Buffalo chicken pizza

Let’s be honest – we all get busy with work and life, and sometimes things slip by us. Take our blog – we have been busy cooking, testing and creating new recipes, but we haven’t had time to actually sit down and put it out for the world to see. Shame on us.

After a long few days at work both in my office and Bryan’s office, a hot meal at home was just what we needed. But when you are starting to cook your meal at 7:30 p.m. (yes East coasters, some of us do eat earlier than 9 p.m.) you typically want something quick. What is the best option? A quick and easy recipe.

We had tried a recipe for Tex-Mex Pizza a few weeks ago from America’s Test Kitchen and it was delicious, so I thought I’d make my own variation. After all, we didn’t have refried beans in the house and the store I stopped at before I got home didn’t have any on the shelf so I improvised to make a quick buffalo chicken pizza. I’ve noted the ingredients we had on hand below.

Ingredients for two:

  • 2 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 10 ounce can Valley Fresh chicken breast, drained
  • Sabra buffalo style hummus
  • 1/4 C. Maytag blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 C. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 5-6 green onions, white portion sliced
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • Olive oil

What to do:

  • Preheat your oven to 475 F.
  • Brush olive oil on both sides of the flour tortillas and place them on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake tortillas for 2-3 minutes, flip and bake additional 2-3 minutes until they start to brown.
  • Carefully spread your desired amount of hummus on one side of each tortilla almost to the edge.
  • Spread the chicken chunks over the hummus.
  • Top with blue cheese, green onions and cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes – you want the tortillas to brown slightly on the edges.
  • Take out and top with chopped celery.
  • Cut with pizza cutter and serve.
