BUFFALO CHICKEN PIZZA

Back when I was a student at the University of Delaware, I had a routine every day. After my 11:30 class, I’d walk down Main Street and visit the most amazing pizza shop in the entire world: Margheritas Pizza.
For $2.50, I could walk in and grab a one topping, ginormous slice of buffalo chicken pizza with a soda. It was heaven.
My part-time job paid just enough to fund my addiction to New York style pizza…. Not to mention, coffee.
While I’d originally only been in love with their pepperoni pizza, my friend introduced me to their buffalo chicken pizza. At first, I was completely ooged out at the thought of hot sauce and chicken on pizza…. It just didn’t seem natural.
However, after trying one slice, I was hooked. It was like the most amazing thing ever. Take a killer pizza and combine it with boneless buffalo bites.
Anyhow, fast forward a few years and you’d find me married to Mrs. Crumbs and in California. Desperate for good pizza (none around here), we began formulating our own recipe. The easiest pizza sauce ever and homemade New York Style pizza dough are the tried and true recipes (several years over) we use on Friday nights.
While we love our pepperoni pies, we wanted to see if we could replicate that amazing buffalo chicken pizza from my college days. After a few tries, we were able to dial it in with success with one exception: real food.
Beyond the crust, we use homemade dressings. Depending on what we have in the kitchen, it’s either homemade ranch dressing or homemade blue cheese dressing – both are amazing.
This pizza is simple, easy and every single one of our friends request that we make this on pizza nights. Our friends will not steer you wrong : )
