Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks

Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks

– Sponsored Post –

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.

Pizza + Chicken + Buffalo Wing Sauce + Cheese = Perfect Party Appetizer

We love cutting the pizza into sticks. This way, eating is way more fun. Wouldn’t this make a perfect appetizer for parties, maybe even a football party?

    Great recipe! I had to use BBQ Rib Sauce instead though because in Australia, it’s hard to find Buffalo Sauce. Is there a better alternative that is available?

      Hi Jeremy, Check out our hot wings recipe. We share a DIY buffalo sauce there — you can use that in place of store-bought buffalo sauce.

    Great tip for shredding chicken/cooked meat. Put in your stand mixer with the regular “paddle” attachment and turn up the power slowly until it’s strong enough to shred the chicken, without redecorating the ceiling with meat!

    I definitely will try this recipe. I wanted to share something yummy with you. I like to mix shredded chicken with buffalo sauce and some shredded Parmesan. Then roll it up egg roll style in egg roll wrappers and deep fry. My husband likes to dip them in ranch dressing.

    If you REALLY wanna turn it into a “passion killer” along with all the green onions, add crumbled blue cheese! There’s lots of room to experiment, so add what you want. I also mix the sauce (all of it) with a shredded rotisserie chicken I buy in the deli of the grocery store, wrap it up, and let it sit overnight in the fridge so the chicken has time to soak up all the flavor of the sauce. Love this pizza! Every time I take it to a party it’s gone in 30 seconds haha 🙂

    Wasn’t a big fan, we thought it tasted more like a “buffalo cheese” pizza, it lacked any chicken flavor. When we try it again I will:
    1. Add a thin layer of ranch dressing to crust before adding toppings. Maybe some dry ranch seasoning on the crust.
    2. Use chunks of chicken instead of shredded chicken. I think shredding the chicken took away from the chicken flavor.
    3. Cut back on so much cheese (maybe 3/4c each)….made it too greasy tasting to us.

    I just wanted to say that I found this recipe on Pinterest, and OMG it is amazing. I first made it for Superbowl, but it has since become a staple in our house and I’ve told several people about it!

    Thank you!!
