Buffalo Chicken Pizza with Blue Cheese & Caramelized Onions

Spice from the chicken. Sweet from the onions. Tang-gent from the blue cheese. (That would be tangy-pungent.) Pizza perfection achieved!

Servings - 8 slices


  • 1 pizza crust recipe store bought or homemade
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 medium white onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1/4 cup Frank's red hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz. crumbled blue cheese


  • Get homemade pizza crust started in the bread machine, dough cycle. Follow manufacturers directions for your bread machine. Store-bought: follow directions on package to prep or pre-bake dough.
  • Caramelize the onions. In a skillet, add the olive oil and sugar, along with the sliced white onions. Let cook over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring often. They will be ready when they are soft, browned and sweet to taste.
  • Toss the shredded chicken in the red hot sauce. Let soak for a few minutes if you have time.
  • Once the pizza dough is finished, rolled it out onto a clean, floured surface. Then sprinkle a little cornmeal on the counter and place the dough on top. Add the pizza sauce (I spread this really thin...thinner than normal...because I wanted the Franks red hot sauce to be the predominant flavor, not the pizza sauce!), mozzarella cheese. Then sprinkle the shredded chicken, caramelized onions and blue cheese crumbles over top of the mozzarella.
  • Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and dough has cooked through.
  • Prep a small side salad, carrot sticks or other simple veggie.
  • Serve Buffalo Chicken Pizza with Blue Cheese and Caramelized Onions.
