We’ve got some more exciting football to watch this weekend as our hometown team, the New England Patriots, are still in the playoffs – and this delicious Buffalo Chicken Pizza is on the game-day menu!
Is it just me or do you also feel that watching football has to go hand-in-hand with eating some great Buffalo chicken dishes? Sometimes it’s classic Buffalo wings, or dip, or bites – or even nachos! And this time around, we’re turning our fantastic Slow-Cooker Pulled Buffalo Chicken into a great pizza topping!
For our Buffalo chicken pizza, our perfect pizza dough is first topped with our terrific roasted tomato pizza sauce that has been kicked up a notch by stirring in a few tablespoons of Frank’s RedHot Sauce. Then crumbles of blue cheese, and shreds of Monterey Jack and creamy Fontina cheese are sprinkled over the top of the sauce. Finally, a topping of our pulled buffalo chicken is added and the pizza is baked in the oven until perfectly done and the cheese is all melted. Top with a final drizzle of hot sauce and you’re ready to dig in.
This Buffalo chicken pizza is one of our all-time favorites ways to eat pizza – and we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do! Go PATS!
