Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Saturday, May 1, 2021
If you love pizza dough and buffalo chicken wings here is the perfect combination of them both all in one pizza pie and how to make it super easy in this delicious recipe.

The pizza dough can be homemade or store-bought or even a premade shell.

If you love ranch dressing instead of blue cheese by all mean drizzle some over the top of your slice when it's piping hot out of the oven.

We are big blue cheese lovers, so I like to add a few crumbles on top.

This is the easiest way to make this pizza, add what you prefer, take this basic recipe that super easy and adapt it to how you would order a shredded buffalo chicken sandwich.

We just love buffalo sauce especially in our Chicken Buffalo Sauce Mac and Cheese, Buffalo Chicken Casserole Pie, and our Buffalo Loaded Potato Dip, it's so good!

This is a delicious buffalo sauce with chicken and blue cheese crumbles on top of an Italian pizza crust.


  • 1 pound of pizza dough, divided in half for two prepared baking sheets
  • 4 tablespoons of butter melted
  • 1/4 cup. hot sauce (we use Frank's), plus more for drizzling (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic powder
  • 2 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 cup whole milk shredded mozzarella cheese and cheddar combined
  • black pepper, red pepper flakes, or cayenne pepper for more heat
  • Optional:1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • Optional: cornmeal for the pizza pan


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Prepare two baking sheets and (roll out the dough to fit or make one large pizza or two smaller baking pans) with some cornmeal on it.
  3. Make as you stretch this dough to fit the pan, make an edge at the shoulder of the pan all the way around.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the hot sauce, garlic, melted butter, and chicken together ( add any of the pepper for additional heat to taste.
  5. Toss the chicken in some of the sauce and use the remaining sauce for topping the pizza in random places on top of the dough.
  6. Add the shredded blends of cheese ( and any other additional ingredient toppings you may like), then sprinkle the top with the blue cheese crumbles.
  7. Note: we like to add red pepper flakes, and sprinkle with dried oregano.
  8. Bake until the cheese is melted and browned nicely around 25 to 40 minutes for extra crispy.
  9. Drizzle with ranch or blue cheese dressing if preferred.
