This recipe is everything you love about crispy chicken tossed in a buttery, hot-and-spicy Buffalo sauce piled on a golden bubbly cheese pizza garnished with crumbled bleu cheese, fresh chopped green onions and even more zesty Buffalo sauce.

PREPARATION: 

  1. Heat oven to 450°F.
  2. On a lightly oiled work surface, roll out or hand stretch pizza dough into a 10-inch x 14-inch rectangle. Place on an oiled baking sheet sprinkled lightly with cornmeal.
  3. Spread pizza sauce evenly over pizza crust; top with 6 ounces shredded cheese.
  4. To prepare Buffalo sauce; combine cayenne pepper sauce and butter in a bowl and whisk to blend.
  5. Combine 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce and heated chicken strips in a large bowl and toss to coat. Transfer Buffalo chicken strips to a cutting board and slice into 1-inch strips. Arrange on pizza crust; top with remaining shredded cheese.
  6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Remove from oven.
  7. Top with crumbled bleu cheese, chopped green onions, and remaining Buffalo sauce. Slice pizza into 3-inch squares.
  8. Serve with ranch or bleu cheese dressing for dipping or drizzling, if desired.
