Oven-Baked Buffalo Chicken Pizza: Assemble pizza as directed, and bake according to package directions for pizza crust.
This is really funny because I made this myself last night but had not seen this recipe until today. I used a fresh whole wheat pizza dough I purchased. If you want it crispy bake it for about 5-8 minutes, until partially done. Then add the toppings. I pan sauteed chicken tenders, then topped then with Steve's and Ed's Extra Hot Buffalo sauce (no fat) and cooked a bit more very briefly. Then I topped the crust with a gruyere parmesan blended cheese I bought from Trader Joe's and grated myself. Topped it with cut up pieces of the chicken, drizzled the whole pizza with more sauce, and sprinkled some blue cheese fairly sparingly over the top. Forgot to put on my freshly chopped garlic, darn. Next time! Baked it until nicely browned. Served with a light salad of baby spinach and kale, pear, and dried cranberries, tossed with an orange and sesame dressing, with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Nice, simple dinner. If I did not have Steve's and Ed's, I would have used Frank's.
I could not find a 16-oz pre-baked pizza crust. I used a Boboli 10-oz. thin crust pizza instead (I, and my family, do not like really bready pizza). Otherwise, the ingredients were exactly to the recipe (used Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce). And...since I live on the 60th floor of a condo, I had to bake the pizza in my oven. It was awesome, and made exactly 3 servings. The only thing I served with it was a bottle of red wine. Such a nice dinner! SO good!
Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce is always my first choice. Great sauce! This is an easy and delicious quick meal. I buy pizza dough at my local grocery or use the refrigerated pizza dough which I like more than premade crust.
