WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  • Chicken: I use canned chicken for the base of the crust; cooked and shredded chicken or ground chicken are great alternatives.
  • Parmesan: Parmesan cheese helps flavors and acts as a binder.
  • Egg: Bind the ingredients for the crust together using an egg.
  • Toppings: Top the pizza with Franks Buffalo Sauce mixed with butter, and fresh mozzarella, and garnish with scallions.

HOW TO MAKE BUFFALO CHICKEN CRUST PIZZA  

Canned chicken spread onto a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Preheat the oven to 350° F (176° C) and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the chicken onto it and bake for 10 minutes.

Add the chicken to a bowl with egg and parmesan cheese.

Remove the chicken and add it to a mixing bowl with parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and one egg; stir to combine.

Roll out the chicken crust.

Increase the oven temperature to 500° F (260° C), and line the baking sheet with new parchment paper. Spread the chicken onto it and form it into a circle.

Place another sheet of parchment paper on top and roll the chicken out with a rolling pin to ¼ inch. Discard the top piece of parchment paper.

Bake the chicken for 8 minutes.

Combine butter and buffalo sauce in a bowl.

Melt one tablespoon of butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 10-20 seconds. Stir in the buffalo sauce and set it aside.

Top the chicken crust with buffalo sauce and mozzarella.

Replace the parchment paper on the baking sheet and carefully slide the crust onto it. Spread buffalo sauce over the top and add mozzarella cheese; bake for 8 minutes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

What is chicken crust made of?

There are several ways to create a delicious pizza crust made out of chicken, but I keep it simple; get your hands on some canned or shredded chicken, parmesan cheese, an egg, and a dash of garlic powder for flavor- that’s all you need!

What kind of chicken can you use?

I use canned chicken, but you can boil and shred the chicken and make it using the same recipe. Another option is to use ground chicken, but adjust the cooking process. Add the uncooked ground chicken to a bowl with parmesan cheese and an egg. Stir to combine, then add the ingredients to a parchment paper in a circle. You don’t need to roll it out just yet, but this helps maintain the form when it’s time to roll. Instead of the first 10-minute bake, cook the chicken mixture for 20 minutes, then follow the remaining instructions accordingly.
