Buffalo Chicken Pizza Recipe

I love hot wings.  Love them.  I don’t know how many anniversaries, special occasions, and random nights out have spent eating wings.

As is the case with a lot of my recipes, they’re born out of an accident.  I get a craving and come up with a new way to present it.  Last week I somehow got it into my head I wanted pasta.  I knew there was a batch of sauce in the freezer but when I checked the pantry we didn’t have pasta.  So, I scrapped that idea.

I finally came up with a recipe when I started working backward from the protein and cheese I did have and from there,  the ideas started flowing.  I could do some sort of club type pizza with turkey bacon but that didn’t sound very appetizing either.

I finally settled on making Buffalo Chicken Pizza.  While I had never personally attempted it, my husband had with moderate success so I was feeling I might be able to pull this off.  I did a variation of my Buffalo Chicken Bites recipe and threw it on a pizza.  And you know what?!  My spur of the moment idea ended up being a success!

    Did you know that McDonalds has a new buffalo sauce? I know you are a vegetarian but surely you can put it on something!! :)
