Buffalo Chicken Pizza

buffalo chicken pizza recipeMy son’s favorite restaurant is California Pizza Kitchen. When given the option, it is always his first choice. I can think of worse places to have to go when my children are given the option of where we eat. The last time we visited CPK, we were alarmed. They took our favorite pizza off of the menu! The Buffalo Chicken Pizza at CPK was a treat. It was just spicy enough, had a great crust, and the best sauce for dipping. It was a ranch blue cheese dipping sauce that was perfect to cool off your mouth. I tried to recreate a version, and I have to say, this version is pretty delicious. I did not make the dipping sauce, but next time, I will give it a go. It satisfied our Buffalo Chicken Pizza craving and cost significantly less than the CPK version.

I also used a Boboli crust because I was in a hurry to get dinner ready. It works in a pinch, but I much prefer a homemade crust. If you are using a Boboli, give it a little toast before you add the sauce and toppings.
