Everything you love about crispy chicken tossed in a buttery, hot-and-spicy Buffalo sauce piled on a golden bubbly cheese pizza garnished with crumbled bleu cheese, fresh-chopped green onions and even more zesty Buffalo sauce. 

Why Try? Because nothing beats the bold craveable flavor combination of Buffalo chicken and hot-from-the-oven pizza on game day!

Balance this indulgent pizza with a side of fresh veggie sticks, such as bell pepper strips, carrots, celery sticks and grape tomatoes partnered with ranch or bleu cheese dressing for dipping.

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 oz.) prepared pizza dough (refrigerated or purchased from your local pizzeria)
  • 6 tablespoons Cayenne Pepper Sauce
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • Cornmeal for dusting
  • 1/2 cup prepared pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 package (about 12 ounces) crispy chicken strips, prepared according to package directions
  • 1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • Ranch or bleu cheese dressing (optional)

Preparation

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F.
  • 2 On a lightly oiled work surface, roll out or hand stretch pizza dough into a 10-inch x 14-inch rectangle. Place on an oiled baking sheet sprinkled lightly with cornmeal.
  • 3 Spread pizza sauce evenly over pizza crust; top with 6 ounces shredded cheese.
  • 4 To prepare Buffalo sauce; combine cayenne pepper sauce and butter in a bowl and whisk to blend.
