Spicy Buffalo Chicken Pizza is pure food bliss. Make the dough and hot sauce in the Thermomix or by hand. Cook it in the oven or in the Ovana Pizza oven. However you like to cook, you NEED to try this recipe!

The key to a perfect pizza is not to overload it with too many toppings. The spicy buffalo sauce flavour shines through with just a small amount of chicken, onion, baby spinach, and cheese. The pizza is then topped with a swirl of aioli once it’s cooked. 

Adding excess toppings makes the pizza soggy and stops the base from becoming crisp. When it comes to pizzas, less is definitely more!

Since we bought the Ovana Pizza oven we have been making so many delicious pizzas. Each pizza only takes 2 minutes to cook so it is a much faster option than the oven. I am giving instructions for the conventional oven or the Ovana Pizza Oven. 

Tips For Making Pizza in the Ovana Pizza Oven

The Ovana Pizza oven cooks the pizza on a hot stone and reaches temperatures of up to 500 degrees Celcius. Pizza takes just two minutes to cook at this temperature. Because of the fast cook time, I tend to stick with toppings that cook quickly.

  • Pre-heat the oven with the door on until it reaches around 400 degrees
  • Use semolina on the base of the pizza
  • Place the pizza base on the launching paddle.
  • Shuffle the pizza base to ensure it isn’t sticking, add more semolina if necessary
  • Add toppings to the pizza that cook quickly
  • Don’t overload the pizza base
  • Shuffle the paddle to check that the pizza base still moves freely on the paddle
  • Launch the pizza onto the stone in one confident movement.
  • Start turning the pizza after 15 to 20 seconds. 
  • Turn constantly to prevent burning
  • Remove with the paddle 

Tips for Cooking in the Oven

Cooking pizza in the oven takes a lot longer due to oven temperature limitations. 

  • Pre-heat oven to the maximum temperature
  • Use a pizza tray with holes to ensure the base is cooked
  • Spray the pizza tray with oil
  • Don’t overload the pizza base
  • Don’t cook too many pizza’s at once or the oven will lose temperature

My buffalo chicken pizza is really easy to make, pizza dough is really simple to make in the Thermomix, but it can be time-consuming kneading it by hand.

If you don’t have a Thermomix you may want to take a shortcut and use prepared pizza bases.

It almost sounds like blasphemy to suggest buying a pizza base. But then again, girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do! Or, you could just save this recipe for the weekend. For the nicest tasting pizza dough, it’s best to make it ahead of time and allow it to proof, so although dough is simple to make, waiting for it to proof when you have starving children to feed isn’t fun 🙂

I’ve included a link to my pizza dough recipe, but feel free to use whatever base works for you.

Step by Step Buffalo Chicken Pizza

The first step is to make the pizza dough and allow it to proof.

Making Pizza dough literally takes 3 minutes of active time. Then you leave the dough to proof for 20-40min.

Once the dough is proofing you’re ready to make the spicy Buffalo Sauce.

Then build and bake your pizza, so let’s get started with some tips 🙂
