Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Are you ready for some football pizza? Everyone knows that I don’t like football BUT I do like food. And I’ll be making a few of this and that this Sunday for the Super Bowl best commercial day of the year. Apparently high up on the football food request list are: dips, subs, wings, and pizza! Now I realize why people wear yoga pants (I just can’t stand to say sweat pants ugh) while watching. I’m not sure I’ve ever turned down pizza and I don’t think they’ll turn down this buffalo chicken version. Everyone loves buffalo chicken.

A little googling will provide you with endless links for Buffalo Chicken EVERYTHING. Seriously go ahead and try. This is a perfect pizza to make when you have leftover chicken. I started with chicken legs that I had roasted the night before, I gave them a little shred and done. If you don’t have leftover chicken you can either roast some yourself or just pick up a rotisserie chicken. I used my homemade tomato sauce as the base for the buffalo sauce and for even more flavor I added buffalo sauce to the dough. Double whamy.


Don’t worry it’s not TOO hot, we cool things off with the addition of our homemade ranch dressing. It’s really a good thing.
