Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza Ingredients
You’ll need just 6 basic ingredients to make this buffalo flatbread:
- Naan bread – This is my favorite because it’s easiest and delicious, but you can also use flatbread, pita bread, traditional pizza crusts, or even tortillas. (Check my tortilla pizza post for instruction.)
- Buffalo chicken – Make slow cooker buffalo chicken, or simply toss cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken with buffalo sauce. Chop or shred chicken before topping.
- Mozzarella cheese – Buy shredded cheese to save some time. You could also use cheddar or jack cheese.
- Blue cheese – Buy crumbled blue cheese.
- Green onions – You could also use chives or diced red onion.
- Buffalo wing sauce – Add the hot sauce to taste. I like Frank’s red hot, but use your favorite brand.
