Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I might have Seasonal Affective Disorder. Or, I might be a hypochondriac. I hate that it gets dark so early already. It’s 8:45 and pitch black. A couple weeks ago at this time we’d just be leaving to go running. Our schedule is all out of whack. Plus, even when I come straight home from work and make dinner immediately, I still don’t have time to take decent pictures with natural light. Such problems I have.

I saw Macaroni & Cheesecake make this pizza last week & couldn’t wait to try it. We love Buffalo Chicken Dip around here & this is basically the same components. Plus bread. I was sold. 

I switched it up a little bit and used more chicken than the recipe called for. I intended on making the dough but ended up grabbing a Pillsbury pizza crust and didn’t mind it at all.  It came together really quick and it was really good. I’ll tell you what I did.

Source: Based off Macaroni & Cheesecake‘s post
Serves: 9 pieces, so 2-4 people

1 recipe pizza dough (I used Pillsbury)
2 Tb butter
1 cup Frank’s Buffalo Hot Sauce
1 lb bones skinless chicken breast, shredded
2 Tb brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I used Mexican four cheese blend)
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
Ranch Dressing for drizzling over top

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Spray pizza pan with cooking spray.  Spread dough out into a 10 to 12 inch circle or square on the pan. I chose square.  Pre-bake dough for 4-5 minutes.

While the dough pre-bakes, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Once melted, add the buffalo sauce and brown sugar and stir until combined.  Remove from heat and add shredded chicken (I boiled the chicken breasts & shredded with my favorite Kitchen Aid technique).  Stir to coat.
Remove the pizza crust from the oven and top with the chicken mixture, spreading it evenly over the crust.  Sprinkle cheese and blue cheese evenly over the top. I brushed the crush with a little olive oil spread & sprinkled on some garlic salt. 
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.  Remove from oven and cut into slices. Serve drizzled with ranch dressing.
