Buffalo chicken pizza is one food we agree on in our house.

And as you can imagine, Mr. How Sweet loves it since it has chicken – his sweet elixir of life.

 

 

When it comes to pizzas, I rarely make the same thing twice. I throw whatever I have on them… except veggies obviously. I mean, I want to enjoy my pizza. Not eat rabbit food on it.

What you can always find on my pizzas is loads of cheese. I bet you’re shocked at that one.

 

 

I start with my favorite part – adding a ranch + blue cheese + buffalo wing sauce as a “sauce” for the pizza. This adds a ton of flavor and I don’t have to use my nemesis – tomato sauce.

 

 

Next goes on some cheese, and then the chicken.

If there is cheese that has somehow not made it into my mouth, more goes on top.

 

 

Next comes a big drizzle of buffalo wing sauce, to spice things up. And then I add gorgonzola on top. I don’t tell Mr. How Sweet. He eats it anyway.

I’m sneaky like that.

 

 

Easy Buffalo Chicken Pizza

dough:

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon dry active yeast

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup lukewarm water

Mix flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add water, oil and honey, and stir to form a ball. Finish bringing together with hands and knead for a minute or too. Place in lightly oiled bowl and cover, letting rise for 2-3 hours.

Remove from bowl and punch down. Place back in the bowl and let rise for another 30 minutes.

Dough should be ready for use.

 

 

pizza:

1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce

1/4 cup blue cheese dressing

1/4 cup ranch dressing

10 ounces chicken, shredded

1 cup shredded, smoked cheddar cheese

1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola

buffalo wing sauce for drizzling

Preheat over to 375.

Roll out pizza dough so it fits a pan – I use with a square baking sheet or 10-inch round pan. In a bowl, mix buffalo wing sauce, blue cheese and ranch. Spread over dough as a sauce. Top with 1/2 cup each of cheddar and jack cheeses. Add chicken on top, then remaining cheeses including parmesan. Drizzle liberally with buffalo wing sauce. Add crumbled gorgonzola on top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

 

 

 

 

The final step is to devour it. Or in my case, battle my husband for the final piece.

    Okay does anyone else here despise bleu cheese? Because I do – and I’m wondering if I should just double up on the ranch or if someone has another suggestion? Either way, I’m attempting this pizza, just not with a single ounce of bleu cheese within a 20 yard radius of my house.

    You can use gorgonzola cheese as a substitute for blue cheese!

    Attack of the homophones!
    “kneed for a minute or too” should be “knead for a minute or two.” Sounds good, though!

    My boyfriend loves buffalo chicken pizza and I’ve been looking for a good recipe to make for him at home. I wanted to try this one immediately because of all the cheese! Made it last weekend and it was delicious–I’m not actually a huge buffalo chicken fan, but even I loved this one! Thanks for a great recipe!
