New Pizza Favorites: Buffalo Chicken and BBQ Chicken

by GettingFreedom on April 21, 2009

After making Buffalo Chicken Pizza for dinner Saturday night–I think we have found a new favorite in our house. I adapted ours from Rachael Ray’s recipe. While I was mixing it all up, I feared that it would be too spicy for my the little ones (they liked it–but they are pretty tough), so I came up with a BBQ Chicken pizza as well.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (I used about 1.5 palm sized pieces) ($2.25)
4 tablespoons butter (.20)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (pennies)
4 Tablespoons hot sauce, such as Louisiana or Franks. (We used a store brand, and it was perfect) (Ours was a HUGE store brand jug–pennies)
1 (14.5 oz) can of Diced Tomatoes
(You can sub in tomato sauce. I was out! One can makes enough sauce for 2 pizzas) (.25)
¼ cup shredded cheese of your choice (.30)
 
Drizzle chicken breasts with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with Montreal Steak Seasoning. I then cooked ours on my George Foreman grill, but you could always grill outside, or even use your broiler on your oven.
While the chicken is cooking mix up your pizza crust (or use store bought). Let your pizza crust sit a bit, and put your canned tomatoes in the food processor or blender. Puree.
Spread your pizza crust out onto your pizza pan or pizza stone and spread half of your diced tomato puree. Reserve the other half for another pizza, or for another use.

Add your chicken breasts to your food processor and chop them up. Or chop finely. I chop mine up into little bitty bits so that it would go further.

In a medium sauce pan melt the butter. Once the butter is melted add the hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Once combined, add in chopped up chicken and mix together.
Spread onto pizza and top with shredded cheese. Bake at 425° for approximately 20 minutes (or until crust is golden and cooked through).
Super delish topped with a dab of Ranch Dressing!
 
And now, for the BBQ Chicken Version. Are you ready?!
BBQ Chicken Pizza
Grill and chop your chicken just as you would for the buffalo chicken.
Combine with your reserved tomato puree
as well as about ½ cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (we used Kraft).
Once fully incorporated, spread onto your pizza crust. Top with ¼ cup of shredded cheese. And bake at 425° as directed above.
Each pizza makes enough toppings for a 16″ pizza. Both of which can be made for under $3.50 a piece!
Easy peasy! This would be great for entertaining, game night, or unexpected company.
