Pizza Part Seis: Buffalo Chicken Pizza

The idea for Buffalo Chicken Pizza isn’t exactly new, but the ones I’ve had while out at pizzerias or ordering in have basically made the pizza as usual and then added buffalo chicken on top. Tasty, yes, but I wanted something different.

Being that I love Buffalo Chicken Dip, I decided to try making pizza using a sauce with the same ingredients and see how everyone liked it. It went over so well that I had to make it again just a few days later to appease the demanding populace in our home. ;)  Here are the tantalizing results.

Cook the chicken breast by either boiling or sautéing with a little oil in a skillet.

While the chicken is cooking, you can prepare the sauce. In a small pan, heat the ranch dressing and cream cheese, mixing thoroughly. Set aside to cool.

When the chicken is done, shred it by using two forks to pull it apart, or just use your hands, which I sometimes do. Add the hot sauce and mix well to coat.

Press the pizza dough onto the greased pizza pan or sheet pan. Spread the cream cheese/ranch sauce on  evenly. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top.

Distribute the hot sauce-coated shredded chicken on top, and it’s all done! Pop into the oven set at 425° for about 18 minutes. The bottom of the crust should be golden brown. Cut with a pizza cutter (rotary) or knife, three the long way by four the short way. Enjoy! ~TMMF
