How to Make Buffalo Chicken Pizza

CRUST. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees with a pizza stone or overturned cookie sheet inside. Stretch the pizza dough into a 12 inch circle on a sheet of parchment paper dusted with cornmeal. (Alternatively, you can forgo the pizza stone and bake the pizza on a pizza pan instead.)

TOPPINGS. In a small bowl, toss the chicken with the buffalo sauce. Spread the blue cheese dressing over the pizza, then top with the shredded chicken. Sprinkle the blue cheese crumbles over the top.

BAKE. Bake 9-11 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve hot.

Recipe Tips

  • Having pre-measured shredded chicken in the freezer to easily grab for recipes like this is a time saver. You can also grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to shred.
  • Adjust the Spice: look for buffalo sauce that will match your desired amount of heat. For added spiciness put hot sauce or red chili flakes on your slice.

Storing tips + side ideas

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can also freeze them for 1-2 months. For best results reheat in the toaster oven or oven. If you’re in a hurry you can also use the microwave.

Make ahead of time: To make this into a delicious freezer meal to be baked later all you need to do is:

  1. Bake the pain pizza crust for 7 minutes. 
  2. Remove from the oven and put on the toppings. 
  3. Place the pizza on a freezer safe aluminum baking tray or a clean piece of cardboard and flash freeze for about 2 hours.
  4. Once completely frozen wrap it tightly with plastic wrap then again with aluminum foil. Label and freeze for 3-6 months. 
  5. Thaw on the counter for about 30 minutes before baking in the oven.
