Simple Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe
My family is a big fan of pizza and buffalo wings, though wings and kids can be messy! So I came up with this simple yet delicious recipe to satisfy both. Give this recipe a try and soon it will become a family favorite.
This Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe Uses:
- Chicken marinated in a buffalo sauce
- Blue cheese dressing instead of a red sauce
- Two different types of cheeses
- Your favorite toppings
Here is how we make ours, but you can add or omit any of the toppings to suit your tastes. If you prefer, you can make your favorite pizza crust recipe instead of using the recommended refrigerated crust.
- 1 can (13.8 oz.) Refrigerated pizza crust
- 1 can (12.5 oz.) Canned chicken, drained
- 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
- 2 Tablespoons of butter, melted
- 1/2 cup Blue Cheese dressing
- 1 cup Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup Mozzarella cheese
- 1 small red onion sliced
- 1 cup real bacon bits
- 1 cup banana peppers
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
Preheat oven to 450 ° F (220 ° C). Spray an 11×15 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl combine the chicken, hot sauce and melted butter. Set aside and let marinate. Pat pizza dough into prepared pan. Pierce the dough with a fork. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread blue cheese dressing over pre-baked crust. Sprinkle on cheeses. Place marinated chicken over cheeses. Top with red onion, real bacon bits and banana peppers. Sprinkle on a little garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Continue to bake for an additional 8 – 12 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
