Spicy Buffalo Chicken Pizza – Homemade deliciousness!
Spicy homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza is pure food bliss. Make the dough and hot sauce in the Thermomix or by hand. 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. Excess toppings make the pizza soggy and stop the pizza base from becoming crisp. When it comes to pizza’s, less is definitely more!
Buffalo chicken pizza is really easy to make but it’s a bit time-consuming making the dough from scratch. If you’re cooking this on a weeknight you might 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 girl’s gotta do! Or, you could just save this recipe for the weekend. Making pizza dough from scratch is really simple, but 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.
The complete recipe for my pizza dough can be found here. It 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 the recipe 🙂
