Buffalo Chicken Pizza is great to serve for parties, birthday celebrations, and game day events. Everyone seems to love the buffalo style recipes and this one is no exception. The pizza crust base makes the plate for a generous serving of buffalo style chicken and cheese!
Why I made this Buffalo Chicken Pizza recipe
When it comes to pizza, Grumpy gets a little bent out of shape if it is anything but the Chicago Deep Dish Pizza recipe I make. And, while that pizza is a very delicious recipe, I like to make other flavors once in a while too!
However, it was close to Grumpy’s birthday and he happened to come home from work one night stating he had tried a slice of Buffalo Chicken Pizza from a convenient store. He then told me I should try making it sometime! So, since it was almost birthday time, I decided to give it a shot.
How to make the best pizza recipe
Great pizza recipes always start with a great pizza dough recipe. I can’t tell you how many times in the past I would make a pizza, only to have the picky Grumpy old man tell me it wasn’t good enough. I basically got to the point where I refused to make homemade pizza because of it and went to store bought!
Next, you want good quality ingredients. For pizza, part-skim mozzarella is best. However, more cheese is not always better. If you use too much cheese, you will have run over.
Red Hot Sauce is a must for buffalo chicken pizza. At least in our book it is. We love it and Grumpy puts it on everything! It is what puts the style in buffalo style!
Putting together your Buffalo Chicken Pizza
This recipe is pretty darned easy. Basically because you start with pizza dough. Either make your own ahead of time, or buy some from the store. For the chicken, I usually buy a rotisserie chicken and remove all the meat. Then I have enough chicken for a couple of different recipes. This Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe being one of them!
We are huge fans of blue cheese with our buffalo chicken pizza. If your not, you can always go with Ranch for topping the crust and skip the blue cheese sprinkles after it’s baked.
