Smoky-Hot Buffalo Chicken Pizzas

Southern Living MAY 2006

  • Yield: Makes 6 appetizer servings
  • Cook time: 10 Minutes
  • Prep time: 10 Minutes


  • 2 cups diced deli-roasted chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoons chipotle hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 8 tablespoons low-fat blue cheese dressing, divided
  • 2 (7-inch) prebaked pizza crusts
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded 2% Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)


1. Stir together chicken, hot sauce, and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 45 seconds or until heated.

2. Spread 3 Tbsp. blue cheese dressing evenly over each pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border around edges. Top evenly with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.

3. Bake directly on oven rack at 450° for 8 to 10 minutes or until crusts are golden and cheese is melted. Drizzle remaining 2 Tbsp. dressing evenly over pizzas; sprinkle with green onions, if desired. Cut each pizza into 3 wedges.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Mama Mary's Gourmet Pizza Crusts. For a softer crust, bake pizza on a pizza pan or baking sheet.
