Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe
This buffalo chicken pizza is full of spicy buffalo sauce, chicken, and drizzled with a creamy ranch dressing. Use my easy homemade pizza dough or start with a store bought crust.
ADDITIONAL RECIPE NOTES
Swap the cream cheese and ranch mixture for blue cheese dressing.
Sprinkle blue cheese over the pizza before baking.
Use canned chicken in place of leftover cooked chicken.
Reduce the buffalo sauce to make this more mild.
Why isn’t my pizza dough rising?
You’ll want to be sure that your yeast isn’t old and that your water is the right temperature. Right around 110 degrees is perfect for yeast…too cold and it won’t bloom, too hot and it will die.
How can I make my dough rise faster?
Keeping your dough in a warm spot will help it to rise a bit more quickly. We use the proof function on our oven and keep the bowl in there. It still takes awhile, but it’s quicker than letting it sit on a cool countertop.
What type of flour should I use for pizza dough?
We tend to use all purpose flour because that’s what we always have on hand. If you have bread flour or want to purchase some, that will create a chewier crust due to the higher gluten content in bread flour.
1 Pizza Crust
4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
1 teaspoon ranch seasoning mix
