Pizza Day 6! Buffalo Chicken Pizza

by Sarah on March 5, 2011

I wasn’t kidding when I said Pizza WEEK, dudes. All seven days.

I’m not breaking any sonic barriers with this one but you can’t really have a “big game” without the wings.  Those football types like the wings.  I just had to do a take on a buffalo chicken pizza.

I have to admit, I don’t like buffalo wings.   I just don’t.  The deep fried part?  The margarine?  The hot sauce and blue cheese?  I like all the components, but I don’t seem to like them combined.    I know, it’s practically un-American.

Obviously this is a no-brainer.  I shredded some leftover grilled chicken and tossed it with the Frank’s wing sauce.  You could make wing sauce with Frank’s Hot Sauce and margarine, but I didn’t wanna.

Stretch or roll out the pizza dough, then ladle on the blue cheese dressing.  Top with the chicken, then scatter on some thin slices of celery and some celery leaves.  Top with a few chunks of mozzarella.  You could put a few chunks of blue cheese on too, I just didn’t have any.  Finish with some freshly ground pepper.

Cook on hot hot hot for a few minutes, until everything’s bubbly.

It’s really pretty good.  Way better than wings.
