Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Super Bowl parties are not about executing culinary greatness.  They’re about football, beer, commercials, and whatever you can shove in your face.  I can’t tell you how much crap I got for posting a recipe that called for precooked meatballs, as I did with the Sweet BBQ Meatballs post.  I believe the phrase was, “Oh no you didn’t!”  Frankly, I found the razing I got quite humorous.  The only thing I could say was, “Just wait until you see my next Super Bowl friendly post on Friday.”  (insert giggle here)

There is nothing I enjoy more about writing this blog than hearing about how people are enjoying the recipes I write.  This past weekend, I experienced a wonderful moment when my cousin shared stories about how her children love many of my recipes.  Her young son, Joshua, even gave her a massive bear hug when he heard she was making Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese.  This recipe was inspired by Lisa, her husband and two wonderful children.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time
Recipe Type: Entree
Serves: 4-6 people
  • 1 (14 oz.) can pre-made pizza dough
  • 1 Tbl. olive oil
  • 4-6 breaded chicken tenders, frozen and precooked
  • 1/3 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce
  • 2/3 cup bleu cheese, crumbled
  • 1 ½ cup Italian blend cheese, shredded
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat the chicken tenders in the microwave on high for 3 – 4 minutes, or until heated through. Lightly pat the dough in a greased 9”X13” sheet pan. Brush the top of the dough with olive oil. Chop the tenders into cubes and toss with the hot sauce until completely coated. Evenly distribute the chicken tender chunks, bleu cheese, and Italian blend cheese across the dough.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown. For an added kick, lightly drizzle with additional hot sauce before serving.

    ¿A qué persona no le gusta saborear una pizza artesanal?. Ya sea con pollo, con lacón, ternera gallega, chorizo de la región, grelos, o cualquier ingrediente que se nos antoje, hacen que la pizza, sea un plato muy apetecible, a cualquier hora del día; al igual que vuestra suculenta pizza, que nos invita a elaborar.
    En Galicia, destacan las pizzas del restaurante italiano Chicote en Pontevedra (https://www.quetecomo.es/Pontevedra-restaurante-italiano-Chicote-camino-de-ferro-6.php).
    Ya es hora, de que las pizzas no lleven el clásico jamón, mozzarella y salsa de tomate.
    Excelente receta.

    The funny thing is I just bought frozen meatballs at the grocery store and fixing then for dinner as we speak. Ironic that I came across your post. I love recipes that are easy and quick and buying premade things fall right into that.

    Hey I use frozen meatballs all the time with my sweet and sour meatballs. Never heard a complaint yet. I bet shrimp would be a delicious substitution for the chicken just for something different. What do you think?

    Cory, I so “get it”.

    Like you, I cook mostly from scratch, but there are times when I take a break and use convenience items.

    I haven’t heard any complaints, perhaps just an occasional snide comment from someone who is not even eating the food just reading along. Hehehe, it’s likely they are not even cooking. :)

    Your pizza looks terrific; I’ve never had Buffalo Chicken Pizza ~ I’m sure it’s tasty!

    Keep up the good work, I love following along and I trust your taste. Your photography is icing on the cake!

    I make a buffalo chicken pizza quite often – my recipe differs a bit from yours because I hate canned dough and frozen chicken! I make my own dough and use a boneless breast. Still equally as delicious, I bet.

    we are getting ready to make yet another culinary cory creation in preparation for the super bowl. Thanks for making it simple.

    every thing used to come out of a box, ha!

    Joshua thinks he is famous now..LOL!

    Cory, this looks good!
    I just got a video camera; I can’t wait to add some of my own pics to my blog as well.

    Have a great weekend!

    It may be good, but I can’t see me liking anything hot on a pizza.

    I never even saw the big attraction to hot wings. I think they’re a waste of perfectly good chicken. I stop by and pick up the plain fried ones locally or fry or bake them myself.

    It’s all about the Franks man. I could drink that stuff by itself, it’s so damn good. Nice post!! I think I may have to try this one!! Cheers!

    Honestly…it’s refreshing to see you put in some really tasty things that don’t require you to slave away all day in the kitchen. I enjoy both your pre-made and exploratory recipes very much. Keep up the good work! I love good buffalo chicken and this looks fab!

    Oh Cory, what a sweet story.

    I’m hoping that after this week you’ll be putting the Culinary BACK in your name!

    This is one of our fave pizzas!!!! Next to BBQ chicken pizza. Great idea for a football party. Why order out for pizza and wings if you can have them on one piece of crust?!
