated pizza dough, which bakes quickly and is designed to do so. Trust me, no one will know you took a shortcut.
  • I like using colby jack cheese in this recipe but it could certainly be adapted using what you have on hand.
  • You can add pickled jalapenos to the mix if you like spicy foods.
  • If you prefer, a half recipe of my homemade pizza dough, will work. Make certain that you roll it super thin so it’ll bake all the way through.
  • When using homemade dough, the baking time may also need to be adjusted.
  • Store leftover Chicken Bacon Ranch Stromboli chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave in single servings.

  1. 5 stars
    Super delicious! Makes a lot of portions. Was using up leftovers and what I had on hand, so used pepperoni (crisped a bit in microwave) instead of bacon and creamy Caesar for the dressing. Will definitely make again. The options are endless.

  2. Pro tip for those who are just learning to cook for the first time: when you have a gas oven and you put butter on something make sure the pan has 4 sides. My boyfriend and I maybe kinda started a butter fire because the butter dripped to the bottom of the oven. After slight panic the Stromboli wasn’t touched so we were still able to make it.

  3. I am making this right now and usually with a stromboli I just do the ingredients on half of the dough long eays and then fold the other half of the dough on top and crimp the dough together around the edges top with oregano and cut small slits in the top. I followed your recipe to the T which I usually dont and the bottom of my dough is crispy dark brown almost burned and the inside dough isn’t cooked. I spent a lot of effort making it but I think I fixed it and hopefully it will taste good.

    1. If the dough is burnt on the bottom that sounds like it’s over baked. If you press the pizza dough thin enough it will cook through. Start with quality products and watch the time and it will work every time.

  4. Are you rolling the dough inside itself like a pinwheel? Typically if so, the dough doesnt cook on the inside well.

    1. Yes, it does roll up like a pinwheel and I assure you it will bake. I’ve made these types of roll-ups for my family for years. Bake it long enough and it will cook through.
