Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Some of you may know JP as our resident pizza maker, but ever since he introduced us to the Garlic Glazed Chicken Pizza, I’ve been a true convert to the extraordinary blissfulness of pizza making nearly every Sunday evening.   I even make my own crust instead of using frozen bread dough.  Which, by the way, is an excellent substitute.  And did I mention the pizza stone Patty gave me as a gift in the 90’s has been taken from it’s old permanent post as a chair seat where the wicker caning once was?  I’ve arrived!

.

I’m not quite sure what to do about the chair, though.

Every now and again I get the biggest hankering for Frank’s Red Hot sauce. Usually I’d make some crispy, smothered chicken tenders or the gorgeous Buffalo Blue Burger, but this time my hankerin’ was on my beloved Sunday pizza night.  After some himmin’ and hawin’ I came up with this delicious concoction.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

enough for one 14″ pizza

Par-baked Perfect Pizza Crust or one of your choice.


.

Red Hot Sauce

In heavy saucepan over medium low heat combine:

1/2 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1/4 Cup Butter

1/4 Cup Honey

2 tsp Corn Starch

Simmer until thickened


.

Chicken

This part is completely optional.  I think the sauce is thick enough to stick on a non-coated chicken breast, but I didn’t want to leave anything to chance.

10-12 Ounces Chicken Breast 1″ diced

Toss in a little Flour seasoned with Kosher Salt & Pepper then in

1 Egg whipped

then back in the seasoned flour mixture

Cook in a non-stick skillet, on both sides, until slightly browned and just cooked through.

Once cooled use half of your Red hot Sauce to coat the chicken pieces.


.

To Assemble the Pizza

Take the cooled par-baked crust and top with

The other half of your Red Hot Sauce

1-1 1/2 Cups Mozzarella shredded

Coated Chicken Pieces

4 ounces Danish Blue Cheese crumbled

Bake in an oven that’s been pre-heated to 425°- 450° for at least a half hour.  Bake on a pizza stone (that should go in the oven when it’s pre-heating too) for about 20-25 minutes until cheese is very bubbly and slightly brown around the edges.

Remove from oven and top with:

1-2 Stalks Celery sliced

1/4 Cup Green Onions sliced

    You had me at Frank’s hot sauce! My husband actually green lighted pizza tonight (I could have it every day – him, not so much!)

    Tonight I am making a Mexican pizza – my base will be a mix of enchilada sauce and refried beans, then chopped chicken, corn, black beans, monterey jack cheese – and then when it comes out, shredded lettuce over the top (and pickled jalapenos for me!)

    Hope you have a great weekend – off to see what pizzas I may have missed!

    That looks so good! I am Biz’s twin sister. This is my first time to your site. I make a “brunch” pizza almost every weekend since I wake up late, it’s my breakfast and lunch. I love your version though, and its so much cheaper if you make it yourself!

    I always make my own crust. A friend passed on her family recipe, with the promise that I never share it. I have kept to that promise.

    This looks excellent. I have had Buffalo Chicken Pizza at assorted pizza places. It is one wonderful pizza.
