Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza | Taste and Tell

I usually have an idea of what I want to write in a blog post before I even sit down to write. But if I have no idea of a story I want to share, or any idea of what I want to write, I usually go completely blank. And I’m having one of those blank times right now. Which actually, is totally unexpected because my husband started a new job this week, and I’ve barely seen him. You would think I’d have all kinds of things to talk about since I have spent the majority of the week talking to a 2 1/2 year old and a 6-month old!

I guess I just talk about the pizza, right? That’s what you are really here for anyway!

Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza | Taste and Tell

This pizza….oh this pizza. We all know that I am drawn towards anything buffalo themed, anyway, so when I saw a buffalo chicken pizza, I was all over it. And all of you nay-sayers that say that Rachael Ray’s recipes can’t really be made in 30 minutes – give this one a try. I totally had this done in 30 minutes, except for the fact that I made my own pizza dough. That added on about 10 minutes, but you could totally use store bought dough, or dough that you made earlier and froze. But this one is totally perfect for a weeknight.

This was everything I expected it to be. A little bit spicy from the hot sauce, but a little bit cool from the blue cheese. I realize that a lot of people don’t like blue cheese, so if you are one of those, I would just add on some extra Mozzarella. It would still be good. My pizza dough was a bit too thick (since I let it sit out for about an hour before I actually made dinner, and it rose too much) but that is the only complaint I had from this pizza. Easy, fast, and packed with flavor – what else could you ask for??

Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
adapted from 30 Minute Meals
Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 2 large chicken breast halves
  • extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2 teaspoons grill seasoning
  • 1 pound pizza dough, store bought or homemade
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons wing sauce
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • ½ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Preheat a grill pan.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts open like a book to create 4 thinner pieces of chicken. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the grill seasoning. When the grill is hot, add the chicken and cook until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Stretch the dough to form a pizza either using your hands or by rolling out with a rolling pin. Set the dough on a pizza pan, or if using a pizza stone, set your dough on a pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal or covered with a piece of parchment paper.
  4. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add in the Worcestershire, hot sauce and tomato sauce.
  5. When the chicken is done, remove to a cutting board and let rest for a few minutes. Thinly slice, then add to the hot sauce mixture and stir to coat the chicken. Cover the pizza dough with the chicken and sauce, then top with mozzarella, blue cheese and scallions.
  6. Place the pizza in the preheated oven and cook until the dough has browned and the cheese is bubbly, about 18 minutes.

    Love this flavor….pretty sure I would have to fight my hubby for the last slice. 😉

    After spending the week with two kids I really don’t have a lot to say either….LOL! My husband travels a lot for work and I usually end up feeling like a zombie after I’ve taken care of them on my own for the week.

    Buffalo chicken pizza is my all-time favorite pizza. I make a version of this at home, but her sauce recipe is a bit different and definitely worth a try. Looks delicious!

  3. Bev Weidner says:

    Good. Grief. Almighty.

    Girl, I would hitch hike for this pizza. Alone, in the dark, with only 1 bag, I’D DO IT.

    And I just might.

  4. Liz says:

    yeah that looks pretty awesome!

  5. I used to make this pizza weekly but forgot about it – thanks for reminding me! I’m adding it to next week’s menu!

  6. I have made a version of this pizza before – it’s amazing! It’s great because I love the flavor of wings, but hate picking the meat off of the bone and I love pizza – win win!

  7. Tasha says:

    I really don’t ever eat chicken any more, but if there was ever a recipe to make me do it, it would definitely be a buffalo one. I love boneless buffalo anything, and especially a pizza!

  8. I love buffalo flavored everything! I will be giving this pizza a try for sure! This will be perfect when we do make your own pizza. I can have this, 6 year old can have his plain cheese, and hubby can be his normal picky self as well!

  9. I am loving buffalo chicken inspired dishes lately. And the 30 minute really makes this a perfect weeknight meal for me :) Looks delicious!

  10. Sharon says:

  11. I’ve made this before too and it is really good! I can attest that it is made in 30 minutes! Yum!

  12. Curt says:

  13. Joanne says:

    I definitely have those blank moments…but this pizza speaks for itself! Buffalo heaven.

  14. You had me at buffalo first. Pizza second. I’m making this!

  15. corina says:

    Looks amazing and I bet it taste delicious!

  16. Buffalo chicken is good, always. But in a pizza form? Perfect!

  17. camie says:

    This looks incredible. I love anything hot and spicy and if it has cheese too it’s even better!

  18. Give me buffalo chicken anything and I’ll be a very happy girl. Frank’s Red Hot makes the best buffalo sauce!

  19. We have a tradition of making pizza every Friday night and I am always looking for new ideas. This one is definitely next on the list.

  20. Wow- what a great looking pizza! I can’t wait to try it out. Thanks for the tasty dinner idea!

  21. Hopie says:

    I clicked on your link from your comment on Dine and Dish because I, too, am a sucker for anything with buffalo sauce. So good. I probably can’t get buffalo sauce where I live. I think I’m going to have to learn how to make it! And when I do, this recipe’s going at the top of my list of things to do with it.

    We have a Friday Night Pizza Night tradition at our house and Buffalo Chicken Pizza makes the menu about once a month. If I know I will be in a time crunch, I usually plan chicken for earlier in the week and just cook up some extra. I toss the chicken in my buffalo sauce (franks and butter), spread some ranch dressing on the pizza crust, top with sauced chicken and mozzerella (I am the only one who likes the blue- so we stick with mozzie). If I have them, I will sometimes add some green onions or red peppers… The ranch dressing makes it- YUM!
