How to Make Crazy Good Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks
This buffalo chicken pizza is so incredibly easy. You can use homemade pizza dough or buy pre-made dough from the store.
For the buffalo chicken, we toss shredded cooked chicken with a whole cup of buffalo wing sauce. You can make our tender and flavorful shredded chicken recipe or buy a store-bought rotisserie chicken and shred that.
We spread the chicken on top of partially cooked pizza dough and finish with lots of cheese. Then we slide the buffalo chicken pizza into a hot oven and bake until the crust is crisp and the cheese is melted.
This pizza is a crowd pleaser. If you are serving a crowd, try cutting the pizza into pizza sticks.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza Sticks
These pizza sticks are absolutely perfect for parties or a fun dinner. It’s fast, too. Plus, store-bought buffalo wing sauce makes things extra easy. You can find buffalo wing sauce sold next to hot sauces – it looks a little creamier than regular hot sauce. You can also make your own. If you are not a fan, substitute your favorite barbecue sauce.
