Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Once you start making homemade pizza it is hard to be satisfied with any other kind. It is so nice to control exactly how your pizza is made and what goes into it.  I found a great recipe for pizza dough at Annie's Eats and try to keep one in the freezer so I am always ready for when the pizza craving hits me.  I move the dough to the refrigerator the night before.  

If you don't want to go the homemade dough route some other options include:  refrigerated homemade dough in the bakery section of your grocery store, sometimes you can find frozen balls of dough in the freezer section or you can usually find a premade, baked pizza crust.  Any of these will work. We like trying different topping combinations and our latest flavor is buffalo chicken. 

For sauce combine 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce and 2-3 tablespoons Frank's hot sauce. Spread over pizza dough rolled onto parchment paper.

Top with cooked chicken and green onions and then cover with shredded cheeses (colby-jack and cheddar)

 Transfer to hot pizza stone and bake at 450 degrees 12-15 minutes.

 Top or serve with a side of Ranch or blue Cheese dressing.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
pizza dough of your choice, here's a homemade version I like to use from Annie's Eats

1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Worcestshire Sauce
2-3 Tablespoons Frank's RedHot Sauce
Mix together, then spread on dough

2 diced green onions
4 oz colby-jack cheese, shredded
4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked, diced and mixed with 1 Tablespoon Frank's RedHot Sauce

Cook pizza in 450 degree oven for 12-15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly and crust is lightly browned. (If you are using a non baked pizza dough) otherwise follow the directions that  came with your pizza crust.
