Buffalo Chicken Pizza


When we moved from New Jersey, we left behind some good food. We would frequent some of the local pizza shops and get large pizzas with the perfect crust and toppings …. fast forward 2 years later in Georgia in our town, QT and Little Cesar’s often where we fill the pizza void. That is until I started making it myself. 

Making pizza is not hard. It takes good tools, seasoning and time. The more you make it the more you master it . Buffalo Chicken Pizza is one of our favorites. This is how I make mine. 

Tools Needed

  • Kitchen Aide Mixer
  • Oven 
  • Large Cookie Sheet
  • Several mixing bowls
  • Knife 
  • Spatula 

Ingredients 

  • Dough ( can be purchased made at store or homemade I prefer homemade) 
  • 2 lbs of chicken breast 
  • 8 oz bag of 4 cheese Italian shredded cheese 
  • 8 oz bag of mozerella cheese 
  • 1 cup + drizzling of Frank’s buffalo wing sauce 
  • Ken’s Blue cheese dressing 
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons Goya Adobo
  • Black pepper to your taste 

Directions 

1. In a bowl, season the chicken breast with the garlic powder, Adobo and pepper. Add a little oil when seasoning it will help keep the chicken moist. Place in pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Let sit on the counter for ten minutes before proceeding to next step. 


2. While chicken is sitting, raise the temperature of the oven to 425 degrees. Next, spread the dough out on the greased cookie sheet. It is better to spread by hand but you can use a rolling pin to spread but let the dough rest again for a few minutes to rise again. No need to be perfect. 


3. You can shred the chicken by hand, cut it with a knife or use your kitchen aide * my favorite way *.  Add chicken to your kitchen aide using the paddle attachment. And put the chicken in and put speed on low slowly increasing to medium until shredded to your liking. This will take a few minutes. Add 1/2 cup to a full cup of the buffalo wing sauce and stir the shredded chicken in the kitchen aide. 


4. Add the chicken to the rested dough evenly.


5. Add the mix of cheeses over the chicken. Add as much or as little as you want. I had some more chicken so I added more . 


6. Drizzle some more buffalo wing sauce all over pizza. 

7. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes or until the sides and underneath are golden brown. 


8. Drizzle blue cheese dressing over the pizza or place in side for Dipping.

Very easy and so tasty ! Kids can have fun making this or pepperoni or cheese pizza ! 

This is a great pizza recipe to have handy for game night or football food etc. 

Enjoy !

Mini Tomato Pizza

So after some trial and error recipes this weekend ( crock pot bread and a chicken recipe ) , I finally made something worth the talking about. I had some tomatoes that needed to used before they got squishy ( and I was hungry and wanted something quick). When my daughter saw me making these she kept saying, “you making tomato pizza mami?” So I said yes …. but with no dough or bread ….. end result delicious, easy and did I mention really low carb ? And even if you were not dieting, this is still pretty great! 


Tools Needed

Cutting Board

Sharp knife ( serrated if possible ) 

2 cup round container 

Medium sized cookie sheet 

Oven at 350 degrees and 450 or broil. 

Ingredients 


2 Big tomatoes (beef steak are the best but use what you have ) 

1/2 to 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 

3/4 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 

1/2 tsp of oregano 

1 tsp garlic powder

Cooking spray or Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions

1. Cut tomatoes about 1/2 inch thick
2. In the 2 cup container add the Parmesan cheese, oregano and garlic powder and mix.


3. Take the tomato slices and cover each side with the Parmesan mixture and put on a greased pan or use some cooking spray. 


4. Cover each piece with the shredded mozzarella. Sprinkle some extra oregano if desired.


5. Place in your oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. 


6. Take out of the oven and increase the heat to 450 or broil and put back in the oven until mozzarella is melted or browning. 


7. Add salt and pepper if you do desire. I didn’t need to but it is just preference. (Seen below is top and bottom of the Tomato. )
