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