Pizza Dough:

  • All-purpose flour-14 oz (400 g)
  • Instant yeast- 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar-1/ 2 teaspoon
  • Salt- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Olive oil- 2-3 tablespoons
  • Warm water- 200 ml ( 7 fl oz)

Pizza Topping:

  • Cooked shredded chicken- 2 cups
  • Fresh cilantro ( chopped)-1/2 cup

  • Dried parsley-2 teaspoons
  • Buffalo sauce- 1/2 cup
  • Garlic cloves (minced)-2 or 1 teaspoon
  • Salt- to taste
  • Ranch dressing- 1/3 cup
  • Mozzarella cheese (shredded)-1 1/2 cup
  • Cheddar cheese ( shredded)-1 cup
  • Blue cheese crumbs- 1/4 cup, optional


Pizza Dough:

  • Mix the flour, instant yeast, salt, sugar, olive oil and warm water in a bowl of your stand mixer. Attach the dough hook to the mixer and start on a low speed. Gradually increase the speed to high until a ball forms. Knead for 5 minutes.  If the dough is too sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour. And if it is very dry, add a small amount of warm water to make it soft. Shape the dough into a ball. Place in the bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Cover with plastic loosely and allow to rise for about 45 minutes to 1 hour in a warm place.

*Alternatively you can use store-bought dough.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza:

  • Preheat your oven to 500 ° F/ 260° C with the rack in the center. Line a baking tray/ sheet with parchment paper. Keep aside. If using a baking stone, start preheating it.
  • Combine the chicken, chives, cilantro, dried parsley, garlic, salt and buffalo sauce in a medium bowl.
  • Place the dough on the prepared tray and stretch it into a round with your hands. Don't fold it or over-work.
  • Spread the ranch dressing, layer on the chicken mixture and cheeses.
  • Bake in the preheated  oven for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese has melted. Top with extra chives. Enjoy!
