Buffalo Chicken Pizza

IMG_2182-450x337I love spicy stuff, so buffalo sauce is a must in my kitchen! This buffalo chicken pizza is delicious and great for a game day or just a weeknight dinner! 

 

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

For the sauce (My Alfredo Sauce), halved:

  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  •  1/4 cup cream cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the pizza:

  • 1 lb chicken, shredded
  • ⅓ cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella or cheddar)
  • ¼ cup bleu cheese crumbles
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 pkg. Pillsbury Pizza Dough
  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven as directed on the Pizza Dough Package.
  2. In a small pan over medium heat, place the chicken in water and cover. Bring to a boil. Flip the chicken once almost the entire breast turns white. This takes about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant; about 1 minute. Place the cream cheese in the saucepan and whisk until smooth. Add the milk, and whisk until smooth and combined. Stir in the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Continue to stir until sauce thickens. 
  4. After the chicken is cooked, take two forks and shred the chicken.
  5. Smother the chicken with buffalo sauce in a bowl or bag. I like to use a ziplock bag, pour the sauce in, and shake!
  6. Roll out the pizza dough onto a greased cookie sheet.
  7. With a basting brush or a spoon, spread olive oil on the dough, leaving 1 inch around the perimeter for the crust.
  8. Pour the sauce onto the dough and spread all over leaving about 1 inch perimeter for the crust.
  9. Add the chicken, green onions, bleu cheese crumbles and shredded cheese.
  10. Bake in oven according to the pizza dough package instructions.

Enjoy!
