Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Buffalo chicken slices on a pizza pan with parsley in the back.

This spicy pizza is perfect for an upgraded pizza night or a game day get together! A smooth homemade Buffalo sauce, rotisserie chicken, and cheeses all baked until browned and bubbly.

Ingredients

Scale

2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken, recommend using only the white meat
1 pizza dough
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Asiago cheese
1/2 cup hot sauce, or use up to 3/4 cup for extra heat
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Blue cheese
Ranch dressing for garnish (about 1/4 cup)
Scallions for garnishing

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl combine the Mozzarella and Asiago cheeses. Prepare the pizza dough and stretch it into a circle and place it onto your pizza pan. Bake for 8 minutes.

2. While the pizza dough is baking, prepare the hot sauce. In a small pot over medium heat add the butter and melt. Whisk in the flour, then pour in the hot sauce. I used 1/2 cup for a mild heat, but increase this amount to 3/4 cup for additional sauce and heat. Simmer about 2 minutes to thicken. Add the Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and garlic powder. Lastly, add in the shredded chicken and stir to coat the chicken in the hot sauce. Remove from heat.

3. Spread the Buffalo chicken mixture onto the prebaked pizza dough, leaving enough edge for a crust. Top with all of the Mozzarella Asiago cheese blend. Drizzle ranch dressing (as much as you’d like) over top, then sprinkle with as much Blue cheese as you’d like. Bake for 10-12 minutes. I usually bake for 12 minutes for a nice browned crust and browned and bubbly Mozzarella.

Garnish with diced scallions. Allow to cool slightly before slicing. Enjoy!

Notes

Increase the amount of hot sauce to 3/4 cup if you want a spicier pizza!
