Easy Buffalo Chicken Pizza – Step by Step.
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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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.

I don’t cook. Ever. But I always browse your site and fantasize about producing the deliciousness. And when I saw this I gave it a shot anyways since it looked so damn good, but not without giving my boyfriend a disclaimer.
We were completely blown away by how amazing it was! I followed this recipe to a T, and it tasted AWESOME. Thank you! I am currently writing down some others to try out. ;)
So glad you liked it!
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 just do 1 to 1 ranch and buffalo sauce.
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!
Thank you sooooooooo much! Ive been searching for a SIMPLE and i do mean simple buffalo chicken recipe every where! Every single one has those ewwie veggies on it and i just cant stand the little devils. Once again thanks!

Well, I now know what I’ve been missing my whole life. THIS PIZZA! Holy cow, it is soo good. And the smoked cheddar just puts it over the top. We’ve made it two weekends in row now. This weekend, we brushed the crust with olive oil to get it a bit crispier, put corn meal on the bottom, and cooked it at 500 for 9 minutes (heated the pizza stone for 30 mins prior). Bomb diggity!
Yummm! I made this one night about a month ago and my BF and I have had it like once a week since. Coming from someone who is slow to come out of their cheese shell, the Gorgonzola is the gold medal winner in this recipe. Don’t skip! It turns the pizza into a gourmet meal. We add onions and bacon crumbles to it, depending on what we have going bad soon in the fridge. I have also done half/half buffalo sauce to ranch and enjoyed it. This would be a meal/appetizer I would have while entertaining. Putting it on my grocery list for this weekend right now actually!
