Buffalo chicken pizza took a trip to Italy and came back full of spices like paprika, rosemary, thyme and more!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon spicy paprika
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 4 cups wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with olive oil.
  2. In a saute pan over medium heat, drizzle olive oil and saute the onion. Add the chicken. Season with salt, paprika and thyme.
  3. Add half of the tomato sauce and mix well. If too dry, add more olive oil. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the wheat flour, yeast and sugar.
  5. Add the water and olive oil little by little and stir until you get a smooth and sticky dough.
  6. Transfer dough to prepared baking dish. Brush with remaining tomato sauce, add the chicken and press down so that the chicken sinks into the dough.
