Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe on a pizza stone and cut into slices

This Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe is a made with a blue cheese dressing as the sauce, topped with pre-cooked chicken that is coated with Mozzarella Cheese, a combination of Red Hot Sauce and Butter, and finished off with some blue cheese crumbles. It brings the buffalo style flavors that everyone loves to your dinner table as a pizza!

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.

Chicken Wings: The natural partner to pizza recipes!

Pizza and Wings just naturally go together. Those those words are often said by many people when talking about eating pizza! Here are a few wing recipes you might like to pair with your Buffalo Chicken Pizza!

Other topping ideas

  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Diced or thinly sliced red pepper (or green pepper)
  • Chopped green chives
  • Add a little sweet to the pizza for that sweet heat touch with a little pineapple to the top! Don’t knock it till ya try it!
  • Skip the blue cheese dressing spread and use a thin layer of pizza sauce.

Things you may need to make a pizza recipe

I highly recommend the following products.

  1. While you can use a baking sheet or pizza pan, the best thing to bake a pizza on is a pizza stone.
  2. You can’t properly cut a pizza without a good pizza cutter!
