Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I love pizza. You love pizza. Let's make some pizza!

I am pretty confident in the pizzas I've made myself so I thought I'd share the recipe for the pizza I had this evening. I have yet to find a pizza crust that beats this one. I'd like to find a great whole wheat recipe, but for now, regular flour it is! Now, if you want to prepare this pizza like Peter and I do, you'll also have to start the chicken the night before. Everything is explained...

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Pizza Crust Recipe

Ingredients (Yields One 14-16in Pizza Crust)
  • 1 pkg Yeast
  • 1 Cup Warm Water
  • 2.5 Cups Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add package of yeast. Stir in warm water until yeast dissolves.
  2. Add flour, olive oil, sugar, and salt, beat until ingredients fully mixed. (I like to use my hands for this step)
  3. Let dough rise for 1-2 hours. (You could probably lessen the time frame, but I wouldn't recommend it).
  4. Add flour to hands and pizza pan surface (pizza stones are great!). Press or roll out dough to desired size and thickness. *Keep in mind the dough rises nicely!*
Pizza Recipe

Ingredients (Serves 6-8)
  • 1/2 lb Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1/2 Cup Frank's RedHot Buffalo Sauce
  • 1-14 oz Jar of Classico Fire Roasted Pizza Sauce or any preferred pizza sauce (we were lazy to make our own but this stuff is delicious!)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 Small Onion, Chopped
  • 1/4 Red Bell Pepper, Chopped
****If you chose to marinate chicken overnight (recommended!), cut chicken into cubes, adding to large Ziplock bag. Add buffalo sauce to bag. (We also added seasoned salt and garlic powder to our liking).****
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a sauce pan, add chicken, buffalo sauce, and seasonings of choice to sauce pan. Cook on medium high until chicken fully cooked through. Drain excess sauce (unless you want extra on your pizza!)
  3. With pizza crust already prepared, spoon on pizza sauce (you may only find yourself using half the jar).
  4. Sprinkle on cheese, onions, peppers, and chicken.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
