Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Buffalo Chicken Pizza by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

This is a delicious recipe for a spicy buffalo chicken pizza. It is the perfect accompaniment to a football game. It combines two great flavors in one. You can adjust it with more heat by adding more hot sauce, or lower the heat by omitting the cayenne pepper and reducing the hot sauce. But be warned this pizza is spicy and irresistible. My husband and I loved this pizza, and I made my son his own little pizza with a sweet sauce, pepperoni, and vegetables.

This past Sunday was our first visit to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Disney has a great deal for Florida residents. Its 4 parks, 4 days for just $99. It is only good through May 25 though, and Easter week is blocked. But that works out to be about $25 a day per person. That’s a huge savings, a regularly priced ticket is now $79. Here’s a link for more information. My son had a blast, even though he didn’t exactly understand the waiting in line part. We got fast passes when we could. I think he was most enthralled with Mickey’s PhilharMagic 3-D movie. It was his first 3-D experience and he was entranced. He also loved the Tiger and Pooh and Peter Pan rides.  We took him on the teacups and the little roller coaster, but I think it was a little much. My husband thought it would be fun for him to pilot the airplane roller coaster ride, so they sat in the front seat. He didn’t cry, but he screamed the whole way! I asked if it was fun, and he said in a calm voice, “That was scary.” My son did get to meet Mickey and Minnie after the fireworks, and gave them a big hug, so sweet! He also got to be the guest conductor on the train. I can’t wait to go back when he’s a little older and 40 inches. There were many parts we didn’t see because we just didn’t have time. Its such a big park, with lots to do for kids of all ages.

  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 green pepper, sliced
  • 1/3 red pepper, sliced

Method

  1. Prepare chicken. Add salt, pepper, cayenne, and paprika to chicken. Preheat a large skillet. Drizzle with olive oil. Add chicken to skillet. Brown chicken. Add tomato paste, water, hot sauce, and oregano. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until sauce is very thick.

    I’ve been to Disney so many times, it’s insane. It was my parents’ favorite place to take us on vacation. The Winnie the Pooh ride continues to be my favorite – it is so colorful and pretty to look at! Sounds like you guys had fun :D

    This pizza looks fantastic. I’ve made buffalo chicken calzones before – also delicious. But I’ve yet to do a pizza with these flavors. Need to. Soon.

    I remember when I took my son for the first time to Disney World…sometimes is more fun to see their reaction than the rides :-)
    The pizza looks delicious, full of flavor and sure a win win for a ball game!

    This will be a great pizza for superbowl night. I can’t wait to try it! We are doing the 4 park, 4 day pass for Florida residents, too. It is such a great price. Hope you enjoy the other parks.

    I can’t wait to invite my friends to come over our house and serve this wonderful home made pizza and add beers to enjoy the fun mingling with my friends.

    Thanks for sharing.

    That is an awesome recipe. Seriously, I know that almost everyone says that to the point that it has become a cliche, but really, that is an awesome recipe. I love pizza and am constantly thinking on different ways to make the same old cheese, pep,and shrooms, even better.

    What really stands out to be in your recipe is that you used blue cheese with all the hot stuff. I love blue cheese and never thought of using it on a pizza…brilliant!

    There is only one thing that I suggest…more garlic. Yea, I know that no one will probably want to be near you for the next two days, but I really like my garlic.

    Thanks for the creative pizza recipe, keep ‘em conming.
