Recipe: BBQ Buffalo Chicken Pizza

I try and keep some quick to fix items on hand for those weeknights when I just don't feel like big meal planning - pizza crust is one of those items! I also had recently picked up some Tyson Grilled & Ready Frozen Chicken Strips and wanted to try those too! So - BBQ Buffalo Chicken Pizza it was! 

I decided to make a homemade mix of sauces and used buffalo sauce, bbq sauce and my favorite datil pepper sauce from Firehouse Subs! I mixed them in a bowl until I liked the flavor and the kick.

I heated up the Tyson frozen chicken strips for a few minutes to thaw them out. I was using the Southwestern strips. They make things like this super quick & easy.

On my pizza crust - I brushed the crust with olive oil first and then spread the chicken strips across the pizza crust. I also sauteed a little spinach to get some vegetables in there. I topped that with my sauce mixture and topped it with CoJack cheese. Then in the oven for about 10-15 min (refer to your package directions - you may need to pre-bake the crust for a few minutes).

Voila! Fluffy and crunchy crust with a great bbq buffalo pizza in just 15 minutes! This is one of those things you don't even need a recipe for - just mix it up and use whatever is in your fridge or whatever you like. Branch out from the traditional pepperoni & red sauce - I made a shrimp/pesto pizza that Larry still raves about!

All in all - it was a good, quick pizza. The chicken was a little dry - but good to use in a pinch. I would add more veggies next time - but I didn't have any. :-(
