Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I love buffalo sauce.  On pizza.  On risotto.  On shredded chicken.  I love buffalo sauce!  A special thanks to Jessica at How Sweet It Is for this amazing recipe!  It'll definitely be one of my go-to pizza recipes!

This past Friday I was in the mood for something a little more along the lines of guilty pleasure...  Yes, I know that pizza is not the healthiest food out there, but it sure tastes good!  And homemade pizza is even better.

I start my full-marathon training today, so I think it was an effort to eat good food before having to be conscious of the food that I put in my mouth until September 23, 2012.  Dear Lord, I am running a full-marathon.  26.2 miles.  What the heck was I thinking?  Let's pray that I don't die.

If I do, at least I know that I had this deliciousness beforehand!

Grab an ice cold beer and enjoy this awesome homemade pizza!

I typically would make my own pizza dough, but I had NO time - working a morning shift at LexiWynn and an afternoon shift at Starbucks...  2-3 hours to allow the dough to rise?  Yea, I was too hungry to wait...  So I ran over to the closest grocery store and bought ready to bake pizza dough.

Let it be known that I hate blue cheese.  Eating something that tastes like moldy stinky feet is just not something that I find appealing, let alone appetizing.  However...I still used it in this recipe.  And surprisingly, there was a hint of the blue cheese.  It was not overpowering at all.  I kind of enjoyed it...  I did however skip out on the gorgonzola cheese.  Come on, that is just pushing your luck - blue cheese AND gorgonzola?! Ha.  All other cheese?  Obsessed.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing 1/4 cup ranch dressing 10 ounces chicken, shredded 1 cup shredded, smoked cheddar cheese 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese 1/2 cup parmesan cheese 1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola buffalo wing sauce for drizzling

Preheat oven to 375° F.  Roll out pizza dough so it fits a pan – I used a regular round pizza pan. In a bowl, mix buffalo wing sauce, blue cheese and ranch. Spread over dough as a sauce. Top with 1/2 cup each of cheddar and jack cheeses. Add chicken on top (I used a food processor to shred up the chicken), then remaining cheeses including parmesan. Drizzle liberally with buffalo wing sauce. Add crumbled gorgonzola on top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.
