Buffalo Chicken Bread

This was a lot like eat Buffalo Chicken Dip wrapped in pizza dough. I know, I know- i need to stop using such dirty words. Buffalo Chicken Dip...pizza dough...eating...filthy.

But yeah, this was beyond simple & it makes more than enough for dinner + lunch the next day. So i give this my "dear God I just got home & 2 kids are screaming & I'm so tired but we need food stamp NOW" stamp of approval.

Buffalo Chicken Bread (adapted from fanltf)
You Need:
1 bag of pizza dough
1 1/2 cans canned chicken, drained (or about 2 cups of cooked or shredded chicken- whatever you have)
2 cups shredded cheese ( i used mozzarella & cheddar)
1/2 cup Frank's wing sauce
1/2 cup of ranch dressing
garlic powder, smoked paprika, onion powder (optional)

Directions: Pre heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with non stick foil or parchment paper.

Chop up your canned chicken & toss it into a pan with some salt & pepper- add the 1/4th cup of the hot sauce & saute until well mixed & hot. Turn off the heat & let it sit while you prepare your dough.
Flour your work surface & spread/roll out your dough into a large rectangle.

now you may be asking yourself, "wtf is up with the glasses..?" well, i suck at spreading/rolling pizza dough. no matter what i do, no matter how much at room temp it is, no matter WHAT- my dough will not stretch. it just creeps back in on itself. i feel like there must be some secret to this whole pizza dough thing- but i guess i'm not privy to it. because as you can see, i have to use glasses to keep my dough from spreading. don't you judge me.

ok- back to the dough. roll it out into a large rectangle & then spread on the ranch dressing & remaining wing sauce. top with the chicken & cheese (& anything else you might want to throw in there. may i suggest bacon? heck yes i may) i added some garlic powder, onion powder & smoked paprika.

Now start rolling up the dough. Make sure to fold in the ends so the filling doesn't come creeping out during it's jaunt in the oven.

Roll, roll, roll & when you get to the end- pop it into the baking sheet- seam side down.

It should look like a massive burrito. Feel free to admire your handiwork & give it a gentle pat. I did this- i think it made all the difference.

Put it in the oven & bake it for 20-25 minutes (watch it- pizza dough is so finnicky)
Pull it out & let it rest for about 5 minutes.

Then give in to your desires & slice it up & put it on a plate.

Then eat it- i'd suggest using a fork- because it's classier that way.
Pin It!
