Buffalo Chicken Pizza


Buffalo Chicken Pizza (Or as I call it: "Za")
  
Who doesn't love Za?  I love Za!  In honor of the Ravens AGAIN playing the Patriots for the AFC Championship I decided to make some Buffalo Chicken Pizza!  Guess I need to do this every time they play now because clearly it was the reason that they won!  As the add on TV says: "It's not weird if it works."

I already know some things I would do differently so I'm just going to pretend like I did them that way in the directions and give you the benefit of my "mistakes."

I made two different ones: a buffalo chicken and red onion pizza and a buffalo chicken and pineapple pizza.  I personally loved the pineapple one, the sweet and spicy combo was really really good.

Ingredients:

  • pre-made pizza crust (I used a sourdough crust because the flavor would really compliment the buffalo)
  • tomato sauce
  • 1 bag shredded cheddar cheese (the sharp cheddar flavor also compliments the buffalo very well)
  • 1 chicken breast
  • Sweet Baby Rays buffalo sauce
  • 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chipolte chile powder (also picked to compliment the buffalo sauce and make it more smokey as opposed to chili powder making it more spicy)
  • Pizza blend of spices (pretty much basil and oregano) 
Directions:
  • Cut your chicken into bite sized cubes
  • Fill zip-loc bag with flour, garlic powder, salt, and chipolte chile & shake to mix
  • Add your chicken to the bag and shake until completely covered.
  • Cover a baking sheet with tinfoil and preheat oven to 350F
  • Dip your bite sized pieces of chicken into buffalo sauce and place on baking sheet
  • Bake chicken pieces until cooked through, approximately 20 minutes
  • While chicken is baking begin putting together your pizza
  • Pour about 1/2 can of tomato sauce into center of your dough
  • spread in circular motions across the crust, don't be obsessed with perfect and don't be afraid of the edge
  • sprinkle on your pizza seasoning, use a little or a lot, it's up to you!
  • evenly sprinkle on your cheese, again don't be afraid of the edge
  • add whatever other toppings you want, keeping in mind space for the chicken
  • When the chicken is done remove it and set oven temp to the dough's packing cooking directions
  • evenly spread your chicken on top of the pizza
  • place the pizza in the oven and cook as directed by the dough's packaging
  • Remove, cut and allow to cool
  • most importantly: Eat & Enjoy
For those of you that have been paying attention to the blog you will pretty much notice the similarities between this post and the buffalo wings post, keep it simple stupid and if something works then just stick to it!

This was delicious pizza!  I made a little extra chicken by accident so Jesse used it to make us buffalo chicken salad this week!  Can you tell we love buffalo?!

This would be a great addition to the buffalo wings for your Super Bowl Party!!!
