We’re buffalo chicken fanatics. This could be the reason why we feel piling lots of shredded chicken tossed in a spicy buffalo wing sauce and cheese onto pizza is perfectly normal. It is, right?
Making Crazy Good Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks
This one is so incredibly easy to make. Shredded cooked chicken is tossed in a whole cup of store-bought buffalo wing sauce. Buffalo wing sauce is sold next to the hot sauces and are a little creamier than regular hot sauce. You could make your own, too. Just follow our sauce recipe, which we toss chicken in for our Easy Baked Chicken Hot Wings Recipe.
Then, we throw it all on top of partially cooked pizza dough and top with cheese.
Bake until bubbly and you’re done and ready to serve.
The pizza dough we used is actually from Pillsbury. We’re sure you’ve noticed their products in your grocery store – we used their Classic Pizza Crust for this. Pillsbury did pay us to develop this recipe using their pizza crust.
If you can’t find Pillsbury’s pizza crust, feel free to use any dough, store-bought pizza or homemade.

What you need to know. You can find buffalo wing sauce sold next to hot sauces - it looks a little creamier than regular hot sauce. If you are not a fan, you could always substitute your favorite barbecue sauce for the buffalo sauce.
Equipment you’ll need. You will need a baking sheet, small saucepan and a spoon.
- 1 (13.8 oz) roll Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust (Substitute 12 ounces of refrigerated pizza dough)
- 3/4 cup (237 ml) buffalo wing sauce (look for “wing sauce” not “hot sauce”)
- 2 cups (210 grams) shredded cooked chicken
- 1 cup (60 grams) grated cheddar cheese
- 1 cup (60 grams) grated mozzarella cheese
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Then, spray a baking sheet (with sides) with cooking spray.
- Form pizza dough into a 15-inch by 10-inch rectangle (this doesn’t have to be exact, just close). Place dough onto baking sheet then bake for 8 minutes.
- While the pizza crust bakes, add buffalo wing sauce and shredded chicken to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
- Evenly spread the buffalo chicken over the baked pizza crust then scatter the cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese and half of the sliced green onions on top.
- Bake pizza 6 to 10 minutes until cheese has melted and starts to bubble. Scatter remaining sliced green onions on top. Then, serve
