Equipment

  • Pizza pan
  • slow cooker or instant pot

Ingredients
  

  • 16 oz pre-made wheat or white pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup noble made buffalo sauce
  • 28 g blue cheese crumbles
  • 6 oz chicken breast cooked & shredded
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil to brush on the crust edges
  • 1 tbsp bolthouse farms ranch dressing drizzle more if needed

Instructions
 

  • Make sure you take your pre-prepared dough out of the fridge an hour or so before you want to use it. Place it in a large bowl and throw a tea towel loosely over the top. This allows the dough to proof and you should notice it get bigger in size.
  • For the shredded chicken, you can either buy lean pulled chicken, or if you have a crockpot or instant pot you can slow cook it until tender and shreds easily. I like to add 1/2 the marinade half-way through cooking. This step can take 4 to 5 hours so make sure you prep your chicken in advance.
  • Preheat the oven to 475° and spray your pizza pan with a little non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with some flour.
  • Either on a lightly floured surface or directly on to the sheet pan, punch the dough out so that it spreads to the size of your pan. If you want to recreate the "ugly crust" vibe, make sure you make the edges a little thicker.
  • Spread the remainder of the buffalo marinade over the base of the pizza, leave 1" of the outer edge bare. Use the olive oil and lightly brush the outer edge.
  • At this point, I like to cook the pizza for about 5-7 minutes before adding all the other ingredients. But this is optional, you can also just throw all the ingredients on now and cook it all in one go. I just like to ensure that my pizza crust is cooked all the way through. Raw dough kinda sucks! So it depends how thick your pizza is.
  • Remove the pizza crust from the oven - it should have raised and started to turn golden. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pizza; sprinkle with the blue cheese crumbles, spread the shredded chicken to cover and then drizzle the ranch dressing in a circular motion from the outer edge to the center of the pie.
  • Bake the pizza for another 15 minutes or until the pie is completely golden brown and the cheese is melty. Remove from the oven and drizzle with a little more hot sauce if desired. Devour immediately!
