I admit. I have never made homemade pizza dough. I've made it from a pizza kit or a mix but I've never done it completely from scratch.
Then Biz from My Bizzy Kitchen showed me the error of my ways.
She also eats a lot of hot sauce so what better way to break in a new crust by whipping out the Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce!
This was good. First I smothered the bottom with ranch dressing. The a layer of hot sauce. Then some green onions. (it needed more onion, sorry Biz)
Then I added chicken that had been cooked in the same hot sauce and shredded, a pile of cheese and more onions. (it still needed more onions)
What a pretty pizza! Okay, so who knows what the shape is! It still tasted good!! (did I mention that it needed more onions though?)
It was delicious but still needed a tweak more flavor so I smothered it with more hot sauce. This was some rockin' pizza!
Crust from My Bizzy Kitchen
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 packet of yeast or 2 1/4 tsp. yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 cup warm water
Mix the warm water and yeast and let sit for a couple of minutes. Add the flour and salt and mix. Add more flour until it isn't gooey sticky and is easy to spread or roll. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray and spread your crust on it. Prebake for about 5 - 7 minutes at 400. Add toppings. Cook for about 8 - 10 minutes. I take it off the baking sheet for a few minutes at the end to crisp up the crust.
Buffalo Chicken Pizza
1/2 cup ranch dressing, light
1/4 cup Franks Buffalo Wing sauce
4 - 5 green onions
1/2 lb. cooked chicken (this is approximate, I can't remember exactly how much I used.)
1/4 cup Franks Buffalo Wing sauce (for cooking chicken)
1 1/2 cups mozzerella cheese
Cook chicken in hot sauce until done. Shred and set aside. (use as much hot sauce as you want with this, I think I used about 1/4 cup, not sure)
Make crust. Cook for about 5 minutes at 400. Take out of oven and spread with ranch dressing. Then spread wing sauce over the ranch. Cut some onions on top. Then add shredded chicken and cheese. Then add more onions. You can't have too many onions. :-) Cook for about 8 - 10 minutes at 400. I took it off the tray for about 3 - 4 minutes after. The cooking time will vary depending on your oven. I don't time things well.
I made this a couple of weeks ago. I no longer remember where I wrote down my exact measurements. I am pretty sure about most everything but the chicken, I don't remember exactly how much I put on the pizza. I made like a pound but used the extra for salads throughout the week.
I do remember that the whole pizza came to right about 2000 calories so 1/4 pizza, which is pretty big, was 500 calories. This with some fruit was a nice meal.
