What is Buffalo Chicken Pizza?
Buffalo Chicken pizza isn’t made with buffalo; let’s get that straight first. Buffalo chicken pizza is made with buffalo sauce, which is typically a spicy orange-coloured sauce that is amazing on so many things, including pizza!
Buffalo chicken pizza can be topped with numerous different toppings and served with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
What Toppings are We Choosing?
When it comes to pizza, I am a believer that you can put whatever you want on top. So, with that being said, I baked my pizza with an oil olive mixture, buffalo chicken, cheese and tomatoes for this recipe.
Once the pizza was cooked, I added green onions, cilantro, blue cheese dressing and more buffalo sauce!
What Sauce Works Best?
Since buffalo sauce is already such a strong flavour, I didn’t want anything that was too crazy to compete with it.
I used an olive oil mixture made with garlic, salt & pepper for this recipe. This is enough to give the dough a delicious flavour without taking away from the buffalo sauce.
As mentioned earlier- ranch or blue cheese is an excellent option for dipping or drizzling on top!
Why You’ll Love It!
Buffalo sauce is actually made with straightforward ingredients and can be a healthy sauce option to add to your diet.
It has a bold flavour that can take a bland dish and make it taste amazing!
If you’re getting sick of the classic pepperoni and cheese, this is a great way to switch it up while still curbing your pizza craving.
