Ingredients

  • 1 pizza dough crust that uses about 2 cups of flour split dough in half after the first rise*
  • 4-8 ounces chicken cubed and cooked**
  • 12 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced or shredded
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup red onion slices
  • 2-4 tablespoons buffalo sauce***

Instructions

  1. Prepare pizza dough* and chicken** according to recipes (the links are in the post).
  2. Preheat oven with pizza stone or pan inside to 500 degrees for 30 minutes.
  3. Roll both pizza doughs out on a cornmeal surface. Brush with olive oil. Cover the pizza crusts in a layer of mozzarella cheese, use all cheese equally distributing it over both pizzas.
  4. Top both pizzas with chicken, blue cheese, and red onion spreading each topping out. Drizzle desired amount of buffalo sauce on pizza. If you like a mild pizza use less buffalo sauce.
  5. Transfer pizza to pizza pan or stone and cook until cheese starts to get melty and golden brown, about 10 minutes per pizza. I cooked the pizzas one at a time. If you want to do both together, you’ll probably need to cook the pizzas a little longer. Keep on eye on them.
  6. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, cut, and serve with buffalo sauce and blue cheese dressing!

Recipe Notes

*I recommend Naturally Ella's crust recipe linked in the post above.
**I used the 2Teaspoons homemade chicken tenders linked in post above. However, you can use boneless chicken breasts or precooked chicken tenders. Just cook chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces.
***You can make your own buffalo sauce with 1 tablespoon hot sauce, 1 teaspoon butter, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Just simmer until butter is melted and sauce is combined.
