Buffalo Chicken Pizza

This was way better than I thought it would be!

I do love buffalo wings. I actually love anything "buffalo" flavored. This pizza was a prefect addition to our friends night. Today our friend Alyssa came over with her two munchkins. We haven't seen them in forever! It was so nice to catch up. All of us enjoyed this yummy pizza. Even little Abie wanted some! (he's lactose intolerant so he could only have the crust). Poor little guy.

Well if you like buffalo flavors I would strongly suggest making this! It was amazing!

Oh yeah... the recipe for the pizza dough is the BEST you will find ANYWHERE! I promise you :)

I baked my pizza on a pizza stone. You can find these for about 20 dollars or more.

I slightly adapted the pizza recipe from Rachael Ray.

The pizza dough recipe comes from Bobby Flay and is amazing and does not need any alterations!

This makes about 2 small pizzas.

Dough Ingredients

3 1/2 to 4 c. bread flour
1 tsp. sugar
1 envelope instant dry yeast
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp. hot water (110 degrees F)
2 Tbsp. olive oil, plus 2 tsps.

Dough Directions

  • Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add the water and the 2 Tbsp. of oil. Combine until it forms a ball. Knead for just a few minutes.
  • Oil mixing bowl with the 2 tsps. of oil and cover with plastic wrap and a damp kitchen towel. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  • When ready split dough into 4 pieces. Let rest 10 minutes
  • Roll each piece out into the desired thickness.
  • This yields about 4 small-medium pizza doughs. (I like to wrap mine in plastic wrap and freeze for later use)

Pizza Ingredients

1 chicken breast, grilled, diced
2 tsp. grill seasoning (I used Mrs. Dash's chicken grill seasoning)
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 Tbsp. worcestershire
2 to 3 Tbsp. hot sauce (I used Frank's)
1/2 c. tomato sauce
1 c. monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 c. blue cheese crumbles
3 green onions, thinly diced
Corn meal for pizza dough

Pizza Directions

  • Season chicken breast with grill seasoning. Grill on medium-high heat. About 7 minutes total. Let chicken rest for 10 minutes then dice into small bite size pieces.
  • In a small skillet over medium heat melt butter. Add in worcestershire, hot sauce, and tomato sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add half of the sauce mixture to the chicken.
  • Lay a thin layer of corn meal on a plate. (or a pizza paddle). Spread out pizza dough to size.
  • Layer the remaining half of the sauce mixture on the pizza dough. Add the monterey jack, blue cheese, and green onions. Bake at 450 degrees for about 8-9 minutes.
      • The cooking time will vary depending on if you used a pizza stone or not. If you use a regular baking sheet just cook it until the cheese is bubbly. About 15-20 minutes.
