Ingredients of Buffalo chicken pizza recipe:
- 1 lb. A pizza crust that has been halved For baking: cornmeal
- 4 tbsp. Butter
- 1/4 c. Add additional Frank’s red hot sauce, or any similar hot sauce, and drizzle (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
- 2 c. Pieces of cooked chicken
- 8 oz. Shreds of mozzarella rolled into a ball
- 1/3 c. Blue cheese crumbles
- 1/4 a little amount red onion, cut thinly, 2 Green onions, thinly sliced
Put in a preheated 500-degree oven. Spread cornmeal onto two big baking sheets that have been brushed with vegetable oil.
The second step is to melt the butter in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Melt in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, depending on the size. Stir garlic powder into the hot sauce in a large basin. The chicken should be coated with half of the buffalo sauce.
On a lightly floured surface, shape each pizza dough half into a ball. Press down the centers of the balls to form a 1/2 moon “crust. With the dough resting on the backs of your hands and knuckles, gently stretch the dough out with the aid of gravity by moving your hand’s inch by inch along the crust. Transfer to baking sheets.
Evenly spread half of the remaining buffalo sauce on top of each pizza (leaving the outer 1″ bare). Assure that each pizza has an equal amount of sauced chicken, shredded mozzarella, blue cheese, and red onion.
Fifth, put the pizzas in the oven for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted. Garnish with green onions and a dash of hot sauce, and serve right away (if using).
Zesty pizza with a hint of spicy buffalo sauce. Combine your pizza with wings for a complete meal or order online from the Pronto Pizza menu.
