Last week, Shawnda of Confections of a Foodie Bride devoted a whole week to pizza. I happened to have pizza on the menu for Friday evening, and I couldn’t help but be inspired by all the fun twists on pizza that she’d shared during the week. I’ve been in the mood for wings for a couple of weeks now. So, I thought, why not a buffalo chicken pizza? Yum!

I looked around on a few different recipes, and there are several variations out there. I settled on Racheal Ray’s version. Say what you will about her “stoups” and sammies, but what recipes I’ve tried of hers have yet to let me down. I liked the idea of a Buffalo pizza sauce, versus just a buffalo sauce, or ranch dressing as the base. I didn’t have blue cheese, so I just mixed in a little bit of cheddar. I was thinking feta might be a good substitute as well, with the nice salty kick it lends. And last, but certainly not least, the red onions. Which, get nice and charred under the intense heat in the oven.

Everyone really enjoyed it, in fact we ate the whole thing that night. Usually, on pizza night, there’s always at least a half a pizza left over between the traditional pizza I make for the boys, and the more adulterated pizza I’ll make for us. I’m already craving this again, so I have a feeling it won’t be long before it’s making an appearance on our dinner table soon. Make sure you have plenty of ice cold beer to serve with it, as they go down too easy together!

    It’s amazing how many different things we can make with buffalo chicken. I just made buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese and it was SO much better than traditional mac and cheese. Now I can make buffalo chicken pizza, which I’m sure will be absolutely heavenly. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe! 🙂

    Being from Buffalo, I’m always a little wary of recipes with Buffalo chicken — but I see you used Franks and butter to coat your chicken, so that’s a winner! Your pizza looks delicious!

    This pizza looks fab! A combo of two of my favorite things: buffalo chicken and pizza, of course!
