It's fun to get creative with homemade pizza. Baking a lot of small pizzas is a great way to make everyone their customised gourmet pizza, or you can go for one big pizza for everyone using all kinds of toppings.
There’s nothing quite like a traditional pizza, but chicken buffalo pizza is so much better. The tangy spiciness of the buffalo sauce and the creaminess of blue cheese is probably one of the best taste combinations ever created. So why not put the flavour of buffalo wings on a pizza? It’s the perfect culinary fit and so simple to prepare. Shredded chicken, spicy buffalo sauce, crumbles of flavourful blue cheese, and bright, lemony cilantro on top of the most delicious crust.
Got some leftover roasted chicken? This is the perfect recipe for using it up. Alternatively, shredding rotisserie chicken will do the trick. And in the absence of either option, you can boil some chicken breasts and shred them.
You can control how spicy or mild you want your buffalo chicken pizza to be by adjusting the amount of buffalo sauce you add. Buffalo wings fans will enjoy this pizza.

Toss the chicken with the buffalo sauce in a small bowl. Spread the blue cheese dressing over the pizza, and then add the shredded chicken. Top with blue cheese crumbles.
