Buffalo Chicken Pizza is a sure fire way to spice up any party! Spicy Buffalo Chicken mounded on Homemade Pizza Crust then topped with shredded cheddar cheese and a drizzle of Blue Cheese Dressing. One slice is never enough!
If you like spicy food as much as we do then this is definitely the pizza for you! After years of having my Buffalo Chicken Dip and Sriracha Chicken Dip devoured in record time I knew it was the perfect topping for my next pizza creation. I think we have a new family favorite!
Football fans know that spicy foods are pretty much a must at any Game Day party. So I guess that makes this Buffalo Chicken Pizza the perfect recipe for your next football party.
I made this one for the AFC Championship Game a couple weeks ago and it was a big hit. It pretty much disappeared as soon as I put it out.
Unfortunately, the food was the only good thing about that Game Day! The Patriots will not be in the Super Bowl this year. 🙁 So this year the Super Bowl will be all about the food for me. I can’t wait for all that great Game Day food!

- Take dough out of bowl and cut in half
- Work each ball by pulling down the sides and tucking under the bottom of the ball. Repeat 4 or 5 times.
- Cover the dough with loosely fitted plastic wrap and let rest 15 to 20 minutes.
- At this point, the balls can be used or wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
