Ingredients

FOR THE PIZZA CRUST

  • 1/4 ounce instant yeast (aks “fast-rising” or “fast-acting” dry yeast)
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

FOR THE TOPPINGS

  • 1.5 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce or more as needed – use my homemade buffalo sauce recipe
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper sliced (optional)
  • 1.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese or use 3 ounces each of mozzarella and shredded cheddar
  • 3 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
  • Ranch dressing for serving if desired

Instructions

FOR THE PIZZA CRUST

  • Add the water to a bowl and stir in the yeast until it is dissolved. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, until it becomes foamy.
  • Stir in sugar, salt and oil. Add the flour and hand mix until a dough ball forms. Knead it a couple of minutes. If it feels too sticky, add a bit more flour.
  • Lightly grease a bowl, add the dough, and roll it around to grease all sides of it. Cover and let rise on your counter about 30 minutes. It should double in size.
  • Roll the dough into a 12-inch round. Hand form the edges for the outer crust.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.

FOR THE BUFFALO CHICKEN PIZZA

  • First, spread out the cooked chicken, buffalo sauce, and jalapeno peppers over the pizza crust.
  • Evenly spread the cheeses over the top.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the crust is nice and crispy.
  • Cool slightly, then slice and serve with ranch dressing, if desired.
