Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Portion control is the key. One slice of this, with a few fresh vegetables, is a meal.


Pizza Dough (with whole wheat,) prepared according to recipe
1 tbsp olive oil (separated)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into small pieces, about 15 oz
1 tbsp Smart Balance Buttery spread
1/4 cup Hot Sauce
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
6 oz mozzarella cheese


Prepare pizza dough according to recipe.

Oil large pizza pan with one tsp olive oil. Stretch dough to fit pan. Set aside to rise in a warm place, 30-60 minutes.

Cut 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Heat remaining 2 tsp olive oil in a pan at medium heat. Cook chicken until no longer pink.

Add Smart Balance and hot sauce to chicken. Toss to coat.

Spread blue cheese dressing onto unbaked crust. Add chicken and sauce. Sprinkle with mozarella cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Makes 8 generous servings.

  1. With a crust like that-one piece ought to be a meal!

  2. It is. I'm rather fond of thick crust. One piece is a substantial meal, which helps spread out the calories and fat from the meat, salad dressing, and cheese.
