Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

With the Buffalo Bills playing the San Diego Chargers at 4:15 today and Tyler coming for dinner, tonight presented a perfect opportunity to repeat one of my favorite pizzas: Buffalo Chicken Pizza. The pizza made my Top 10 list for 2010 and even though I pride myself in making a different pizza each week, I have made  it by request a few times since.

I started by grilling two chicken breasts, shredding it, and soaking it in a little bit of Wegmans Buffalo Style Wing Sauce. I spread a thin layer of wing sauce and blue cheese dressing onto the pre-baked dough. Lastly, I sprinkled on mozzarella cheese and then let it bake.

I’ve made this chicken wing pizza several times before and this was definitely the best. The chicken tasted great and there was just the right amount of spice in the sauce. Tyler, a local connoisseur of buffalo chicken pizza, said that this was the best he has ever had. Now that’s a win.

Buffalo, NY

1964 was the year Anchor Bar first started serving Buffalo chicken wings. There are several family stories about how the snack came to be, but what’s certain is that Teressa and Frank Bellisimo’s creation was a hit. The classic mixture of butter, vinegar and cayenne pepper sauce is tossed with fried wings to create this finger licking food that is now enjoyed all across America.

Rather than going the traditional route of frying chicken wings, I chose to make my pizza recipe a little bit healthier by grilling chicken breast.  Then, I pulled the chicken with a fork and mixed it with a little bit of Anchor Bar Wing Sauce. After I pre-baked the dough I spread on about 1/4th cup of wing sauce, drizzled on chunky blue cheese dressing, sprinkled on mozzarella cheese and then topped it with the pulled chicken. After a short time in the oven the aroma of the pizza quickly filled the kitchen and our mouths started watering. The wing sauce along with the blue and mozzarella cheeses tasted delicious and had just the right amount of spice. My Buffalo Chicken Wing pizza recipe is one of my favorites and will make watching Buffalo Bills football games much more palatable.
