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 !

Chicken BOMB! 

It’s been a few weeks and honestly I was so bummed out that I couldn’t find the inspiration for anything new or creative to try. But today was a good day to try something new and kill it in the kitchen. If you like mild to hot, food this is for you . Although I have a small modification for people who don’t like spicy foods or can’t handle the heat at the end.

First this is not my original recipe, I did however make it to my taste. Remember cooking isn’t always about following a recipe it’s about making good food. We are not salt and pepper people unless it’s on a good porterhouse steak! So when I saw this post for Chicken Bombs from Skinny Momma on Facebook I wanted to dig in! And I am sure you will too.

Chicken Bombs

Ingredients 

  
4-5 nice size chicken breasts

4-5 jalepenos sliced in half and with seeds and ribs removed 

1-8 oz block of cream cheese (room temperature) 

3/4 cup of cheddar cheese

3/4 tsp of garlic powder

1-2 tsp of Goya Adobo 

20 slices of bacon 

2 tbls of honey barbecue sauce 

Tools Needed 

1 baking pan

1 knife

1 cutting board

1 bowl

1 spoon

1 fork 

Your oven 400 degrees 

Directions 

Take chicken breasts and remove fat and cut in half. Butterfly or cut a slit into the chicken breast. Season the chicken breast with the Adobo on both sides. Set aside.

    
Take the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and the garlic powder and mix together. Take the halved jalepenos and fill them in with the cheese mix.

  
   
 Take the jalepenos and place cheese side down in the middle of the chicken and roll the chicken around the jalepeno.

  
Take the bacon and wrap around the chicken.

  
Place in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until you see the bacon get crispy. Remove from the oven and drain the bacon fat. Cover each piece of chicken with the barbecue sauce and reduce the heat to 350 degrees and put the chicken bombs back into the oven for an additional ten minutes.

  
Remove and let sit for 5 minutes and serve !

  
*If you do not like the heat. Put the cheese mix directly on the chicken and roll chicken and then wrap in the bacon.*


This is sooooo good !!!! 


Enjoy!
