Buffalo Chicken Pizza

We’re big-time pizza eaters at my house.

Who isn’t, right?

If you’re the kind of person who is indifferent to pizza, please don’t tell me, okay?  Because I could eat it eight different ways ’til Sunday and still not get tired of it.

But I live with a 5-year old whose idea of pizza is pepperoni, sausage and black olives (huh??) and nothing else, so I don’t get an opportunity for much variation.

The other evening, though, I was ready for something different.

And then I remembered these potato skins, which were pretty much the bomb.

So I kinda-sorta put it on my pizza.

Well, minus the potato, because the Tall Boy wouldn’t go for that.

And minus the blue-cheese dressing, because neither the Tall Boy nor Doodle would go for that.

I live with a boring crew, ya’ll.

Not boring?  This pizza, which pretty much rocked my socks off.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
 
For a super-speedy weeknight meal, use a prebaked pizza crust and shredded chicken from your deli.
Ingredients
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon buffalo rub (I used one from Pampered Chef; or just use steak seasoning, like McCormick)
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons Frank's Red Hot, buffalo-style
  • ⅓ cup Ranch dressing
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese
  • green onion, thinly sliced
  • one pizza crust (grab one from the refridgerator section if you're short on time)
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Grill chicken with rub or seasoning over medium heat for 4 to 7 minutes, or until temperature reaches 170 degrees. Allow to cool slightly and cut into strips.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine tomato sauce, butter and Frank's Red Hot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for approximately 15 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly. Add chicken and heat through.
  4. Spread Ranch dressing over pizza crust and top with chicken mixture, cheese and onions.j
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

    Wow, that pizza looks amazing! I’m wondering how it would be to make it on the grill. It’s so hot to turn the oven on right now.

    L. O. V. E. Buffalo chicken ANYTHING, but buffalo chicken pizza is my boyfriend’s favorite pizza of all time, and one of mine! Love the spiciness and the textures–I’m kinda sorta obsessed with throwing a bunch of green onions + cilantro on top of mine. This look awesome, Ashley! And have no fear about the picky eater thing–I have a house full of them and the idea of a buffalo chicken pizza would probably make them squeamish. I’m surprised Doodle likes black olives! What a rock star!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
