My girls love buffalo wings, and bbq chicken. I wanted pizza, so we compromised I made buffalo chicken pizza and bbq chicken pizza.
I would normally make my own dough, but it was already 7 pm when I came up with this idea, and I still needed to defrost chicken. So I used a pre-made crust this time, and it wasn’t as good as fresh, but it was ok for the starving crowd.
This really doesn’t require a recipe, just a few directions. Cook the chicken, leftover rotissore chicken would work great for this, I had to use my indoor grill, the cut into small pieces.
For the buffalo chicken pizza, I added about equal parts tabasco sauce and melted butter to the chicken and let it soak while I gathered the rest of the ingredients. Since buffalo wings are served with celery and blue cheese those are a natural choice, so I spread the chicken over the crust then sprinkled the blue cheese over that. I didn’t think that would be enough cheese so a layer of mozzarella is next. Then a little diced onions and off to the oven it goes 425F about 15-20 minutes. Its more about the doneness of the cheese and the crust than the time, so check at 15 and eyeball it from there. When it comes out sprinkle a few more onions and very thinly sliced celery.
The barbecue chicken pizza is made in the same manner. Add bbq sauce to the cut up cooked chicken, spread some extra sauce on the crust, then the chicken, then the mozzarella cheese. Next sprinkle the sliced onion and yellow, red, and green peppers. Bake at 425F about 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let me know if you need any other directions. I hope that these two pizzas inspire you to make up your own combinations that they don’t make at the delivery place. Maybe next time I’ll make a philly cheese pizza, or taco pizza or a blt; sweet and sour chicken pizza. Just use your imagination and come up with a blueberry strusel pizza for dessert.
