Stick the word pizza on your snack-food item, and Slice is sure to buy it. The latest pizza-but-not-pizza thing I saw at the supermarket was Doritos Collisions Pizza Cravers/Ranch flavor.

The Collisions line features two flavors in one bag. The four combinations are Hot Wings/Blue Cheese, Zesty Taco/Chipotle Ranch, HabaƱero/Guacamole, and Cheesy Enchilada/Sour Cream.

Flavorwise, they're marginally pizzalike. There's a hint of tomato, a barely discernible hint of pizza seasonings, and a cheese profile that's more Parmesan than mozzarella.

We've discussed the phenomenon of ranch dressing on pizza before, so I hardly think it's a coincidence that the Doritos folk put these two flavors on a crash course with each other. And there was only one logical thing to do:
