Sunday nights in the Scott home mean one thing- pizza. It started accidentally, but ended up becoming something we loved to do every Sunday night. As teachers, Sunday means getting ready for school on Monday and trying to soak up every last minute of free time. Most Sundays we enjoy a Tombstone pizza. There are fewer things easier to make than a frozen pizza. They may not be the healthy choice, but sometimes you just have to splurge. I’m learning though that buying a pre-made Pillsbury crust can make pizza making just as easy as frozen pizza.
Last Sunday I was meandering around Pinterest and came across this delicious looking EASY pizza. Now, I’m not a food blogger (yet) so my photography skills are via Instagram and I only take pictures of the end result.
This is the blog I got the actual recipe from: http://www.inspiredtaste.net/18318/cheesy-buffalo-chicken-pizza-sticks/
The original recipe called for 1 cup cheddar cheese and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. We didn’t have those, but we had a big bag of Colby jack cheese, so I just used that. I felt like it did the same thing.
I will give a tip for shredded chicken. This may be so anti-fancy cook,but I just boiled a few chicken breasts. They obviously don’t come out flavorful, but the chicken is so easy to shred. For this kind of recipe, where you end up coating the chicken in buffalo sauce- it doesn’t need to be super seasoned before hand.
But anyway- here is the recipe . It is yummy. You should try it. This Sunday we won’t be eating pizza because of the super bowl, but I’m sure we’ll have pizza sometime this week.
1 Pillsbury original pizza crust
3/4 cup buffalo wing sauce (not hot sauce)
2 cups cooked chicken
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions thinly sliced.
Bake the pizza crust for 8 minutes before adding any toppings. Shred the chicken and add it to the buffalo sauce in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
Spread the buffalo chicken over the pizza crust and cover with the shredded cheese. Bake for another 6-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Scatter green onions over top of the pizza.
