All the Buffalo Chicken flavor, with blue cheese crumbles. A toasted panko topping gives this pizza the crisp bite of a perfectly fried hot wing.


  • Buffalo Hot Wing Sauce
  • 1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 2 tbsp. White Vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Fresh Garlic, pressed or grated
  • Panko Topping
  • 3/4 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Celery Salt
  • Hot Wing Pizza
  • 1 Prepared Pizza Dough
  • 1-1.5 cups Grated Low Moisture Mozzarella
  • 2 cups Rotisserie Chicken
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • 2 Scallions, sliced thinly for garnish
  • Blue Cheese Dressing, optional for drizzling on baked pizza



Preheat the oven with a pizza steel or stone to 450 degrees.

Buffalo Hot Wing Sauce


Over low heat, melt the butter. When the butter is melted, add the rest of the ingredients and whisk to combine. You want to get this mixture bubbling, but not boiling. Keep it over low/medium heat and whisk every few minutes. Let it cook together for about 5 minutes.

Panko Topping


In a small bowl mix one tablespoon of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon celery salt with 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs. Stir together until panko is coated with olive oil. The mixture will still be somewhat dry.

Hot Wing Pizza


Place the 2 cups of rotisserie chicken in a medium bowl and pour the Buffalo Hot Wing sauce over the chicken, toss to coat the chicken in the sauce. Set aside.


Toss, spin, stretch or roll your dough into a roughly 12-inch round.


Evenly spread 1.5 cups of grated mozzarella cheese on the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border for the crust.


Top the mozzarella with the Buffalo-sauced chicken.


Sprinkle the blue cheese crumbles evenly over the chicken. And top it all off with the panko breadcrumb mixture.


Let the pizza bake for 10-15 minutes, until the dough is puffed and golden, the cheese is melted and the panko breadcrumbs on top have toasted and turned golden.


When the pizza comes out of the oven, top with a drizzle of blue cheese dressing if you like. Then finish it off with the sliced scallions.
