Buffalo Chicken Pizza
We are fans of Buffalo Chicken Wings with the fixins’. I recreated this spicy, flavour-packed meal on a pizza. The sauce is Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce. Add some chopped chicken breasts, crumbled blue cheese, a little green onion, and melty mozzarella. Dip your slices in Ranch dressing if you like to cool down the heat of the sauce.

Do I Have to Use Blue Cheese for Buffalo Chicken Pizza
No, you don’t have to use blue cheese for this pizza. Blue cheese is an acquired taste. I find people either love it or hate it. I personally love the pungent flavour. John, on the other hand, said that he would have preferred it without. He said the pizza was delicious except for the cheese. Keep it or leave it depending on your own personal taste.
What to Swap for Blue Cheese on Pizza
Reach for classic mozzarella cheese in replace of the blue cheese. I find it works just as good. If you are like our home, a house that is divided, then divide up the pizza. On part add in the blue cheese and other half do mozzarella. It works, and everyone can get the flavors they enjoy!

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Start by rolling out and pre-cooking your pizza dough partly. Then work on spreading the hot buffalo sauce around the pizza dough and leaving a gap for the edges. Then add on your favorite toppings, and bake until golden in color and toppings are melted. Slice and serve and enjoy!
Can I Use Shredded Chicken Instead of Cubed Chicken
Of course. You can use any pre-cooked chicken that doesn’t have a ton of spices or seasoning added to it. You don’t want it overpowering in flavor or it will affect the outcome of the pizza.
What is the Best Buffalo Sauce to Use
You are welcome to use a homemade buffalo sauce or buy your favorite brand. Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce is a rather popular sauce and the one I personally used. But, know there are tons of brands out there that you can honestly buy and use.
It is all about personal preference, so buy what you like. It is a strong flavor and will stand out in the pizza so quality is key. If you buy a cheap sauce you will be able to taste it in your pizza.
Best Way to Store Leftover Pizza
You can allow your pizza to cool down and then store any leftovers you have in an airtight container in the fridge. Or if you have a sealable bag you can easily place the slices flat inside and go that route. Then store the pizza in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Can I Freeze Leftover Pizza
You can freeze this pizza if you don’t plan to eat it all. Just allow it to cool and then place in a freezer-friendly container. Store up to three months in the freezer. Thaw in the fridge before you go to reheat it.
I’m curious – are you a fan of blue cheese? Would you add it to the pizza or leave it off?
