Ok, pizza fans – are you ready for this?
Get ready to dig into one the most satisfying and scrumptious pizzas you'll ever have – introducing my recipe for buffalo chicken pizza!
We're pizza lovers in this house – it's no secret.
Just about any form of pizza and pizza related goodies are always a huge hit in this family – recently though, my family has been requesting my buffalo chicken pizza quite often!
I mean, really, who can resist a tasty looking pizza pie like this? 🙂
This recipe makes for one scrumptious and irresistibly cheesy buffalo chicken pizza. It's not just the cheese that makes this so amazing. It's also all about those succulent chunks of chicken breast drenched in zingy buffalo wing sauce!
Speaking of which, have you checked out my recipe for homemade buffalo sauce?
My goodness, if you haven't yet, please do! The homemade version of the sauce is what I use when I make buffalo chicken pizza and is soooooo amazing – it's one of those recipes I'm super proud of. 😀
Oh, and some of the magic deliciousness is all about the ranch dressing spread on the dough instead of traditional pizza sauce – seriously – if you haven't tried doing this, you're missing out. Seriously, trust me on this – it's sooo good!
If you'd like, you can also try using blue cheese dressing instead of the traditional pizza sauce. I'm a ranch kind of girl so that's what I used for the pizza in the pictures here. 🙂
