Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Yesterday I posted the recipe for the pizza dough, well this pizza is what we used half the dough for. We froze the rest for making pizza in the future. This pizza was so good and so easy. Since we make the Buffalo Chicken Dip Appetizer quite often we had the wing sauce on hand. Sometimes the wing sauce is hard to find, but I know that Cub Foods has a couple varieties in the condiments section. I also saw a couple recipes for homemade wing sauce, so I may try that sometime in the future.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza & Pudding

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

1 large chicken breast
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup wing sauce
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
2 ounces (½ cup) mozzarella, shredded
1/4 cup red onion or scallions, diced very fine
1/4 cup diced tomatoes
fresh or dried chives
12-16 ounces pizza dough (1/2 of this pizza dough recipe)

For the chicken: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Bake the chicken at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

After the chicken is baked dice the chicken breast into 1 inch pieces. Mix the wing sauce with the chicken.

Assemble the pizza: Place the pizza dough on a pan. Spread the blue cheese dressing evenly on the pizza dough; top with the chicken, then the cheese, and finally the onions and tomatoes and chives.

Bake the pizza for 8-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is browned. Let the pizza rest about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
