Buffalo Chicken Pizza w/Monterey Jack Cheese
- 3 scallions, sliced
- 3 tablespoons hot sauce, mild
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons grill seasoning
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- 1 pizza dough crust, pre-baked
- ½ cup blue cheese crumbles
- ½ cup tomato sauce
- ¾ lb. chicken breast cutlets
- Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Preheat the oven at 425ºF and preheat the grill at high as well. Meanwhile, take a bowl and place chicken breast cutlets in it. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over it (eyeball it) and sprinkle the grill seasoning as well. Use your fingers to coat the seasoning properly. Once the grill is hot, grill the chicken breast cutlets for about 2 to 3 minutes on all sides. Till then, we will prepare the sauce for the pizza. In a bowl, combine butter, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and tomato sauce together. When the chicken is properly grilled, place it on the cutting board, and cut into slices (however big or small you like). Coat the pizza dough with the prepared sauce and cover with the buffalo chicken slices. Spread both cheeses on top and place the pizza inside the oven for about 15 to 18 minutes to bake. Just before the pizza is ready, sprinkle scallions on top. When your pizza is nice and crispy, remove from the oven, cut into slices, and serve hot.
Buffalo Chicken Pizza w/Gorgonzola Cheese

- 2 pizza crust, pre-baked
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- ½ cup celery stalks, sliced
- ½ cup buffalo wing sauce
- 2/3 cup Gorgonzola cheese
To prepare this delicious homemade pizza, we need to preheat the oven at 450ºF. Take two baking sheets to place 2 pizza crusts on top. First we will spread the barbecue sauce on both the crusts (you can also use the regular pizza sauce) and sprinkle sliced celery on top. In a bowl, combine cooked chicken pieces with the Buffalo wing sauce. In a separate bowl, mix Gorgonzola and mozzarella cheese together. Evenly place it on both the pizza crusts and top with both cheeses. Place the pizza crusts inside the oven and bake them for 15 to 20 minutes. When the cheese begins to melt and the crusts turn crispy, remove the pizzas from the oven, and cut them into slices. Serve the buffalo chicken pizzas hot.

Preheat the oven at 475ºF. Meanwhile, take a pan to combine Tabasco sauce with butter and apple cider vinegar. Mix everything properly and add the chicken breast pieces in. Once the chicken is coated thoroughly, turn the stove off and leave it on one side. Next, we need another bowl to mix cream cheese with blue cheese and then add half & half in simultaneously. Place the pizza dough on a baking sheet and spread the cream cheese-blue cheese mix on top. The next layer will be of the chicken breast pieces.
